Bluetooth GBA TX Cart (Pre-order)

$89.00 USD

This Bluetooth GBA TX cart allows you to use your GBA as a wireless controller on any device that the Zero 2 is supported on such as the Switch. If you are skilled, you may consider the BYO chip option where you supply and solder your own Zero 2 main chip. Includes a clear reproduction GBA cart shell (separately).

You can map L Trig/RTrig/B/A to X/Y buttons or a combo of L Trig+B/L Trig+A/R Trig+B/R Trig+A to X/Y buttons, see the video below. You can only connect to one device at a time.

Works on the GBA, SP, DS/DS Lite (no X/Y button support), GB Micro and the Analogue Pocket.

Based on the Zero 2, should work with the Switch (1.0.0+), Switch Lite (v9.0.0+), Windows 10, macOS (10.10+), Android (9.0+) and Raspberry Pi (Bluetooth v2.0+) and 8BitDo retro receivers.
