Unlike the low-effort PlayStation Classic, NES Classic and SNES Classic are among the best attempts to revive the beloved consoles of yesteryear. But for some reason, despite selling millions of their retro consoles, Nintendo has not continued its line of console restarts and does not seem interested in taking it further, leaving fans of systems like the N64 and Gamecube on their own. dispositives.
So YouTuber Madmorda did just that, and created a small home version of Gamecube Classic, up to the four system control ports and the built-in handle. From the look of the video, Madmorda's mini Gamecube is about one-tenth the size of the original console, so naturally, some adjustments were made by miniaturizing the cute and cubic Nintendo console.
Instead of the traditional Gamecube controller ports on the front, Madmorda used 3.5mm connectors for its smaller size and then created special dongles that allow you to connect traditional Gamecube controllers as you would normally. Meanwhile, to save even more space, MadMorda also changed the slots for original GCN memory cards for USB ports. The first port can be used to store and store all game ROMs, while the second is compatible with the Wii U USB Gamecube controller, which makes it easier for a second player to join the fun.
Also included is a functional fan, a power button and an indicator light as you have it in the original console. However, there are no discs that would fit in such a small unit, Madmorda's mini gamecube, understandably, does not have a working disk drive.
Finally, on the back, the small Gamecube has a micro USB port for power and another 3.5 mm for video output, so you can connect the system to a modern screen (with the appropriate adapter).
Tiny Gamecube by Madmorda follows YouTuber's successful attempt to make a miniature gamecube controller from a keychain, as well as a host of other custom modded controllers and consoles.
The sad thing about all this is that, after seeing this, we now have to ask ourselves if Nintendo will ever be a true Gamecube classic for all of us without the skills or time to create one for us. After launching the classic NES in the fall of 2016 and continuing with the SNES Classic in late 2017, Nintendo never released a third classic console adaptation for the 2018 holiday season.
If I had my way, I would love to see a Gameboy Classic, an N64 Classic and then a Gamecube Classic in that order. And who knows, maybe there's still an opportunity. Nintendo, make it happen. But that's just me. There's probably someone out there thirsty for a Virtual Boy Classic.
