The PCBs are already being manufactured and are expected to complete by mid-October.
The shell mold is also being manufactured. We expect samples in about 3 weeks, and we're still on schedule for an end of October delivery to us.
The allocated first batch stock is now sold out. Thank you to everyone who pre-ordered our adapter!
Another batch will follow shortly after the mold samples are received. Please sign up on this page to receive a notification as soon as we open pre-orders for Round 2!
Important Preorder Information:
The final adapter shell will be injection molded, and not 3D printed as per the photos on this page. We aim to colour-match the grey colour of the N64 controller ports. The photos will be updated as soon as the molded samples are received.
The adapters and shells are in production. Estimated dispatch time for preorders is end of October.
Please note that you can withdraw your preorder at any time before the status of your order changes to "Preparing for Dispatch", for a full refund. Cancellations and changes after this time will not be possible.
