I forgot to mention that as a backer I did get an email from them saying that at least the first batch will not be compatible with the Transfer Pak. There was an unforeseen glitch with it but they wanted to make sure production would not be delayed too much.

Since a good chunk of the target audience is mainly focused on Smash Bros. this shouldn't be an issue but just a heads up.

Only site that has pre-orders still available is in Switzerland, and it works out to be US$85 to buy one and ship to Australia. Will pass for now. Hopefully they can get some units out there, fix the odd bug with them and get a retailer closer to me. Some proper reviews will come out and then we'll see about buying one or more.

EDIT: I'll just stick with V3 Hyperkin joystick replacements until then I think.

I am a supporter of this Kickstarter and look forward to getting this modern version controller. My main reason is for my eight year old son. I have a N64 and have tried to get my son to play some games with me and he genuinely seems interested but he cannot get past the N64 controller. It just doesn't work for him as he is a modern gamer. He grew up with Xbox 360 and Xbox One as well as Nintendo Wii U and we have the Pro Controller for that. I welcome this controller as it will help bring a young modern gamer over to some retro Nintendo without the difficulty he has experienced with the original N64 controllers. So basically the controller is for him. I can't wait for some Duke Nukem 64 death matches!

@deadmoney: As my kids pretty much learned on the Wii, they still ask if they can rotate an N64 controller to steer. :facepalm: Error in parenting right there.

I think I got my announcement that my controller is on the way. Anybody else get a thing from Trent Tribe saying an item is on its way?

I contacted Retro Fighters today asking if they will be making them available in New Zealand.

they came back saying they will be "launching another Kickstarter in about 2 weeks time on the transparent colours, we will offer international shipping through Kickstarter soon"

you can sign up for the newsletter on the website and they will let you know when the Kickstarter is live.

FYI :yeah:

This is exactly how I feel. I don't really need another N64 controller but I might get one of the Retro Fighters units if they're a quality product.
