The Nintendo 64 is, without a doubt, one of the most iconic and important consoles in the video game industry; at the end of the day, many of the games that marked our childhood debuted exclusively for that platform during the 1990s. A very talented fan decided to honor it in a very special and original way.
Although they are far from living their prime, arcade cabinets, known in Mexico and Latin America as “maquinitas”, are still very popular and loved. While companies like Arcade1Up are in charge of marketing this kind of items, there are fans who prefer to test their knowledge to build them themselves.

A little machine with Nintendo 64 games? A fan made it happen
That is the case of Ravnfrausing, a user who decided to create his own “little machine” with Nintendo 64 video games. Of course, it was an extremely difficult task that not only required time and effort, but also a lot of money. He shared his work on the internet and it quickly went viral.
Through a post on reddit, the fan shared some images that show how this arcade cabinet works. He used a CRT television that connects to an original console, all within a complex wooden frame. In the description, he explains that it cost him about $650 USD to build, that is, more than $11,700 MXN.

Despite the high price, some users on the forum were shocked and expressed their interest in having their own Nintendo 64 “little machine”. In response to a fan, Ravnfrausing commented that in a couple of weeks he will start making a guide that will allow others to people replicate this project.
While only the Mario Kart 64 cartridge is visible in the images, other titles such as Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Golden Eye 007, and many more may also be playable. With this in mind, it is not surprising that many fans want to have this arcade cabinet in their home.
But tell us, what do you think of this initiative? Would you dare to create this little machine? Let us read you in the comments.
