I havent really been too interested in the NES + SNES mini but I'd be all over this. It will be really interesting to see if they fix the controllers issues though. For me they would have to keep the appearance the same. Personally I love the N64 controllers looks and always have,

What if they go totally crazy and add online multiplayer? They promised such a feature for some virtual console games on the Switch. So it would be a nice small scale test run, maybe limited to just a few of the games like Mario Kart and Super Smash.

I'm with you there, online Mario kart 64 is my absolute dream. I'm not getting the NES or SNES mini by I'll definitely get the N64 version if it comes out.

I figured an N64 mini was inevitable. At this point, though, I'm just interested in how Nintendo will handle the controller. Will parts from the N64 mini controller be compatible with the original N64 controllers?

I have to get one of these if they do release one. As others have said, it hasn't grabbed me so much the others, mainly because I have the games I want on the Snes and NES Mini has some of my favourite games missing - Turtles, Paperboy etc so if I wanted to rekindle my love for this console, I would buy a retro one so I could play ALL my favourites. This combined with my reluctance to pay extortionate prices due to Nintendo mismatching supply and demand.

I really will need to get in early on the pre-orders but the amount of people ordering loads really makes it difficult.

No. Will not buy any of these " mini " versions of consoles. NES, SNES, N64, whatever for the following reasons.

1. Real HW > Anyform of reedition, bootleg, clone
2. They are selling you something that is already done for almost 20 Years: Emulation
3. Input lag, inherent to any form of emulation.

Just pick a second hand N64, loose carts of the titles you like the most and enjoy.

For me it's more about the collectability. I'll always be a fan of the original carts over emulation. I almost have a full PAL set as well so why wouldn't I use that. I guess the idea of the N64 Mini for me is 1) the collectability and 2) interesting to see what they do surrounding the controller. Also, 3) potentially, online multiplayer?

But yeah for actually enjoying the games, as ever, sticking with the originals.

Oh and 4) what if we get a game that was never released or an extra beta game.
