Retro-Bit’s final retail version of the Origin 8 wireless controller for NES and USB-equipped devices is finally in our studio to check out! I have had the privilege of getting to preview an earlier sample and found it to be a great input device for NES titles on real hardware and emulation. For Switch owners the Origin 8 doubles as an excellent controller for the NES, GameBoy, and GameBoy Advance NSO apps! Check out my previous coverage to get an idea of what the Origin 8 can do!
