Clone consoles that play classic game cartridges in HD have been popular for a while now, such as Analogue’s “NT” systems or Hyperkin’s Retron range, but the Nintendo 64 has been unfortunately passed over.

The Ultra Retron will appear at E3 2019 next week, so we’ll almost certainly learn more there.
