Update #3 [Thu 30th Jun, 2022 03:55 BST]: Earlier today Nintendo made the N64 wireless controllers for Switch available via the My Nintendo Store. There was a queue, but the controller still sold out quickly. Did you get one this time round? Let us know.

Update #2 [Thu 16th Jun, 2022 01:45 BST]: Nintendo had yet another round of N64 controller restocks in the US today. Unfortunately, the conditions on the official website weren't the best with heavy traffic. The controllers also sold out quite fast once again. Were you able to get one this time? Let us know in the comments.

Update [Wed 1st Jun, 2022 02:30 BST]: Nintendo today had another round of N64 controller restocks on the My Nintendo Store in the US. It seems they sold out quite quickly once again (via Polygon). Were you able to secure one?

Original article [Fri 20th May, 2022 01:30 BST]: Well, Nintendo said more Nintendo 64 controllers would be made available in North America at some point in 2022, and it seems we've just had our first surprise restock of the year on the My Nintendo Store.

Although this is an exclusive offer to Switch Online members, it seems the stock sold out almost immediately. Users are able to purchase a maximum of four controllers, priced at $49.99 USD each.

Even if you missed out on this offer, you may still want to log in and have a look, just to see what it says on your end, as people seem to be having mixed results with the product's availability. Although this item appears to have now "sold out" once again, the website asks users to "please check back soon" for any new stock.

For Switch Online members located in Australia, Nintendo will also be offering these controllers from 12pm AEST today (thanks, Vooks.net). Have you been able to secure one of these controllers yet? Leave a comment down below.
