    No.

    My friend's Cellphone is twice as powerful as my DS lite.

    Which sucks.

    But yeah, DS is way too weak.

    Amazing how many people forget that Super Mario 64 DS was a port of the N64 version ...

    So many times I've seen these kinds of threads.... IT'S NOT GONNA HAPPEN, PEOPLE!

    As much as I hate to say it, the ds is far to weak. SM64 was a port, which means it was modified so that it will work with the ds's hardware.

    Wasn't a direct port, more of a remake.

    Wasn't SM64 really a remake under the guise of a port?

    Gamecube (and thus wii) and xbox all have semi decent n64 emulation. I know I played through a fair bit of one of those N64 zeldas on my xbox, at any rate.

    And I'm sure they made an N64 emulator for GameCube too. Anyone know whether they got anywhere with a PSP emu (N64 on the PSP)?

    Yes, with time you'd be able to convert N64 to DS. Just need to recode the engine and rework the graphics and controls.

    N64 is indeed emulated on the PSP, but it's slow because it can barely handle it.

    You know, if the PSP can barely emulate the N64, and it's more powerful graphics-wise, etc, how do you think the DS would do it?

    Good enough games can be ported, although it would take a while and be annoying. As far as an emulator, doubt it, highly doubt it.

    these threads are always so depressing. N64 WILL NEVER BE POSSIBLE ON DS.

    wow. it's good to see that this thread has no flame wars yet [​IMG]

    and by the way, how about just learning to make your own homebrew and create the game you want to make?

    And Rayman 2, Diddy Kong Racing & I think Ridge Racer was the N64 version. And also if that Japanese mag was right...Paper Mario.

    Its possible to have many N64 games ported, but you'll need the source code and it only seems that PC developers are willing to give those out. Another thing, DS has no analogue stick and most of the games would need it, sure you could map the controls to d-pad or to the touchscreen but it sucked in Mario & Rayman 2.

    If you're desperate for handheld N64 stuff get a PSP or wait for the DS successor or even one of those lesser popular handhelds.
