At Microsoft‘s E3 press conference last month, the company unveiled Rare Replay, a collection featuring 30 classic games by Rare. Although it’s awesome we’re getting a massive Rare collection, it just wouldn’t feel right playing Banjo-Kazooie without a Nintendo 64 controller.

Well, the dream fulfillers at Hyperkin have somehow made a Nintendo 64 controller work on an Xbox One.

We reached out to Chris Gallizzi from Hyperkin to ask him if this concept would ever reach the light of day, and he told us that it would need to be licensed by Microsoft. Considering the controller only has one analog stick, it’s pretty unlikely Microsoft would approve.

Either way, it’s still a pretty cool concept.
