If you managed to get your hands on a TurboGrafx-16 Mini, you might be on the lookout for a wireless controller option: and as per usual, 8BitDo has just the thing. Today, the company revealed a new wireless gamepad designed to work with the miniature retro console. It comes in three different color schemes — modeled after the original TurboGrafx-16 and its European and Japanese counterparts — has a built-in home button, and an estimated 20 hours of battery life.

If 8BitDo sounds familiar, it’s because the company has made a name for itself releasing a huge range of solid aftermarket controllers, particularly in the retro space. That includes wireless options for other mini consoles and even gamepads small enough to fit on your keychain. The TurboGrafx-16 Mini, meanwhile, is technically available now, though shipments have been delayed due to the pandemic.

The new wireless TurboGrafx are available for $24.99 and are expected to start shipping on May 20th.
