Nintendo Fan Creates Gamecube Classic Mini (VIDEO)
‘Mini’ versions of classic video game consoles for the most part dominated the holiday seasons these past few years, with eyes now on the next highly anticipated return to form for the Nintendo 64. Unfortunately, we likely won’t see that console until later this year, with the soonest possibility being E3 2019. In the meantime, though, a YouTuber has taken it upon herself to create a Gamecube Classic mini, a fully working replica of the iconic Gamecube console.
YouTuber Madmorda recently released a video showing off her creation to the world, and it’s so small that it can fit in the palm of your hand. Throughout the video, Madmorda compares her creation to the full-sized Gamecube console before hooking it up and playing a game with it, showing off how perfectly it all works. Check out the video below:
According to Madmorda, the Gamecube Classic was built using a gummy candy case and parts from a Nintendo Wii. She took the motherboard for the Wii and trimmed it down to roughly the size of a Gameboy color cartridge. The Gamecube Classic has a fully functioning power button, orange LED light, controller ports (that require adapters), and two USB slots: one that is used for game saves, the other of which can be used as an additional controller port.
Overall the homemade Gamecube Classic Mini console is immensely impressive, and we can only hope that the folks over at Nintendo hurry it up with the real thing. In the meantime, might we suggest that they hire her?
So, thoughts on Madmorda’s creation? Would you purchase a Gamecube Classic of that size? Let us know in the comments section below, and as always, stay tuned to Don’t Feed the Gamers for all the latest gaming and entertainment news! Don’t forget to follow DFTG on Twitter for our 24/7 news feed!
