The N64 is a great console with an awesome library of games, but the controller did leave a bit to be desired. The analog stick, memory card, and rumble functions were all fantastic, but the actual design of the controller was a bit clunky with it’s 3 prong design. Retro Fighters is looking to change that and is bringing a next gen style controller into the world of the N64.
The controller is aptly called the Next Gen N64 Controller. It has a much sleeker styling and removes the middle prong, and positions the “Z” trigger onto the back of the controller behind the L and R triggers. Improved C-Button size has also been done. The campaign is currently on Kickstarter and has hit over 50% of it’s goal in just 1 day. You can get a controller for just $20 as well, so if you are a diehard N64 fan, you should check out this project!
