Nostalgia Reimagined: The New 8BitDo Keyboard Inspired by Commodore 64

8BitDo has just thrown back to the 80s with its newest addition to the Retro Mechanical Keyboard series, a Commodore 64 edition that marries nostalgia with modern functionality. Priced at $109.99, this keyboard is not just a looker but also packs the punch of contemporary mechanical keyboards, available for preorder with shipping set for May 26th. Its design captures the essence of the Commodore 64, featuring chunky brown keycaps and the iconic rainbow logo, making it a piece of modern tech dressed in vintage clothes.

While it mirrors the aesthetic of its 1980s muse, the keyboard is equipped with today's tech standards like clicky Kailh Box White V2 switches that are hot-swappable, offering customization for those who prefer a quieter typing experience. Connectivity is versatile, with options including USB, Bluetooth, and a 2.4GHz USB dongle. Not forgetting the handy volume dial for easy audio control, the keyboard blends the old with the new seamlessly.


  • Keycaps: ABS plastic, double-shot legends
  • Switches: Clicky Kailh Box White V2, hot-swappable
  • Connectivity: USB, Bluetooth, 2.4GHz USB dongle
  • Additional Features: Programmable "Super Buttons" and "Super Stick", tenkeyless form factor, built-in volume dial, no RGB lighting

The keyboard's design is a nod to the original Commodore 64's unique charm but with a modern twist, such as the programmable "Super Buttons" reminiscent of the NES controller's A and B buttons, now accompanied by a "Super Stick." Its tenkeyless design keeps the layout traditional, sans the numpad, catering to the minimalist aesthetic without the distraction of RGB lighting. This blend of retro style and modern features makes the 8BitDo Commodore 64 edition keyboard a must-have for enthusiasts of both eras.
