You’ve seen the history of Super Mario Kart, now check out Mario Kart 64 HD, a fan remake that adds high-resolution textures. Creating this mod involved replacing all of the old textures with new ones built from the ground up and it will run on a variety of emulators, including Dolphin.
Around 32-years-ago, the Sharp SF1 TV set with a built-in Super Famicom console was released exclusively in Japan. There were two different models, a larger 21-inch unit and then a version with a 14-inch screen. Problem is that both are not exactly portable, but a modder known as Limone came up with a clever, yet highly refined, solution.
The ultra rare McDonalds Nintendo DS eCDP training game would be a lot more enjoyable to play on what could be the largest Nintendo DS console yet. It’s not what you think though, as this console isn’t exactly portable nor light since it uses a McDonald’s touchscreen kiosk for the bottom half.
There was one specific reason why Nintendo developed Super Mario Kart for the Super Famicom / NES in the early 90s, and it was because they wanted a 2-player racing game for their new flagship console. Hideki Konno realized that there were already too many Formula 1 games, so they turned to go-kart racing, and the rest is history.
Panasonic’s Travelvision CT-101 may be the world’s smallest color CRT TV, but it can still play Super Nintendo games, although a magnifying glass would come in handy. This was touted as a ‘pocket TV’ set back in 1984 and unless you’re wearing something that is massively oversized, we have a feeling you’ll need a backpack to carry the 1.3-pound device around.
Nintendo fans John and Joshua Hanlon of ‘Beyond the Brick’ built a massive LEGO Mario Kart roller coaster, complete with custom characters. Not only is Bowser’s Castle prominently featured, but you’ll also find numerous LEGO minifigures roaming around the theme park-like areas, along with Goombas, Chain Chomps and even Piranha Plants.
A new Super Mario Bros. movie trailer was just revealed during the latest Nintendo Direct, and it teases Rainbow Road, Donkey Kong, and more. It opens with Mario entering a Super Smash Bros. Brawl-like coliseum and taking on the giant gorilla who just ends up grabbing the plumber before slapping him around.
You’ve seen this M1-powered Mac Mini Wii, now check out Mac OS 9.2 running on an unmodified Nintendo Wii console. Programmer Pierre Dandumont knew the game console wasn’t equipped with a PowerPC processor, but it can run a Linux-based OS, which opens the door to Mac-on-Linux to skirt this restriction.
Tarrey Town, a location in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is essentially an uninhabited circular rocky island located in the northern section of Lake Akkala in the Akkala Highlands. It also just happens to be Crossing Craft’s favorite place to go in the game, and that’s why they spent over 300-hours hand crafting a miniature Tarrey Town.
Remember those Classic Console key chains that you can still find at gas stations? Well, one modder turned one into what could possibly be the world’s smallest Nintendo Game Boy, or at least its shell. Inside, there’s an ESP32 processor, 8MB of RAM, 16MB of Flash memory, integrated Wi-Fi, Bluetooth connectivity, and even a built-in speaker.
