Global distributor Innex announced a full line of Hypermode controllers that are designed by Retro Bit. Controllers will be released for Nintendo 64, NES, SNES and Sega Genesis.

Innex will release the N64 controllers this summer while controllers for the other systems will see releases this fall.

The controllers will feature wireless capabilities enabling gamers to play games on the classic consoles without the use of a cord for the first time. Furthermore, they will include trigger buttons as well as turbo and auto-fire settings.

To emulate the look of the original controllers for their corresponding systems, the Retro Bit controllers will be made to look very similar in look and design. They will even feature a classic control layout that resembles the original manufacturer designs.

The NES, SNES and Genesis controllers will also include built-in rechargeable batteries. They will also have the ability to connect to the PC and Mac through a USB connection. These features will not be present in the N64 controller as it will require three AAA batteries in order to make use of its wireless feature.

Innex will release a shared version of the controller for NES and SNES. Each controller will be priced at $29.99.

Retro Bit is a company specializing in making third party products and accessories involving classic gaming. They have become well known for plug-and-play systems which come with a variety of classic games.

“We are extremely fortunate to be the exclusive distributor of the Retro Bit brand of third-party video game products,” exclaimed Titi Ngoy, the president of Innex. “Retro Bit has played a huge role in rejuvenating public interest in retro games and they continue to develop new and exciting accessories that will further the market demand for nostalgia gaming.”

Though not yet released, the controllers will be showcased at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles which will run from June 11 to 13. Attendees will be able to see the controllers firsthand alongside other products distributed by Innex.
