The memory will probably be on board, I can see them dropping the rumble. Tbh I don't mind as long as they are the exact same dimensions and have an improved analogue stick.

There's no way they are dropping any of the controller ports, not with Smash, Mario Party and Mario Kart being part of the line-up

Was there any Wii classic controller that supported rumble? As far as I know, the only way to get rumble on Wii VC was to use a GameCube controller.

This! I'm starting to grow concerned that we won't see anything but NES games (the "Classic Collection" , or whatever Nintendo ends up calling it) on Switch. :(

An N64 Mini would be great. I know the controller feels downright odd today, but it's surprisingly characteristic and a lot of the best N64 games are a great fit. I was playing on my N64 for the first time in 5 years the other week (I'd ordered Mystical Ninja 2 which I'd never played before), and while it took me 15 minutes to properly get used to the controller again, it just felt "right".

Seeing that odd controller go into production again in the modern era is going to be cool.

Still, there are a few things I'm concerned about if it does happen:

1) GoldenEye 007. Nintendo should sort out some licensing arrangement with MS and with Eon Productions for the James Bond License. This is a console-defining game that needs to be included.

2) Emulation quality. I get that HD will be a big draw, but proper low-level N64 emulation, the only way to get an image faithful to the console, won't be possible on a cheap ARM box and that's a shame. A recent Core i7 with a GTX 980 struggles to run low-level N64 emulation smoothly with Vulkan.

Can't really say I'm interested in N64 mini too much. Most games aged kinda poorly IMO, they look pretty bad, and there aren't many that interest me personally. And some of the ones that do have been remade, or are Rare games.

But put Mario Party on there.

Why are people thinking this is for a N64 Mini? They also filed trademarks for SNES, NES and Switch controls at the same time. Surely they would have filed the SNES one months/years ago and the NES one too if these were Mini Classics related?

If they can get Golden Eye, they should have 4 ports and controllers. It'll be impossible to find.

I'm sure they can work out a deal, I hope so.

However much I would love one with a good N64 emulator.

Nintendo and MS have a pretty good relationship, the Switch was shown in Minecraft during the MS E3 conf. lol. I dont think Rare games will be an issue, Goldeneye would have other hurdles due to the Bond licenses.

I don't think this will ever be as essential as the SNES Mini, due to so many of the best N64 games being made by Rare.

But, a big issue with playing N64 these days is that it just looks so bad on my tv, so at least an N64 Mini would have an HDMI out and I'd hopefully actually be able to make out what was happenings on the screen.

Also: Rakuga Kids pls

What good 3rd party stuff would they be able to get? The Rare games would be out of reach, right?

Ogre battle 64
Megaman legends (if Capcom was a needed partner)
Resident evil 2
Bomberman 64 or heroes
Tony Hawk pro skater
Crusin USA
Harvest Moon
One of the wrestling games
Rogue Squadron
Also you forgot paper Mario and Mario tennis
Hell maybe they will even do one of the castlevania games, but I assume 15 to 18 games this time anyways.

I'd think that the device will do 1080p as it's video output but when you upscale those old n64 games to that level their huds and 2D alpha textures become a mess, so I would limit it to 480p like the VC does.

At least on the Rare front, Phil Spencer has said that he's extremely open to letting Nintendo use those IP. It's just a matter of whether or not they can work out a reasonable deal.

Why do you assume that? Microsoft is just another company. Why wouldn't they allow their games on the n64 mini? Microsoft and Nintendo get on much better than Sony and Nintendo.
