Head below to learn more about our Nintendo N64 Controller giveaway and how you can win.
Win the Nintendo N64 Controller in our giveaway!
Launching back in October, Nintendo introduced a new tier in its Switch Online subscription that finally included N64 and SEGA games. While users haven’t been thrilled about the up charge, the far more exciting aspect of the announcement was the unveil of a refreshed N64 Controller to go with your Switch.
Sporting the retro design you’d expect, there’s the signature three-pronged form-factor which pairs with a D-Pad on the left, six buttons on the right, and a joystick right in the middle. It pairs to your Switch in much the same way that a standard Joy-Con would, just without the more modern hybrid functionality. You can also use this with a Mac, PC, or Raspberry Pi over Bluetooth for playing classic games that aren’t in the NSO library. Nintendo completes the package with a USB-C charging port, as well.
While it had launched for $49.99, stock has been virtually impossible to find since selling out twice already. Nintendo has already noted that these won’t be back until sometime in 2022, unfortunately meaning there won’t be a restock right before the big day at the end of the month, sans a Christmas miracle that is.
