It'd be most impressive if they had Transfer Park functionality on the N64 one.

The promised N64 and Genesis controllers can now be purchased from the Nintendo store.

US customers can obtain their N64 controller here or their Genesis controller here. Each controller is $49.99 US.

Although the Genesis controller is a 3-button model, the N64 controller will have built in rumble; foregoing the need for a Rumble Pak.



Boy howdy they cost as much as a 1 year subscription to Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pak!

As a result, I only bought two T-T

Two N64 Controllers that is. As neat as the Geneses controller is I'd be paying a hefty $49.99 USD for something that isn't very functionally different from other standards controllers out there? At that price, and with no real Genesis nostalgia etched into my soul, I would probably be better served buying my first Pro Controller...

The N64 controller essentially has the button layout of a 6 button Genesis controller so I see absolutely no reason to get both.
