Nintendo Entertainment Emulator System Made out of Old NES

The original Nintendo console may be out of date, but one guy used it to create the ultimate NES emulation system. Mario Bros 3 anyone?

For those of us who grew up in the late 1980s and early 1990s, we knew all about the original Nintendo gaming system. But those days are long gone as Nintendo no longer makes the original NES and the only place to find them are at flea markets where they are sold “as is” because more often than not, they no longer work. But what about playing the original Legends of Zelda, the three Mario Bros games, or any of the others like Dragon Warrior and Mega Man. One guy spent a month in the summer reclaiming his childhood by crated the ultimate Nintendo emulator out of an old Nintendo system. It emulates NES, SNES, N64, and Gameboy games. But one of the best parts is that it uses the classic NES controller!

When you flip the top of the machine, you will not get a place to put a game, but ports for SNES and N64 controllers. And while the creator cites that he would not like to have a lot of wires in the back, it works perfectly. Once the console boots up, a menu shows on the screen asking which system the person wants to play on and after clicking the system, the person can click on what game.

I don’t know, but I am really kind of jealous as my emulator is on my computer and I have to use run-of-the-mill computer controllers. But wow, this has got me in the mood to go and play Mario 2.
