Being a child of the 90s. I got to see the evolution of the PlayStation, Nintendo, Sega, and the Xbox. when I was 12 in 2001 for Christmas, my mom and dad got me the GameCube. I loved that system. it absolutely was such a revolution for its time, according to a twitter post from toruzz on September 2nd. “A portable GC model proposal has been found in the recent leaks. It would’ve included a dock with support for external controllers, network, memory cards, and a mini-DVD drive.” That is right, Nintendo was experimenting with a portable version of the GameCube. However, it is unclear how exactly this would have been realized.
As you may know, 2020 has been a prolific year for Nintendo leaks. Sadly, the leak does not include much information. It is unclear how far along in developing the product was, how serious Nintendo was about bringing it to the market, how much it might have cost, or when it would have released. the only thing the document reveals is that Nintendo, in some capacity, was tinkering away on a transportable version of the GameCube. The Nintendo GameCube is a home game console released by Nintendo in Japan and North America in 2001 and PAL territories in 2002. The GameCube is Nintendo’s entry within the sixth generation of game consoles. it is the successor to their previous console, the Nintendo 64. The GameCube competed with Sony’s PlayStation 2 and Microsoft’s Xbox. The GameCube was the first Nintendo console to use optical discs as its primary medium. The discs are a miniDVD-based format, but the system was not designed to play full-sized DVDs or audio CDs, unlike its competitors, and mainly focused on gaming instead. The console supports limited online gaming for a small number of games via a GameCube broadband or modem adapter and you could hook up with a Game Boy Advance with a link cable, which allows players to access exclusive in-game features using the hand-held as a second screen and controller sort of a Wii U. Reception of the GameCube was generally positive. The console was praised for its controller, extensive software library, and high-quality games. Still, it had been criticized for its exterior design and lack of features. Nintendo sold 21.74 million GameCube units worldwide before the console was discontinued in 2007.
As you may know, Nintendo has found great success within the handheld market, so it is possible that the system was internally viewed as a safe bet and some way to revive the GameCube. thereupon being said, everything here should be taken with a grain of salt, with any leak. Nothing here is official, and now, Nintendo has not commented on the leak, and it is unlikely they are going to. If this ever does become a reality. I feel this may be an amazing product. Just imagine all the games the GameCube has got to offer, but rather than being trapped at home with it, you will take it with you. in a sense, it will be just like the Nintendo switch. With how you will take the system on the go. But I would like to see where they are going with it.
