Now here’s a look at two impressive wireless controllers from 8bitdo. While 8bitdo’s wireless controllers don’t come with much bells and whistles, both controllers have a rechargeable battery unlike the rest of the other brands. The controllers come in either the purple or rainbow color scheme.

Last but not least is Ortz Gaming’s Turbo Classic Edition controller. Similar to Nyko’s controller, it’s packed in with a Turbo function and has the same button configuration as the original SNES controller. However it’s designed after the European/Japanese SNES controller color scheme, so if you prefer the rainbow colors this may be for you.
