With an oh-so-familiar aesthetic but smartly updated design, 8Bitdo's NES30 Pro GamePad is the perfect blend of retro and modern gaming controller.

Adding dual joysticks to the iconic red buttons and black D-pad you know and love, this multi-talented gadget also packs four L and R buttons on the front, along with USB connectivity (for if/when its 480mAh battery runs out). Oh yeah, and it has a Crissaegrim-style "breathing light," which is always nice.

But what makes this Bluetooth controller extra awesome is its wealth of compatibility. It can not only be programmed to do mobile touchscreen gaming on both Android and iOS, but also works with Macs (multiplayer) and PCs. And because its firmware can be upgraded to work with a variety of emulators, it plays nicely with the likes of Wii (up to four at once).
