In recent years, Nintendo has achieved great success with the release of its miniature retro console replicas NES and SNES Classic.
However, the company is unlikely to make "classic" versions of the Nintendo 64 or GameCube consoles as it focuses on digital emulation services such as Switch Online.
Do not worry, YouTuber Madmorda has set itself the task of developing its own mini GameCube Classic.
Madmorda first runs the entire system from a Wii motherboard, which she says has been "scaled down to the size of a Game Boy Color cartridge." GameCube has four controller ports and an integrated handle.
These are not traditional GameCube controller ports, however, because Madmorda uses smaller 3.5mm jacks instead to minimize space. In addition, it has created special dongles that can be connected to the jacks to connect standard GameCube controllers.
However, she notes that this can become confusing in multiplayer mode. It has therefore re-plugged the memory card slots of the GameCube into USB ports for more space. The first memory card slot can be used to plug in a USB flash drive to store and save entire games, while the second slot is for the official Nintendo Wii U GameCube adapter to allow simultaneous use of multiple controllers GameCube Classic supports Composite cable output and micro-USB so it can be used with regular phone chargers. Madmorda says the console can be powered by a power bank even without a power outlet "for a while". She estimates, for example, that a $ 10 Walmart power bank can power the system for about three hours.
That the GameCube Classic works, Madmorda played Super Mario Sunshine (19459013) for about two minutes without any problems.
All in all, it's a really neat, homemade device that makes it all the more sad that we feel very comfortable Never get anything comparable from Nintendo.
