8Bitdo’s DIY mod-kit adds Bluetooth to your original classic gamepads

July 18, 2018 / DEAN TAKAHASHI

Playing classic games on PC or Nintendo Switch is a great way to get a taste of the past, but playing with an Xbox controller or even a replica from a company like 8Bitdo might take away from the authenticity of the experience. But 8Bitdo has a new option for all of you who wish you could plug your NES or Sega Genesis controller into your systems, and it’s called the 8Bitdo DIY.This is a new mod-kit that 8Bitdo will send you to transform your original controllers into wireless Bluetooth gamepads. This works with the controllers for the NES, Super Nintendo, and Sega Genesis (it also works with the Japanese Super Famicom or Mega Drive controllers as well as the Classic Edition versions of Nintendo’s gamepads).
