Here’s How To Turn An Old Nintendo 64 Into A Dock For A ‘Nintendo Switch 64’

Pretty cool little DYI project if you happen to be lucky enough to have an old school Nintendo 64 sitting around. A couple weeks ago Reddit user tettzan777 figured out how to turn a Nintendo 64 into a playable Nintendo Switch dock, complete with a controller. It’s a cool way to play Switch games on a bigger screen.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to creating a Nintendo Switch 64 dock. If you proceed, please make sure it’s a broken N64 ready to go to the video game graveyard. As a ’90s kid, it’d break my millennial heart to see a perfectly fine N64 be unassembled to use a Switch. But at the same time, I get it — Who has time for cartridges these days?
