8Bitdo just launched preorders for a new version of its excellent Ultimate controller, the Ultimate C. The 8BitDo Ultimate C is a simpler and more affordable model than the original 8BitDo Ultimate (which happens to be one of our favorite third-party controllers for PC and Nintendo Switch, by the way), and it comes in two versions: a wireless model for $30 and a wired model for $20. Both Ultimate C controllers are available for preorder at Amazon in either lilac purple or field green color options.

The Ultimate C is quite a bit cheaper than the 8BitDo Ultimate’s $70 Bluetooth and $50 2.4GHz models, but the lower price points come with a few tradeoffs. Most importantly, the Ultimate C does not support layout customization in 8BitDo’s Ultimate Software and lacks the extra back paddles of the 8BitDo Ultimate. The wireless version also does not ship with the charging dock–though you can still easily charge the Ultimate C with a USB C cable.
