    From the creators of the iCade Arcade cabinet for iPad we are getting this cute retro-wireless controller

    Retro-fans, this is for just you.

    The team behind the iCade arcade cabinet has presented today a cute retro-inspired Bluetooth controller for iOS devices.
    The name: 8-bitty and its shape takes us to back to the old NES controller era from the 80's.

    The prototype showed recently was not the final one and it only features 4 action buttons, but the final production design will be having at least 6.

    It works with 2-AA batteries, and it will be compatible with the same games as the iCade Arcade Cabinet is.

    Estimated release date, is TWO months from now. Suggested retail price 24.99$

    Full press release below:
