Who doesn’t love some retro Nintendo gear? While original NES consoles are still available online, capturing the true essence of 1980’s gaming is largely a hit or miss experience for collectors today. Leave it to 8Bitdo, connoisseurs of replica Nintendo gear, to release the perfect Bluetooth speaker for 2D gaming fans.
Basically everything about the 8Bitdo Retro Cube Speaker is right on-point. We have full details below on how you can score one for yourself.
The layout is pretty straight forward: a white cube that has protruding red speakers (reminiscent of A/B buttons) on each side with a d-pad controller on top. Each directional arrow represents a different function of the Retro Cube. Up powers the system on, right and left control the volume, while the down arrow handles play/pause.
On the back you’ll find a microUSB charging port, 3.5mm auxiliary input, and indicators for charging and wireless connectivity. Predictably, the speaker uses Bluetooth 4.0 for wireless streaming. There is also a bass reflex system that “helps increase the sound quality when music reaches low frequencies.” Naturally, it also has built-in speakerphone capabilities.
The great news is that 8Bitdo’s awesome Nintendo reproduction is available for purchase today. Listings have started to pop-up at online retailers like Amazon. For $34.99 you can snatch one of these for your desks, bringing a little more joy to your daily life. Be sure to check out the rest of the 8Bitdo Nintendo accessories, like the NES30 Wireless Bluetooth Gamepad for iOS and Android devices plus Mac/PC.
