Gamepad manufacturer 8Bitdo revealed a cheaper version of your favorite Ultimate Controller today. The new Ultimate C 2.4G Wireless Controller is a $30 wireless accessory in purple or green. It is compatible with Windows, Android, Steam Deck and Raspberry Pi.

As its name suggests, the new gamepad connects wirelessly using an included 2.4GHz USB dongle. 8Bitdo describes it as a “simplified” version of the popular Ultimate controller series, while “offering the same top quality.” As for what “simplified” means, it looks like the company has helped keep production costs down by omitting the charging dock (using wired charging instead) and the profile switch from the more expensive variants. It also doesn’t support the company’s Ultimate Software for customization.

8BitDo says the gamepad can last up to 25 hours of gameplay and fully recharge in two hours. In addition, it supports asymmetric rumble, although vibration feedback only works on Windows. The controller also works in wired mode and is plug-and-play on a PC.

The company expanded into modern console-style controllers last year after making its bones on nostalgic gamepads mimicking classic NES and SNES inputs. The design of the Ultimate line is much closer to today’s Xbox controllers, including asymmetrical stick layouts. The more expensive 2.5GHz version is still available for $50, while the Bluetooth variant costs $70. You can pre-order the new model from Amazon ahead of the planned release date of May 31st.
