A new image of the upcoming Switch N64 wireless pad shows that it has some extra buttons on the top.

As spotted by our pals over at VGC, there are ZR, Home and Share buttons on the top of the device, alongside a USB-C charting port and a sync button. There are also four LED lights, as is the norm with Switch controllers.

The Mega Drive / Genesis controller also has extra buttons on the top, as you can see in the tweet below. There’s also a ‘Mode’ button, which is curious, as this was only included on the 6-button Mega Drive controller back in the day, and allowed players to switch between 3 and 6 button modes for those titles which encountered issues with the latter.

It was confirmed this week that N64 games are coming to Nintendo Switch Online, along with Mega Drive / Genesis games. It was also reported that in Europe, some of the N64 games will run at 50Hz rather than 60Hz.
