Retro Fighters, a manufacturer of gaming peripherals, has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the new version of the NITENDO64 “Brawler64” style controller for Nintendo Switch / Nintendo Switch Online.
“Brawler64” appeared as a compatible controller for NINTENDO64, then released a USB version and a wireless version that can be used with Nintendo Switch and PC/Mac. The design retains the feel of the original NINTENDO64 controller, while incorporating the shape of a modern general controller. The new version that appears this time is tailor-made for Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Online and can be easily connected. It also adds new buttons such as the screenshot button and the “-” home button. In addition, it is said that there is also a “swap” button that allows you to switch between the Nintendo Switch Online button layout and the conventional Switch Pro controller button layout. Other features include low latency with the latest Bluetooth technology, dual vibration feedback, and a built-in rechargeable battery that works for over 10 hours on a single charge. This controller can also be used on a PC (connected with the included USB-C cable). The total amount of supporters’ pledges has already exceeded the target amount of $10,000, and the stretch goal has added a motion control function ($10,000) and set a special gold version ($20,000) . Production will begin in November 2022 and will be delivered to fans around February 2023.
