The SNES style controller that 8Bitdo makes is the best SNES replica controller that I’ve ever used. This controller is great for playing most 2D games, but there are some types of 2D games such as fighters and shoot ‘em ups that the Sega Saturn controller was just the perfect controller for and there are currently no good Saturn replica controllers on the market. If 8Bitdo can make a Sega Saturn style controller as well as they made the SNES one then 8Bitdo would have the best controllers for all 2D games.


Are there any plans at the moment for a Sega Saturn style controller from 8Bitdo?

+1. Either Genesis or Saturn (guess Saturn makes more sense), I'd totally buy them.
I registered just to ask for Sega-themed controllers too, hahah.

Would be awesome if we get a Six Button (Sega) Bluetooth Controller cause there were so many PC Fighting Games now out and still no good controller for them. Also playing Sega Genesis (some games) on Stream is also not so good without the original button Layout.

Now there is no such plan, but does not exclude that there would be.

Registered and came here specifically to say that I would also like a Saturn-like 8bitdo controller. The Official USB SLS Controllers came out in 2004 and people still look for them as the "ideal" gamepad for PC. The 6 face button layout is unique to it, it's extremely compatible with Genesis, Saturn and Fighting games and every attempt at making one is terrible, from the knock off chinese ones to the official "fighting pad" by MadCatz made for Super Street Fighter IV.

A Saturn-based 8bitdo controller would fulfill all of those markets. And I would love one too!

A Saturn controller would be a day 1 purchase from me, just like your Retro Receivers were! I already own 4 different controllers from you guys, and your build quality is second to none.

Please consider it as well as wireless receivers for the Genesis and Snes!  You guys practically have this market to yourselves with a huge head start on anyone else.

I agree.  The Sega Saturn controller (The Model 2 version in North America) is the final evolution of the Sega Genesis controller.

In fact, I feel there is no point in making a Sega Genesis controller when the Sega Saturn controller design is superior in every way.

i won't buy even though 8bitdo make sega style controller if they support like this. they are good at start but not last. there is lot of bugs and android m and n is comming but they don't show any plan for that. this is not a kickstarter. we are not a 'beta tester'. don't ignore bug reporting and fix your controller complete first.
