It would be so cool if they reproduced all the original ICs and shrunk them down. But I suppose it is an emulator. And if it is an emulator then you can't expect it to be authentic..... or can you?

In the press release they mention that the games have 'suspend points'... so save states... which could be implemented in hardware in theory but probably it's an emulator.

The game list looks good. Star Tropics is good. Ninja Garden is good. It seems like whoever picked the games had a clue.

Can anyone find a link to an official Nintendo website about this?

The real shocker here isn't the hardware, it's the fact that Nintendo is selling their ROMs for less than $5 a piece, and actually put together a fairly large collection of mostly good games. Usually they just push the button on the money printer and assume fans will take what they get and like it. I mean it's not quite at Sega's level of desperately trying to please fans of their old games, but at least they're not laughing at us anymore?

In unrelated news, I see we now have "new 3DS" exclusive Virtual Console releases. Vanilla 3DS can't quite hack the likes of Contra 3 eh?

>> No.3359061

The image you posted was a total disaster of a release, not even equivalent to the Super Mario All-Stars release on the SNES.

>> No.3359313

They could have developed a SNES emulator for the original 3DS if they wanted, but they would have had to put more effort into it and optimize it. So they only released it on the New 3DS instead, which required less effort and possibly brings them more money if people decide to buy a New 3DS because of it.

Also apparently Nintendo loves savestates now since they basically said running GBA games natively isn't the optimal experience because you can't have them.

>> No.3359327

>And if it is an emulator then you can't expect it to be authentic..... or can you?
Define authentic.

>> No.3359724

This wasn't outsourced to some chinkware company like AtGames so it should sound fine.

And if you're having latency problems try checking your TV setting to see if there's a games/graphics mode, that usually helps a lot with lag.

>running GBA games natively
They do?
Why there is no GBA emulator for 3DS then?

>> No.3359875

The 3DS can run GBA games natively. Nintendo gave 10 GBA games to people who bought a 3DS in the first few months after its released and stated they would have not released any more, and that they would have been limited to those people. Their excuse is that, despite it's running natively, it does not run well and doesn't give all the features you'd expect from VC nowadays (basically savestates)
At first they were developing an emulator for GBA VC, but then gave up on it and just did it this way. They left the emulator along with all of the other 3DS VC emulators and it doesn't run well, obviously because development was never completed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FXSu9MauWSY
If you mod your 3DS you can install any GBA game you want.

This is literally another Jakks TV Game/Flashback/Plug-n-Play system. It is really nothing to care too much about beyond a cute novelty. It won't drive up prices, it won't destroy prices, it won't be a revolutionary way to play NES games. It'll be something to give casual fans a way to play popular games, make a cheap high content gift for kids or friends, and another piece of shelf candy for Nintendo collectors that they can easily take with them on trips or something.

It does feel weird to see Nintendo themselves releasing something like this, though. I'm sure it'll get scalped to hell and collectors and speculators will pay out the ass for them, only to later realize that Nintendo does like making money and will therefore continue to manufacture them long after the first few shipments.

Aright motherfuckers. Lets get one thing clear. This isn't chink shit, its official nintendo hardware. Now I don't know what might be inside these things, but I do know that when it comes to production, Nintendo doesn't make shit. I'm talking about the longevity and durability of the consoles and controllers. If taken care of, they last for decades. The original NES had a cartridge connector issue, but you can easily replace those for a few bucks online. It may just be and Nes-on-a-chip inside but if its emulated right, who cares? Remember when the Genesis multi-systems came out a few years ago? The sound was fucked, the speed was off. it was horrible. I probably won't buy one of these minis, but I plan to pick up a couple of the NES controllers because I know they'll have the quality retro feel. Add a mayflash adapter and you're solid. We might even see an SNES mini next year. Either way, you know this will sell like crazy.

>> No.3361009

Here's my peeve of mine.

The list is underwhelming not because of the quantity or the price, because lets face it, while this may be aimed at casuals at best and hipsters at worst.

The problem (at least to me) is the games themselves, since they are ALL COMMON to Widespread titles aside maybe from Bubble Bobble, not to mention, is a combination of mostly gen 1 and gen 2 NES titles, Double Dragon II, Dr Mario, Super C and Kirby's Adventure are the only 3rd gen NES games, and in conjunction with the other titles, the list in general feels like how most "generic" NES library collections most people used to have, mostly gen 1 & 2 nes titles with only one or two post 1989 titles that truly exploit the limits of the console, you know what i am talking about right?

For the tag price ($60)

What we needed, is at the very least 50 titles, AND nintendo to add the usage of SD Card and the ability to connect to the E-Shop (wi-fi only) and download more titles for the console, and maybe take more risks and ACTUALLY BOTHER to include games that range from average to rare in the library, i mean sure i dont expect them to include games like the licensed titles (the good ones, which is a shame since they could have added Goonies II, Little Nemo, Batman, etc) and it kinda would be ludicrous to expect them to add teh "gems" like VICE, Panic Restaurant, Mr Gimmick, Little Samson, Gargoyles Quest II, but cmon, a few more "hidden gems" would have been THE TITS!

Even as shitty and pathethic the Genesis Emu-Boxes that are sold for cheap, they at the very least bother to include high end late titles like BOTH vectorman titles, and Beyound Oasis, and some RPGs.

>> No.3361015

>Remember when the Genesis multi-systems came out a few years ago? The sound was fucked, the speed was off. it was horrible

To be fair, this was true of original Mega Drives as well since they had a ridiculously huge number of hardware revisions.

Is it really an emulator though? I mean it could be merely a rasp pi, but I would hope they would create hardware specifically designed for this sort of thing. Afterall they made the fucking original. So what line is to be drawn on what is emulation and what isn't? It's technically just a re-release for modern times.

>> No.3361039

My personal NES collection includes: Balloon Fight, DK Classics, Tengen Pac-Man, Tengen Ms. Pac-Man, Double Dragon, Bad Dudes, Archon, LOZ, Zelda II, SMB/Duck Hunt/WCTM, SMB, SMB3, Castlevania, Mega Man 1, Lode Runner, Tetris, Bubble Bobble, Dragon Quest 1, DQ II, and Kirby's Adventure.

I bet the license for that would have been a nightmare. Warner Brothers will probably not let that go for any price less than "astronomical".

I wonder, do any of the games listed have special chips in their original cartridges? If so, that might be a complication keeping Nintendo from including later gen games.

I mean, I can see N sticking to earlier titles, because that better captures the "retro" feel. let us all get on our knees and thank God they didn't just go with first year, first party titles like Gyromite, and shit.

You overestimate the average consumer.

If this has the nintendo brand and is placed behind a locked glass door? It's going to sell, without a doubt. If it's marketed as a premium product rather than some shit turd in the toy section it will sell, and heavily. That's why it's over $60.

It's not about caring or not (maybe they actually care, because there's no option for expansion of any kind) it's about having a single entry point. I mean, the Wii Mini has a single USB and it remains unhacked. The NES mini has not a single physical entry point.

As far as anyone can tell the Wii mini is basically just a common wii with fewer ports.

Of course the Wii Mini is theorically hackable, like de NES mini wiil be if they use Wii or 3DS internals with a mooded version of their OS as the base for this baby.

BUT both Wii Mini and NES mini lacks hardware needed to be hackeable. No Wifi or Ethernet, no SD card slot, no anything, so they need a hard mod performed on them before getting to the hack itself, and i have my doubts about the time and effort invested on it being enough to worth it.

It actually makes a lot of sense for them to use the 3DS since the CPU is a cheap and readily available ARM core and the OS for the 3DS can provide useful information for the games like the actual game manual and in the case of Startropics that piece of paper you have to soak with water to reveal one of the clues.

Wii VC = good

So that doesn't spell doom to me at all. Better yet, this thing won't get any other games so I don't see Nintendo not making sure the emulation runs smoothly.
