YouTuber Nintendrew, a Nintendo enthusiast, has built his own Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition and raises questions about whether there's a way for the device to become a real thing.
Last summer, Nintendo filed a trademark for preparation for a Nintendo 64 Classic Edition. Will players soon see signs that the Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition is in the works?
Nintendrew builds Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition
In a new video, Nintendrew tried a Nintendo 64 Classic Edition after last year's attempt to build a Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition
For the Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition, Nintendrew tried a mini Version of the console, which was similar to the NES Classic Edition and the SNES Classic Edition, but without sacrificing functionality and affordability. The size of the GameCube files compared to the NES and SNES files, as well as the hardware to run, made it more difficult to keep the cost of the project under $ 1
According to Nintendrew, the Raspberry Pi worked well for its Nintendo 64 Classic Edition, and needed something even more powerful for the Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition. He used the UpSquared board, which was bigger than the Raspberry Pi and had a fan.
Nintendrew noticed that there were problems in a third of the games he tested. However, he believes Nintendo would iron out these issues if they really did make a Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition.
Then Nintendrew created a true-looking 3D-printed case with ventilation and a USB hub that supports four controllers like the original
Will the Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition really happen?
Nintendrew's technical issues have dampened the ability of the Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition. However, it is the costs that served as a last sign that it will not be published soon. The sales price of the UpSquared Board has already risen from $ 229 to $ 319 and is therefore already more expensive than the sales prices of the NES Classic Edition and the SNES Classic Edition.
"Even if you have a direct relationship with manufacturers, odds, Nintendo would still pay at least $ 100 for each unit," said Nintendrew, who could place the Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition at a hard-to-sell price.
Super Smash. Bros. On Nintendo GameCube
If the Nintendo GameCube Classic Edition really happens, its main purpose will probably be to play Super Smash Bros. Melee console's best-selling game.
Super Smash Bros. Fans should not be disappointed if the retro console does not become an official product. The Super Smash. Bros for the Nintendo Switch is already official, and the game is a big part of Nintendo's presence at the upcoming E3 in 2018.
