If you have just purchased a Nintendo Switch Lite and are looking for a suitable cute controller that suits you, 8BitDo has exactly what you are looking for. Today the company announced the appropriate name 8BitDo Lite, a rectangular game pad that mimics the appearance of the Switch Lite so precisely that you could confuse it with a first-class Nintendo product. It is available in yellow and teal – sorry, gray Switch Lite owners – and has largely the same buttons and functionality as the built-in controls, except for a few D-pads instead of the joysticks.
Now you may be wondering why you need an extra for a device specially designed for portable gaming. The most likely answer is for playing with multiple players; if you want to participate in a few improvised games from Mario Kart 8, you need a few handy controllers. And these are at least small enough to throw in a small bag. That may be a very specific use case, but the good thing is that, like most 8BitDo products, the new controller works with a range of hardware that goes beyond the Switch Lite, but also supports Windows, Mac and Android.
The 8BitDo Lite will ship from October 30 and costs $ 24.99. You can order in advance on Amazon now.
