Nintendo Switch Update: Classic Gameplay Option Now Available Via Third-Party Manufacturer 8Bitdo

Nintendo Switch fans looking for a more classic gaming experience on the hybrid console are in for a treat as the new classic controllers are introduced by a third-party manufacturer 8Bitdo.

According to 8Bitdo, their controllers are now available with a firmware update that makes them fully compatible with Nintendo Switch. New Firmware Update 4.0 is now available for the 8Bitdo controllers and they are now fully compatible with the console. However, the support for Amiibo Scanning, 6-axis Motion control, and HD Rumble is not added to the controllers.

This simply means that some of the games will not be playable with the newly updated 8Bitdo controllers. The controllers will fully support older titles that are currently available to play on Nintendo Switch.

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is about to release on Nintendo Switch. It’s one of the popular classic titles that players will be able to enjoy on Nintendo Switch with 8Bitdo controllers.
