Remember the 8BitDo M30 gamepad our lovely video producer Alex Olney went hands-on with last week? Well, he's just discovered something else about this controller after taking a look at the instruction manual.

The D-Pad can actually emulate left joysticks. Apparently, it's a "new thing" that can be done through a special button combination, allowing you to use it with certain games you wouldn't normally be able to. Of course, the perfect game to test this out is the all-star Switch fighter, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

So, set 15 minutes aside to watch a barefoot Alex try and play Ultimate with a D-Pad controller. For this particular video, he's even gone to the extent of installing a "crotch cam" to help film all of the action.

Would you be game to play Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a control pad? Have you tried out this 8BitDo controller? Leave a comment down below.
