​Classic Nintendo 64 Games Have Been Emulated Onto Switch Devices

​Classic Nintendo 64 Games Have Been Emulated Onto Switch Devices

There's nothing better than revisiting a classic game, and it's an extra bonus when your favourites can be played on new consoles.

This can be hard for some players, however, as a selection of current-gen devices don't feature backwards compatibility.

One clever soul has obviously had enough of this nonsense, and has now found a way to emulate Nintendo 64 games on brand new Switch consoles, much to the appreciation of Nintendo fanboys.

Footage of Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64, Pokémon Stadium 2 and Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards are all shown on _Mizumi's Twitter account, which you can check out here.

We don't expect Nintendo will be releasing a remake of the 64 or even allowing 64 games to come onto the Switch, but this paints a pretty good picture as to what it could look like if they did.

Nintendo have been having their fair share of hacking problems recently, and this is just the icing on top of the cake. Pornographic images found themselves on Super Mario Odyssey, which resulted in the video game company banning a variety of online services for people who reportedly hacked their system.

The problem with the N64 hack, however, is that players have been asking for it to be officially added for ages. Now everyone has got a taste of what it's like, we don't imagine the demands will stop any time soon, which just gives adds more pressure on Nintendo.

What do you think about these hacks? Would you like to see classic games come onto the new portable device? Let us know!
