Diplodocus Games has shared some exciting news on social media - revealing a pre-release patch for Corn Kidz 64 on the Switch will add support for Switch Online Nintendo 64 wireless controllers.

To activate "trident controls", you'll need to press R on the title screen. It's also been confirmed this same feature is coming to Super Kiwi 64. Corn Kidz 64 is out next week for the eShop on 19th April 2024.

A pre release patch has just been approved so I can now confirm that Corn Kidz 64 will support Nintendo 64 controllers with a unique control scheme from its launch next Friday. If you have a Nintendo Online N64 controller, use "trident controls" by pressing R on the title screen.

Also, the same feature is planned for Super Kiwi 64, but it will take a few weeks until it will be added to the Switch version of Super Kiwi 64.
