"The Retro Fighters controller for N64 is a modern take on the N64 controller. We wanted to remake the N64 controller with next generation features and designs!"

It just passed funding and looks pretty interesting. I'm skeptical of the build quality and the stick functionality and durability if it's only $20 but we'll see how it goes! What do you guys think?

Honestly, it's not even for the N64. The main use is for PC emulators and such. Correct?
It's soley for the N64 as there's no USB connection.

Here's link to the Retro Fighters website. $29.99 retail price, which seems inviting. States a release date of March 2018, so not much longer....

. . . and here is a glowing review from RGT85:

The time stamp in your url seemed to mess up the embed code. :o

Saw this in our community Discord and thought interesting to share here, for anyone who considers buying this controller for speedrunning (in this case OoT, but goes for SM64 as well):

Retro Fighters Brawler64 Controller
Initial Impressions: Not suitable for speedrunning. Analog stick is no where near precise as N64 or GC. ESS position is very narrow, compared to my experience on the N64 w/ GC controller. Z triggers have no tactile feel but L, R, A, B, Start and C buttons are nice. The analog stick doesn't have enough sensitivity on some direction inputs (ie: up + slight right or up + slight left yields a full up input). Occasionally 45 up left or 45 up right yields full left or right input. Over all decent for casual gaming. If you're looking to move to something other then N64 go to GC and avoid this controller.
How is the Horipad with speedrunning?
