Because of this, the company RetroArch (specializing in retro game emulation solutions) is working on new hardware that will allow you to run your Nintendo 64 cartridges on your PC.

This project is called RetroArch Open-Hardware, which will begin its compatibility with the N64, but over time it will seek to include other systems to become an open option that allows you to enjoy retro games directly from their original units.

The company has just confirmed that it has already partnered with a hardware manufacturer for a commercial launch, so it’s only a matter of time before anyone interested can get their hands on the promising hardware.
