Emulators Will Let You Play Your Favorite Nintendo Games on Ouya
Since Ouya was first announced, plenty of great titles have been confirmed for the Android home console, such as the recently-named Broken Age and indie sensation Fez. And there are a bunch more in the pipeline, thanks to an announcement that will be sure to please Nintendo fanboys everywhere.
According to Ed Krassenstein, an administrator over at the Ouya forum, there will be emulator support for NES, SNES, and Nintendo 64 for the Ouya. Like, whoa.
That means that classic titles such as the original Super Smash Brothers, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and Super Mario 64 will all be available to play on Ouya. Let’s hear it for the power of open source!
For the NES, there is the emulator EMUya in the works. And the N64 should see something called Mupen64Plus that should be available to download by the time the physical unit is available. The SNES will likely see a few different emulators as well, including one called SuperGNES.
The Ouya console is set to head out to Kickstarter backers in just a few days, on March 28th, with plans for the unit to arrive on store shelves sometime next month.
