Retro-Bit Reveal Officially Licensed Larger 6 Button Mega Drive Controllers in 3 Button Form Factor

Retro-Bit Gaming have revealed that they are officially working with SEGA on a new Mega Drive controller shaped like the original 3 button Mega Drive controller but now with 6 button functionality.

While there is currently no word on a release date and only a single production mock-up image, Retro-Bit have promised the controller will be sold in original port, USB wired, and 2.4 GHz wireless (with USB-C) variants and more details are coming soon. This should be a great alternative for those looking for a bluetooth Mega Drive controller for the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack which adds a selection of Mega Drive games to the service. Japan are getting an official bluetooth 6 button Mega Drive controller for the Switch, but unfortunately Western Mega Drive fans have to settle with a 3 button pad if they buy from Nintendo directly.

Retro-Bit Gaming are no stranger to SEGA controllers and have developed and released a line of Mega Drive and SEGA Saturn controllers in the past.
