Hyperkin has announced plans to release the Admiral, a wireless Bluetooth controller for the Nintendo 64.

The peripheral manufacturer already produces wired controllers, replacement cables and memory paks for the classic console, but, as Neowin reports, this “pro-style” alternative swaps out the original three-pronged design for something that more closely resembles a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller.

Thanks to a Bluetooth dongle, you can use the Admiral wirelessly from a distance of up to 30 feet. And, not only is it compatible with PC, Mac, iOS and Android as well, it has a built-in rechargeable lithium-ion battery that will last up to six hours.

There is also a memory card inside that dongle that will let you back up and transfer any save data, for those worried any progress in games that they have sunk long hours into.

The Admiral wireless Bluetooth controller for Nintendo 64 will release in Q1 2019.
