Their modern controllers for vintage game consoles brings an amazing update to how we play!
No sooner had my Retro Fighters N64 controller appeared... I discover they've been hard at work on a modernized Dreamcast controller. They just rolled out their latest Kickstarter campaign and it's already funded! Expect a new way to interact with your favorite Dreamcast games.

I own their modernized controllers for the NES and N64. Both are rugged, well-built controllers than enable me to play longer and alter the way I want to play individual games. The ergonomics alone are impressive when I think back on all the various third-party controllers I've tried over the years. I'd jump on any controller they develop!

Their attention to detail often takes a small facet and makes it better. For example,s the controller cord now comes off the top of the controller. It's the little things that add up to a big win! Check out their Next Gen Dreamcast Controller Kickstarter campaign for all the details. See if this modern ergonomic controller is right for you.

From the Retro Fighters Next Gen Dreamcast Controller Kickstarter:
We wanted to make a new ergonomic controller for one of our favorite consoles of all time, the Sega Dreamcast! We changed some things to make the Dreamcast controller more ergonomic and comfortable in design. The controller features a more modern two-handle grip.

The shape of the controller is very comfortable and fits naturally in both hands with easy access to all the buttons. We added NEW additional shoulder buttons (perfect for fighting games) and triggers, so you can adapt controls according to the game you are playing. Very responsive and comfortable larger sized D-pad. We also added an ultra fast Turbo function to help get you to the next level!

Full functionality of the Visual Memory Units (VMUs) and Vibration Packs (Jump Packs).
