Nintendo 64 HDMI Adapter Announced by EON Gaming
Revisiting N64 games just got a whole lot easier.
Last year, EON Gaming released a new HDMI GameCube adapter that allowed you to more easily play games from yesteryear on modern televisions while also boasting enhanced visuals. It was a great product that we here at DualShockers really enjoyed. Now, the team at EON Gaming has gone back one generation further and is giving a similar treatment to the beloved Nintendo 64.
As announced by EON today, the EON Super 64 is officially on its way and will allow you to hook up your own N64 to HDMI monitors and TVs. The Super 64 is the first “plug-and-play” HDMI device for the N64 and will scale video quality up to 480p. EON also says that the device won’t lead to any lag and that no additional power supplies or mods are needed to make it work. It’s as simple as plugging into the back of your own N64 and then running an HDMI cable between the console and your TV.
EON also says that the Super 64 will include a “Slick Mode” which will seemingly improve visuals even further. If you want to get a look at how your old N64 games like Super Mario 64, Jet Force Gemini, and many others should look via this device, you can check out the video attached in the Twitter thread at the bottom of the page.
As for the price of the Super 64, it’s going to set you back $149.99. Additionally, units are set to start shipping out in just a couple of weeks on July 22. Pre-orders are also live as of this moment if you’d like to snag one for yourself right now.
This really looks like a fantastic piece of hardware that is in-line with EON’s past work on the GCHD Mk-II. Hopefully, we’ll be able to check the Super 64 out for ourselves in the future and will be able to share out thoughts with you.
