Get a close look at the Nintendo 'Ultra 64' prototype controller


Before we got the Nintendo 64, there was the Ultra 64. Nintendo was really close to releasing the Nintendo 64 as the Ultra 64, going so far as having images published in magazines and talking about the name left and right. Then, shortly before launch, Nintendo got gold feet and changed the name from Ultra to Nintendo.

Back when Nintendo was running with the Ultra 64, they were also working with a slightly different controller. While most of the features are the same as what we got in the Nintendo 64, there are a couple notable differences. Check out the video above to see what unique features the Ultra 64 controller had, and how close we came to getting something different.
