Retro-Bit has announced a new Hall Effect replacement N64 analog stick for original N64 controllers! This new stick takes inspiration from Retro-Bit’s Tribute 64 line and will give N64 fans a relatively low-cost and well-performing option for fixing up damaged controllers. While not a 1:1 match for the original, it should prove itself to the vast majority of N64 fans!
