    Short Answer - No.
    Longer Answer-
    It borders impossible for anyone to do this in a reasonable amount of time.
    It also borders impossible for most the games to be playable, or even full speed.
    Then the issue of buttons
    N64 - D-Pad, Analog, A, B, Z, L, R, CUp-CDown-CLeft-CRight, Start
    DS - D Pad, A,B,X,Y,L,R, Start, Select

    Then the issue of porting Nintendo property as homebrew
    And now reiterating the fact that it borders impossible for this to be done even if the DS was powerful enough.

    Nintendo and Rare ported N64 games to the DS, so I think if homebrew authors don't want to port entire closed-source titles without so much as documentation on their engines available to them, they're just being lazy.

    Extremely valid point. We should capture those lazy homebrew developers and force them into these projects for our senior member Jerme.

    Oh, what a brilliant Idea Jerme! I can't believe I never thought of porting the best N64 games to the DS before! I'll get my crack team right on it, all because you had this brilliant idea!

    Unless this is a joke I'm not getting...the amount of insane requests on this board the last few months have been nuts. It would be easier to write a brand new DS game than to port an existing one you don't have access to the code to.

    Way to overreact to an abbreviation just because at one point people used it as an ethnic slur, despite the fact that it's been used before and since then without racist overtones. Also way to assume that anyone who could possibly say "Jap" is white. Who's bigoted now?

    The appropriate abbreviation for Japan in English is JPN.
    Jap is still an ethnic slur.

    Insted of making an emulator port each differently, because every game doesn't use all the controls

    Homebrew = only if a miracle happens.

    Commercial = Maybe, but unlikely.

    For one, I refuse to say "jay pee enn" out loud, it's longer than the word it supposedly abbreviates. That doesn't make any damn sense.

    For two, why do you have say over what is "appropriate"? Jap is used in Singapore and Hong Kong freely, and hell, the majority of Japanese people are apathetic about the term. Nobody can dictate what abbreviations people use, least of all a few racists from sixty years ago. If you want to argue that it should be dropped out of some sort of pre-emptive defense against offending people, then perhaps you should offer the same advice to Buddhists or even Japanese video game developers, who make liberal use of the swastika despite its historical usage in Germany. But given that I'm not some sort of cultural imperialist, I have no problem with swastikas or with the abbreviation "Jap".

    Also, you still never gave a reason why only white people could possibly use "Jap", which I've already debunked by the fact that it's quite common in both Singapore and Hong Kong.

    Nobody even said they will make an emulator. The guy said "port" not "emulate".
    And all ports are ported individually.

    By the time it takes for somebody to port these to DS, Nintendo will already have a new hand held out that can easily emulate N64 games of all kinds.
