Video game peripheral manufacturer Hyperkin has revealed that it will be releasing a "pro-style" wireless controller for use with your beloved Nintendo 64.
Named the 'Admiral', this controller uses a Bluetooth dongle to wirelessly connect to your console. As you can immediately tell, the design sacrifices the famous trident shape of the official N64 controller, instead replacing it with a "more traditional" design which features a setup much more in line with modern pads.
Hyperkin tells us that the controller's design is the preferred choice for high-performance competition, with fan-favourite games like Super Smash Bros., GoldenEye 007, and Mario Kart 64 being referenced as potential titles which could benefit from its layout. We've included the product's feature list below, as well as images of the controller itself and the Bluetooth dongle which plugs into your console.
• Wireless up to 30 ft. via included Bluetooth dongle
• Memory card inside dongle allows you to back up and transfer memory pack save data
• Built-in lithium-ion battery lasts for 6 hours and recharges via included Micro USB cable
• Compatible with all N64 models, as well as PC, Mac, IOS, and Android via Bluetooth
• Classic grey color
The Admiral is expected to launch in Q1 2019, although no specific release information has been shared just yet.
