The EON Super 64 plug-and-play adaptor gives us a reason to dust off our Nintendo 64 and unbox our copies of Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, and, erm, Daikatana.
Eon has today released the EON Super 64, a new plug-and-play device that connects classic Nintendo 64 hardware to modern displays via HDMI. Eon says the adaptor offers true lag-free input, and upscales N64 games to 480p. The device also includes an optional Slick Mode that smooths out jagged edges to give games a smoother look.
It’s a well-designed piece of kit that complements the N64’s design and plugs into the console’s standard TV out port.
In a press statement, Eon founders, Justin Chou, Justin Scerbo, and Allan Chou, say:
“Because the Nintendo 64 impacted our lives and the lives of so many others, honoring the original hardware with a look and quality level to match was crucial. We designed the Super 64 to bring our favorite games to modern TVs, and not just be playable, but beautiful. We hope our device lives up to your memories.”
The Eon Super 64 is now listed for sale in North America from various retailers including Amazon, and CastleMania Games. The only slight downside is the price – a reasonably steep $149.99 – but for convenience alone it looks like a must buy for Nintendo 64 enthusiasts.
