Hyperkin revealed their upcoming budget clone of the Nintendo 64. ModernVintageGamer compared their previews with emulators and found that it’s based on Mupen64, an open-source software based emulator that has been around the block for a long time. Mupen64 runs on pretty much every platform under the sun already (phones, computers, etc), so you can already play it on your own device, which is probably immensely more powerful hardware than whatever is inside of the Hyperkin budget clone.
FYI @Hyperkin's N64 Clone system is definitely using Mupen64 emulation. It's above average but not perfect (look at the tv screen above the tunnel) . N64 emulation is not perfect and this is the reason why I believe there wont be an official N64 classic for a while yet pic.twitter.com/BfxRbcLgME
