3DS can't emulate N64 games. It's the same reason why PS2 support for Vita will never exist.

Not enough RAM stranger.


Super mario 64 on ds, oot 3d and starfox 64 3d on 3ds say n64 games on 3ds are very doable.

I'm raging about it, especially about Earthbound.

And it's not like the 3DS COULDN'T emulate GBA and N64.

Heck, a few of the original 3DS games were 64 remakes.


not even the same thing. Cmon now.


What I meant is that it's clearly graphically capable, and I'm pretty sure the engine could handle it.

Is it that it can't emulate 64, or that they don't want it to?


It absolutely can, they just dont feel like putting in the effort. Wii u needs something to help it out. If this was for 3ds, what would the point of a wii u even be if all the good stuff is on 3ds? I dont particularly like it, especially for the reasoning, but I can see their side too.

I'm almost certain their version of the new Smash Bros. will be miles ahead of the 3DS's version. That should carry them for awhile.

The VC just seems like something they could both share.

3DS can emulate N64 just fine. Emulation is mostly processing power.

You kidding me? The 3DS has ports of Wii games and it can't handle N64 emulation? The PSP could emulate the N64 for gods sake. You're just plain wrong.
