In an era of epic AAA game releases, 60fps/4K "enhanced performance" graphics, and sleek new consoles which are near impossible to get, it's nice to go back to a simpler time. A time when the Nintendo N64 was one of the most popular game consoles in the world.

Now, one genius modder has combined the past and the present together to create an N64-inspired Nintendo Switch. This means that players will be able to grab a little piece of gaming nostalgia wherever they are in the world.

What Is The N64-Inspired Nintendo Switch?

Smackedsam, shared his unique creation of an N64-inspired Nintendo Switch console via YouTube. The console is of the gamer's very own build and has the regular layout of a Nintendo Switch but has all the classic controls of the N64 remote, including a joy stick, D-pad, and action buttons. The console, also, can have a built-in expansion pack or a jumper pack, depending on the desires of the buyer, along with a cartridge slot in which players can insert their original N64 games. 

As the console was a one-of-a-kind customisation, smackedsam explained that he was using the clip to show how the console works to its future owner whilst advertising the product for future potential buyers. From the looks of things, unlike the original N64 remote, we don't need to worry about our palms being destroyed

This certainly isn't the first time a modder has looked to the past to create a unique piece of game console gold. For example, there's the world's smallest N64 and our retro dreams were realised when one ingenious creative built a GameCube controller in Joy-Con form

Where Can I Buy The N64 Nintendo Switch?

The retro one-of-a-kind portable N64 console can be ordered via smackedsam's Etsy page. Smackedsam advised any potential buyers to message him directly through Etsy if they had any enquiries about making a purchase. As the console is entirely unique and are dependable on the needs of the customer, there is no set price for the product, or how long it will take to make. 

There are a number of classic N64 titles which are set to be released to the Nintendo Switch very soon. However, for old-school gamers who prefer the having the N64 cartridge life and are dying to give their copy of the iconic GoldenEye 007 a new lease of life, then this might be the perfect console for you.
