As a right-handed gamer, I’ve never experienced the perils of being a lefty and attempting to play NES.

In an effort to make life easier for lefties, the Goofy Foot NES controller features reversed A+B buttons, as well as a reversed directional pad.

Goofy foot is commonly used as a skateboarding or snowboarding term, and the controller aims to level the playing field even though many people are probably used to the classic controller at this point.

If you think being terrible at gaming was a product of the controller and not your own ability, feel free to donate to the Goofy Foot controller Kickstarter campaign.

Only kind of kidding…
