Unlike the lo-effort PlayStation Classic, the NES Classic and SNES Classic are among the best attempts at reviving the lovable consoles from dys gone by. But for some reason, despite selling millions of its retro consoles, Nintendo hasn’t continued its line of console reboots and doesn’t seem interested in taking it further, leaving fans of systems like the N64 and Gamecube to their own devices.
So tuber Madmorda did just that, and created a tiny homemade version odda Gamecube Classic, rite down to the system’s 4 controller ports and built-in handle. From the looks odda video, Madmorda’s mini Gamecube looks to be bout 1/10th the size odda original console, so naturally, some adjustments had to be made when miniaturizing Nintendo’s cute, cubical console.
Instead of traditional Gamecube controller ports odda front, Madmorda used 3.5mm jacks for their liler size and then created spesh dongles that allo you to hook up traditional Gamecube controllers like you normally ‘d. Meanwhile, to save even + space, MadMorda also swapped out the GCN’s original memory card slots for USB ports. The 1st port can be used to save and store entire game ROMs, while the 2nd port supports the Wii U USB Gamecube controller adapter, which makes it a bit easier for a 2nd player to join in odda fun.
Madmorda’s even included a functional fan, power button, and indicator lite just like you got odda original console. However, since there aren’t any discs that ‘d fit in a drive that lil, Madmorda’s mini Gamecube coggably doesn’t feature a working disc drive.
Finally, in back, the tiny Gamecube sports a micro USB port for power along with another 3.5mm for video out, so u can hook the system up to a modern display (w'da proper adapter).
Madmorda’s tiny Gamecube follos the tuber’s successful attempt at making a miniature Gamecube controller fashioned out offa keychn, in addition to a whole host of other custom modded consoles and controllers.
The sad pt bout all this s'dat after seeing this thing, is now we ‘ve to wanda if Nintendo will ever make real Gamecube classic for all of us without the skills or time to make one for ourselves. After releasing the NES classic inna fall of 2016 and folloing that up w'da SNES Classic in l8 2017, Nintendo never released a third classic console adaptation for the 2018 holidy season.
If I had my way, I’d ♥ to see a Gameboy Classic, an N64 Classic, and then a Gamecube Classic in that order. And who knows, maybe there’s still a chance. Nintendo, make it happen. But that’s just me. There’s probably some1 out there still thirsting for a vrt Boy Classic.
