8BitDo Controller IMG

Have you heard about the 8BitDo M30? It's a gamepad that resembles the legendary 6-button Genesis / Mega Drive controller and works with the Nintendo Switch and legacy systems. We even did our very own hardware review for it last week, explaining how fantastic it was for anyone who is a fan of 2D fighters and various other classic games on the Switch.

In his latest video, our lovely video producer Alex Olney has now gone hands-on with this controller to see what all the fuss is about and put it to the test. He even went to the extent of hooking it up to his own classic system with the wireless dongle and noted how effortless it was to use. See for yourself below:
