Nintendo 64 emulator coming to iPhone?

updated 06:15 pm EST, Mon December 7, 2009

App likely limited to jailbroken devices

A Nintendo 64 emulator is allegedly being created for the iPhone and iPod touch, according to ModMyi. The app, known as 3G4, overlays many of the N64 controls directly on the screen, although the current beta reportedly lacks L, R, and Z buttons. The early version, claimed to be made by a 14-year-old developer, still shows several bugs such as duplicate button registers, delayed presses and crashes during gameplay.

The emulator, made by NWorksDev, does not appear to be officially licensed by Nintendo, making it an unlikely candidate for App Store approval. Similar apps, such as an unauthorized GameBoy Advance emulator, have been limited to jailbroken devices.

The N64 emulator beta requires the additional processing power of the iPhone 3GS or 3rd-gen iPod touch. The developer's "trailer" suggests the app may be completed sometime early in 2010.
