N64 Controllers Restock for Switch Online + Expansion Pack Spotted: Sold Out in 2 Seconds?

A recent N64 controller restock has been spotted online, which lasted for just two seconds. The controller is said to help improve the Switch Online + Expansion Pack service.

Nintendo 64 Controllers Available in the US for Switch Online Members

According to the story by Nintendo Life, there was a surprise restock for the new Nintendo 64 controllers in the US for members of Switch Online. The sad thing about the restock is that it did not last long at all and was reportedly sold out in record time.

The fast restock depletion was spotted in a reply on the Nintendo Switch subreddit, where a user shared how the stock was gone in just about two seconds. The user noted that it is important to keep an eye open for any surprise drops that could happen.

N64 Controller Restock was Similar to the PS5 and Xbox Series X Situation

Aside from the N64 controller restock, there has also been restocking of the Sega Genesis three-button controllers in US stores. Just like with the other controllers, however, buyers still need to be part of the Switch Online in order to make a purchase.

The situation for the N64 controller restock is similar to that of other consoles that have struggled when it comes to supply. Despite more than a year since their launch, the PS5 restock, and the Xbox Series X restock situation has still not yet settled.

Nintendo 64 Controllers Sold Out Almost Immediately When Made Available Online

Due to the limited supply and countless scalpers, buyers have not been able to purchase the console at its supposed price. Although the Nintendo Switch itself has not suffered when it comes to supply problems, the N64 controller has suffered greatly.

The trend of bringing back retro games and style has boosted the popularity of the N64 controller to the point that now, with the limited supply available, the controllers sell out almost immediately after they are posted online.

YouTube Video Shows Different Nintendo 64 Games

A video of the Nintendo 64 controller was uploaded to YouTube to show players how the gaming experience might be improved with the classic controller. While it is just an accessory, the N64 itself is an iconic retro piece in Nintendo history.

What Gamers Might be Able to Expect from the Switch Online + Expansion Pack Service

As per the video, more Nintendo 64 games are on the way to help relieve the classic feeling of what video games were back in the day. With that, although gamers can use the regular Switch Joy-Cons to play them, having the N64 will give a better retro experience.

The N64 controller is massive in comparison to the Joy-Cons, which also adds to its appeal when playing classic games. Players will be able to play titles like the classic “Mario Cart,” “Pokemon Stadium,” “1080 Snowboarding,” and much more.
