A -> Y
R1 -> A
X -> L1
Y -> R1
L1 -> X
Don’t feel bad; this also took me a surprising amount of mental calculus ;) This configuration also works perfectly for the Genesis games included in Konami’s recent Contra and Castlevania compilations. Those already allowed for button configuration in-game, but it’s nice to just have a system-level custom controller profile that’s easy to enable/disable.
EDIT: these settings assume that the firmware-level button config on the M30 is set to default. I.e. I haven’t swapped the A/B or X/Y buttons with the controller’s built-in options.


Thank you so much for this! I was trying last night and just could not wrap my head around it.

Woo hoo! Just tested this out; works perfectly with the 8bitdo M30, since the Switch recognizes it as an official Pro Controller. Yup, Sega Genesis Classics just got a WHOLE lot more playable.


I did not grow up with a genesis. I am also a bit lazy. Would you mind sharing what you mapped everything to? I started to mess with it and it blew my feeble mind. Thanks!

Thanks! I need to play with it a bit. Admittedly, I haven’t messed with it too much. I have the 2.4 G version, not the Bluetooth, so I’ll have to see if it works the same.

In case not mentioned, or anyone interested...
I got Sonic Mania and the Genesis Collection. Bought the Retrobit 6 button controller.
It feels amazing. No issues there.
The problem lies with the button mapping. And since you can't fully customize controls in the Genesis Collection, you're stuck with a weird configuration that doesn't feel like a Genesis game anymore..
Buttons are mapped like a Switch.. So in Streets of Rage, you're using A and B for punching and kicking, Y for specials. Can't use Z or C, as they're ZL and ZR, rewind and fast forward. And unfortunately there's not many choices in the emulator for controls, and with the emulator controls being busted, of course in game will be too.
Simpler games I imagine would be fine.. But anything that can use the six buttons, I don't think this is a very viable option as is.
Just a heads up..


I am discovering this as well with the 8bitdo M30. I am having trouble with the Sega Ages, where you can remap the buttons. I can’t even get Lightening Force started. Pressing start takes you to the Emulator menu and I can’t find a button that will actually start the game.

It’s great for Sonic games, I guess.
