A New Nintendo 64 Controller Has Been Successfully Crowdfunded

It has a sleek modern redesign too.

If you've been longing for a return of a freshly remodeled Nintendo 64 controller without that annoying stick-thing in the middle, then this newly funded Kickstarter has your back.

To the tune of more than doubling its mere $13,000 goal, slick and modern-designed N64 controllers are now going to be made by the company Retro Fighters thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign. The controllers have been ergonomically redesigned to be more "Next-Gen." (Hence the name, "Next Gen N64 Controller). The controllers will be compatible with memory cards and Rumble Paks, adding to their N64 legitimacy.

At the time of this writing, the Kickstarter has attained $50,011 in funding. The controllers themselves are relatively cheap, costing only $20 each at their tier. If backers want their name in the instruction manual, it'll be a slightly steeper $45.
