Along with a Nintendo Online ‘Expansion Pack’ that includes Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis titles, Nintendo is releasing official Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis controllers for the console.
As someone who grew up with both consoles, I’m pretty hyped to revisit titles like Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Golden Axe and more with both system’s original gamepads.
