This year, RetroArch hopes to make it possible to play authentic Nintendo 64 cartridges on PC emulators

So RetroArch is partnering with “a hardware manufacturer for a commercial release – bringing the peripheral into everyone’s hands – while still keeping a free and open DIY route.” The devs hope to bring this device into production in the middle of the year, with a full release to follow late in 2022, though they acknowledge that there are some major issues with global logistics at the moment.

There are now a number of devices that can read your old game cartridges, dump the data to a PC, and allow you to enjoy simple, legal emulation of your own library. RetroArch, on the other hand, is frustrated that these devices are frequently pricey, out of stock, or otherwise difficult to locate, so they’ve created their own solution. Nearly a year ago, the Open Hardware project was announced as a suggested DIY standard for a USB device that directly integrates your cartridges into RetroArch. “We stand by this goal to this day,” the developers write in a new blog post, “but we felt that the DIY market alone would not aid the cause sufficiently to bring emulation to the mainstream.”

The device is still in the design phase, but the devs are hoping for an initial release supporting Nintendo 64 cartridges, with add-on modules for additional cartridge types to follow. A survey asks potential buyers about price points anywhere from $20 to $100 USD. You shouldn’t necessarily take that as a concrete indicator of what the device would cost, but that survey is a way for you to let the devs know what you think about pricing.
