Nintendo 64 Games May Be Heading to Switch Soon

Consumer Associations in 9 EU countries ask Nintendo for solutions for defective Joy-Con

Nintendo made a lot of dreams come through when it announced Super Mario 3D All-Stars a couple of weeks back, confirming that three absolutely beloved classic 3D Mario games were coming to the Switch in crisp HD.

Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite may be getting more Nintendo 64 games soon. The discovery comes the way of the latest datamining effort of Super Mario 3D All-Stars, which reveals that not only is the game seemingly running on an N64 emulator but that there are references to other N64 games within these files. What’s even more exciting is that this emulator contains references to various other Nintendo classics, including Perfect Dark and Pokémon Snap.

Thanks to one Twitter user going by DashingIb who dug through the game’s code, there are apparently strings referencing a variety of Nintendo 64 games that are unrelated to Super Mario. The strings specifically reference Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Paper Mario 64, Perfect Dark, Mario Tennis, Mario Golf, and Pokemon Snap.

However, it’s nonetheless very exciting, because it suggests that Nintendo has worked first-party emulators built for the Switch, running N64, GameCube, and Wii games.

That means that this could be the floodgate-opening moment that we’ve been waiting for when it comes to ports of classic Nintendo titles for the Switch, whether that’s through the Nintendo Switch Online membership like NES and SNES games, or sold individually through the eShop.

There’s been the sense for a little while now that Nintendo must surely have a plan for the expansion of its retro offering to include at least the Nintendo 64 if not more recent generations. While this could pave the way for that, it also might not emerge for a while yet, in time-honored Nintendo fashion.

Leak: video of a working PlayStation 5 dev kit appeared

Before the official release of the PlayStation 5 design last year, images of devkits, a version of the console for game developers, were repeatedly leaked online. Someone merged photos, someone made renders, or simply redrawn the silhouette of the PS5 dev kit. Now the video has appeared with the included console.

A TikTok user posted a video of the PS5 devkit and noted that the console gets so hot that it can be used as a heater in cold weather. A few hours later, the account with the video was deleted, but someone managed to make a copy.

Debug information is displayed on the left side of the console. The devkit from the video is connected to a gigabit network and is equipped with some firmware 1.0.0.9.

Apparently, the author of the video was allowed to take the console home for the duration of the remote work. The final design of the PS5 is strikingly different from the working studio version, both inside and out.
