We've seen lots of third party controllers pop up for retro systems over the years, including the excellent Hyperkin Admiral for the N64, but we could always use another one, couldn't we?
Retro Fighters currently has a Kickstarter on the go which aims to bring a Next Generation Wireless Brawler64 controller into the hands of eager retro gamers. We took a look at their wired Brawler64 controller last year and found it to be rather good.
At the time of writing with 28 days left to go, it's smashed its humble £15,689 goal with 877 backers pledging £45,967. For as little as $29 you could get one of these lovely controllers when they've been manufactured, with options to pledge more and get up to four in one bundle:
Here's a bit more about this Brawler64 from Retro Fighters:
