Nintendo 64 Gets Rebuilt as a Tiny Handheld Console


The #Nintendo 64, one of the most beloved consoles, gets rebuilt into a tiny console that is smaller than the original controller.

The record for the world’s smallest #Nintendo 64 has just been broken. The #Nintendo 64 is often modded, whether it be games or the console itself. #And a niche community has been working on creating portable #Nintendo 64 mods over the years, competing to make them smaller and smaller with each iteration. #One modder may have just perfected the mod with his creation, making a #Nintendo 64 mod that is smaller than the original controller.

The physical modding community in gaming is very talented, from creating portable versions of home consoles to turning #Nintendo #GameCubes into powerful PCs. #One specific group has worked on making a portable #Nintendo 64 as small as possible. The most recent was made in 2015. #But #GmanModz seems to have beaten that record with a console that is 23.3% smaller.

#In a recent video, #GmanModz explains all of the details of how he built the world’s smallest #Nintendo 64 portable. #He gives tons of incredible information, including how he uses computer technology to plan his approach, how he uses a 3D printer for some parts, but how he basically does most of the work the “old-fashioned” way by taking apart a #Nintendo 64 and rebuilding it into a portable console. #He also explains a lot of interesting details and specs, including the fact that he made strategic decisions like choosing the tiny #Joycon controllers to save the smallest amount of space, or that the R and Z buttons are both shoulder buttons on the top.

#GmanModz also shows off how the #JoyCon analogs work playing #Turok, and how that actually may perform better than the traditional #Nintendo 64 controller. #Games like #Perfect #Dark (which is finally making a return) were fun in the #Nintendo 64 era, but were perhaps held back a bit thanks to a limited controller, so playing those games with a more modern controller set up is an interesting idea.

#Another enjoyable aspect of the video is simply watching all of the video games being played. The #Nintendo 64 had great games, and the idea of being able to play them on the go is one that sounds fantastic to many. #That could be a part of why the #Nintendo #Switch is having so much success, as #Nintendo on the go is a great sales pitch.

The actual functionality of the mini #Nintendo 64 console leaves some room to be desired, but that really isn’t the point. The console battery life is only a bit over an hour, and #GmanModz says that it isn’t exactly comfortable to play with. #GmanModz also created a much more functional and what he calls an “actually good” #Nintendo 64 portable designed with the #GameBoy #Advance SP in mind. The goal here with the super small #Nintendo 64 really was just to create a fun project and break the record, and that’s exactly what #GmanModz did.
