The folks at 8BitDo are back at it: the noted peripheral makers are releasing a very nice pair of mechanical keyboards for your PC, each styled after a Nintendo 8-bit console of yore. Listed as the N Edition and the Fami Edition, both offer identical specs with differing color schemes: one based on the NES and one based on the Famicom.



Both can connect to Windows and Android either with a USB-C connector or Bluetooth, with dongle included. You can map micros to each keyboard with 8BitDo’s Ultimate V2 Software and use the knobs in the upper left to adjust volume and control playback, and the tenkeyless layout makes it a great option for those who prefer (or need) smaller keyboards. It even comes with a pair of comically large red A and B buttons that you can macro as you’d like.

Both keyboard colors are available to preorder on Amazon for $99.99. The keyboards will ship on September 20th of this year.
