Peripheral maker 8Bitdo has released a new firmware update for its range of controllers which eliminates input lag when playing on Switch.

8Bitdo produces a range of retro-themed pads which mimic the look and feel of classic controllers from the NES and SNES era. The firmware update which provides Switch support went live earlier this year, but there have been complaints about input lag from some customers. 

We didn't notice any during our time with the controllers, but 8Bitdo clearly feels there's an issue as version 4.01 of the firmware - which is available now - specifically addresses controller lag.
