As mentioned above, the Super Converter will allow use of PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Switch controllers. In addition to this, fight sticks are also compatible with the DC/SS Super Converter. Wireless connection is also supported, so you can play the Dreamcast and Saturn from the comfort of your couch without getting tangled up in cords. The converter comes bundled with a micro-USB and the converter itself. The firmware for the converter can be updated via PCs.

The Super Converter also supports button re-assignment, so you can modify your configuration for individual controllers. Additionally, you will also be able to set your own rapid fire settings with the converter. This could make the DC/SS Super Converter invaluable when playing shoot’em ups on the Sega Dreamcast or Sega Saturn. However, please keep in mind that the converter will not support all models of PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch controllers.

The DC/SS Super Converter will launch on July 16, 2020 in Japan.
