It's a Bluetooth controller receiver for your NES, and yes, it's exactly as awesome as it sounds! While the most common purpose is to use your 8bitdo NES30 and SNES30 wireless controllers with your NES, it also works with many other Bluetooth controllers. This includes the Playstation 3, Playstation 4, Wiimote, Wii U Pro, Switch Joycon, and Switch Pro controllers. In a pinch, you can also connect it to a computer over USB and use it as a bluetooth dongle to play games on your PC or Mac.
For the best experience, be sure to grab the latest firmware update from 8bitdo (click "Firmware" near the top of the page) before use. You may need to install the latest firmware update for certain wireless controllers to be supported.
