Players create the world’s smallest classic N64 handheld console

The N64 is the home console of the third generation that Nintendo released in 1996. Works such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Super Mario 64 have been highly praised. An epoch-making introduction of analog joysticks is the grip. Button and trigger. So far, many sentimental players have met such a historically relevant host.

Such a nostalgic player is YouTuber GmanModz. He is devoted to converting diverse nostalgic consoles into compact handhelds. The N64 described above is the protagonist of his new project, creating the smallest N64 handheld in the world.

No special PCB for construction was used by GmanModz. In order to minimize space, he decided to use the Joycon analog joystick and mounted a 3.5-inch 320 x 240 resolution display. This handheld is fitted with an 1860mAh battery, which provides the handheld with around 1.5 hours of battery life. This handheld N64 is 23 percent smaller than the former handheld N64 record holder, making it the world’s smallest handheld N64.
