The Nintendo 64 was first back during June 1996 in Japan, September 1996 in North America, and March 1997 in Europe /Australia. It was an overwhelming success and also the last major home console to use the ROM cartridge as its primary storage format until the Switch. Eventually, the game console was discontinued in 2002 following the launch of its successor, the GameCube. Many gamers during that time hoped there would be a portable version, and one modder made it a reality. Read more to see the world’s smallest N64 portable with a cartridge slot.
