Photos from Nintendo Classic Mini N64 dive on Twitter

Surprise! Nintendo continues on the same path and comes after and Classic Mini NES and SNES also with a tiny Nintendo 64 that is full of classics of that period. A user on Twitter leaked a number of photos from the device and that looks exactly like a small Nintendo 64. There are Wii-style connectors in the console so you can play together with the four of you. The retractable flap can also be seen that also in the NES Classic Mini was used to make the ‘console’ look beautiful if there was no controller.

It could, of course, be that the photos are fake, but that chance is fairly small. Even if they were fake, you can still see this as a “target render” of the final device. The chance that Nintendo will not make a N64 Mini is just as big as the chance that you, the reader, the Super Mario Bros. speedrun record is about to break.

Good timing

In terms of timing it would also be time for Nintendo to come up with this small console, because the holidays are coming and if Nintendo were to deliver the N64 Mini this year, it would be a great gift for Christmas or Sinterklaas. There are more than enough people who grew up with an N64, so with the popularity it should be a mustache.

Such a small N64 would have the same problem that the [PlaystationClassic] has, namely that the games did not stand very well on the graphical plane. The advantage is that Nintendo’s games are often made with the constraints of a console (more than Playstation games) and that although it is blocky, it would still be reasonable to play Mario 64 or Ocarina of Time again.

Speaking of which, no leak on a miniature console is complete without a list of games that we would like to see, so let’s assume 15 games and then we like this:

  • Super Mario 64
  • Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  • Zelda: Majora’s Mask (dont @ me)
  • Super Smash Bros.
  • GoldenEye 007
  • Diddy Kong Racing
  • Perfect Dark [19659008] Banjo-Kazooie
  • Paper Mario
  • Star Fox 64
  • Mario Kart 64
  • F-Zero X
  • Wave Race 64
  • Conker’s Bad Fur Day
  • Excite Bike 64

] Bonus (but it will not):

  • Sin & Punishment
  • Blast Corps
  • Space Station Silicon Valley
  • Bangai-O
  • Harvest Moon

We need to know very quickly from Nintendo what the plans are with the N64 Mini, to that this time it is a rumor.
