Retro-Bit Wireless Hypermode N64 Controller: Sit Back and Enjoy the Classics

by Lambert Varias

Corded controllers led to one of the iconic images in many homes in the 80s and 90s: kids sitting on the floor, controller in hand and looking up at their TV. But if you’re TV is too big to view up close and your ass is too lazy to get off the couch, keep an eye on Retro-Bit’s Wireless Hypermode retro controllers. First up is the wireless controller for the N64.

Richard Mitchell of Joystiq was able to try a test unit of the controller at E3. Although he admits that he only tested it for less than 5 minutes, Mitchell says that the controller’s didn’t seem too bad, although it’s not quite as good as the official controller. As you can see in the images the controller also has Auto and Turbo modes, while the receiver has a slot for memory cards and Rumble Paks.

The Retro-Bit Wireless Hypermode N64 controller should go on sale this summer for $30 (USD), while wireless versions of the SEGA Genesis, NES and SNES controllers will follow this fall.
