Raspberry Pi 3 Nintendo 64 Emulation – 20 N64 Games Tested with RetroPie 3.6



Raspberry Pi 3 Nintendo 64 Emulation: 20 N64 Games Tested with RetroPie 3.6

Hey Guys, the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is finally here! It comes with a host of upgrades like a faster processor, and on board WiFi and Bluetooth, but the one thing we all want to see is how games run on this new device. This is the first in a set of videos where I will run through various games on a system to see how they perform. In future videos I will take a few key games and highlight the improvements from the Raspberry Pi 2.So sit back, and enjoy seeing how these new games run. I have added shortcuts in the video so you can skip back and forward between games. As a bit of a spoiler, games are running pretty well!

Just like the RPi2 N64 video, I have tried to choose a selection of games that test N64 emulation as well as a few favourites. We all know Super Mario 64 will run beautifully so I haven’t chosen games like that.

See below for links to timestamp links to individual games. Emulation start links to the video when emulation is started, Gameplay start links to when I start playing (skipping intros etc.)
