The GameCube Classic That Could Have Been

Date:16 May 2019 Author: Brendon Petersen Tags:, , , , , ,

In November 2016, Nintendo released its pint-sized NES Classic, a mini version of its original home console that came fully loaded with its best games. The next year, Nintendo followed up that retro console success with the SNES Classic.

With Sony also joining the miniaturization party, it seemed inevitable that Nintendo would continue onward to the N64 and GameCube, but Nintendo doesn’t seem particularly interested in the idea. So it has fallen to fans to create the mini gaming world that could have been.

YouTuber Madmorda recently uploaded a video detailing her latest build: a miniature GameCube. The creator kept the iconic console’s boxy/purple look and also got creative with its internals, using a modified Nintendo Wii motherboard and creating a modified controller dongle. It also outputs with an audio jack and powers with MicroUSB.

Of course, it works like a charm. And we want one ASAP.
