The 8-bit-do pads have a mode select when you turn them on with the start button. 

 

Start only - Android mode

Start + X - Windows x-input

Start + A - Mac

Start + Y - Switch

 

The SNES pad without analogs is pure class, I've had it for six months and use it all the time. Feels like the real thing. The Switch firmware has just elevated it further for me.  And, they even do a SNES Bluetooth adaptor for using it with your old console. Most compatible pad I've ever owned!

 

That's incredible. I'm glad it feels like a real one, the D-Pad and buttons on my classic controller are wonderful. Shame there's no MFI iOS support!

It works with iOS. MFI is just for lightning connectors - generic bluetooth controllers work fine. It also works with the Wii, Wii U and Retron 5.

The previous firmware had an iCade mode which presumably worked with iOS, but they removed it to make room for the Switch firmware. It's still available as a legacy download if you want to try it though.

New Nintendo Switch UE4 Development Board

A new Nintendo Switch discussion board, mentioned above, is now available for approved developers in the UE4 Forums. Please keep Nintendo Switch development-based discussions within this private section of the forums. Feel free to report any technical issues you may encounter here in order to benefit from community-based support.

 

I'd love to be able to read that board....

I keep on thinking it'll be part of the paid online service where you'll get a library of games to play with, then I remember what they mentioned when they announced the amazing benefits you'll get with their paid online offering i.e. One game per month. 

 

I don't think VC is coming.

Seems like the public push is now fully on from Nintendo - they have Unreal where they want it, and now:

 

 

Let's hope this is the beginning of the end of all those folks who say they are trying to get content on the platform, but can't get access...

And for Samsung TV owners who are having problems with the Switch HDMI hand-shake thing:

"Samsung has been following the comments on our Community Thread and we will be issuing a Firmware update early this summer that will address this behavior and provide the level of convenience that was intended."

Nintendo are doing everything right so far. 

 

Hopefully this means they will announce the Virtual Console along with some old GameCube favourites. They are sitting on a goldmine. Give me portable F-Zero, Sunshine and Eternal Darkness plz. 

 

Or...

 

They will can it entirely. Thus restoring the balance. Because, Nintendo.

I LOVE my Switch!!! Been playing Mario Kart 8, and my next game will likely be Arms. Who else here is getting that? 

 

Excellent! ...and yes! I shall be getting Arms next month and I'd say a lot of people on here will be too! :D

Wasn't Oceanhorn an Apple TV game initially?

 

Joy-con update - Day 28: Nintendo are still waiting for Parcelfarce to complete their second investigation into what happened to my parcel.  They cannot do anything until Parcelfarce get back to them at which point if it is confirmed as lost they'll "look at sorting out a replacement".  <_<
