    Dang double posts..pressed the reply button too many times......anyway, This controller looks cool. I can't wait to see the review.

    And. regarding the A-power controller, it works on PC and Switch...but no android. I really want to know if this one DOES work on android.

    America's heart, she's a beaut.
    Was there some kinda of licensing issue with the SNES look on the controllers? 'Cause girl, these look hideous. =/
    Also, the OG SN30 Pro works wonders on Mario Marker, that D-Pad is noice!

    I have the SN-30 and it's pretty much perfection. But the ability to remap buttons...

    The sn30 and SN30 Pro do.. So I'd assume this one would. They even have a clip you can buy for the controllers to hold your phone.

    Love my SF30Pro, but the Pro+ doesn't seem like a necessary upgrade. The handles I'm sure are nice for ergonomics, but a big part of the reason I like the controller is how nostalgic it feels to hold.

    Also, that hideous monstrosity doesn't look like a SNES gamepad to me.

    It supports both wireless and wired connection. if you prefer a lag free experience then you can connect your ds4 using micro usb cable and its lag free. there is normal bluetooth controller lag on wireless connection. same as ps4. the wired connection is a plus for mayflash. there is also support for button swamp, gyro controls using sixaxis and multiple vibration levels. imagine using a razer raiju or in my case a razer sabertooth on it (it supports xbox one and 360 controller too). it's perfect. also it fits perfectly inside switch dock that makes it invisible.

    Ugh just bought an SN 30 pro too... which is pretty good, but this one fixes the following issues:

    - handles to actually take advantage of the large thumbsticks in comfort
    - handles to better balance the weight when using a cell phone clip
    - a genesis-style color option

    for about the same price. Making me really regret my purchase there.

    The controller looks good. Too bad I already have a pro controller. Might pick one up when the price drop.

    I like the nostalgia feel as well. Works great with emulators and 2D games. Would just like the handles because my hands can't wrap around the SN30pro for as long as they could when I was young and playing the SNES. :rofl2:

    Look good. But I prefer PS4 controller for to play any PC games, games on any emulators on computer, and Switch games. But I don't have Nintendo Switch system, I still hold for Switch Pro or Switch 2 in near future.

    I still have two 8BitDo adapters for PC, Mac, Switch, Pi, Android, etc.

    But I have problems with Dolphin emulator don't let me to set buttons by PS4 controller use with 8BitDo. I would need to buy Mayflash Magic NS adapter to do more test to see if work or not. Have to wait for on sale then I can buy one or two to try out.

    Well both the OP and the linked article say it does so I guess so?

    My interest is in how powerful the control mapping is in Switch mode. It's a fringe use case but if you could map an analogue stick axis to one of the triggers that would allow you to create a nice conventional analogue acceleration setup for Virtua Racing.
