Nintendo lets you the controller layout at N64

Since yesterday we can play with the help of a expansion package for the Nintendo Switch online subscription also selected N64 and Sega Genesis games on the Nintendo Switch. However, the expansion package currently places a bumpy launch, because not everything is always working as it should. This includes, for example, that the key assignment or the controller layout can not be changed in the N64 games. The solution causes a little counter-love and looks more suboptimal.

Some Nintendo 64 titles are on the switch with online subscription almost unplayable, complaints fans

N64 key assignment rather difficult: Who knows the N64 controller knows that he was very unorthodox. But there are also more buttons than on the Switch Pro Controller or the Joy-Cons.

That s why that is unfavorable: Not only for people who are used to the old arrangement of the N64 controller is the problem, but also in terms of barrier and easily accessible games. With regard to accessibility for people with disabilities, remapping of the controller layout is actually the least and simplest what can be done. You ll find more about it here:

More problems: Unfortunately, the button layout of the N64 controller on the switch does not seem to be the only problem that the expansion package for online subscription brings. It probably comes with some players in some games like Zelda Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart 64 or Super Mario 64 too violent input lag. At Mario Kart 64, there is no replacement for storing in the controller pack, partly also make framerates and sound problems. Some fans call the N64 title on the switch therefore unplayable.
