Krikzz of Everdrive fame recently updated his twitter newsfeed with the following picture.

So it's not 72pins, but only 60pins - could we be in for a Famicom flash cart treat?

Stay tuned for more details as soon as they become available :-)

NEW N64 FLASH DEVICE COMING SOON! ED64 PLUS BY SUPERUFO
September 22nd, 2012 - 4:33 pm - Posted by Martin

SuperUFO is back with yet another flash device after the successful release of the Super UFO8 SD SNES cartridge. This one is called ED64 Plus, not to be confused with Krikzz' Everdrive64.

ED64 Plus was most likely chosen as SuperUFO's old N64 copier was called CD64 Plus. (right? :-)

ED64 Plus will retail for $99 which is less than any of the competition and far cheaper than the only other mass-produced N64 flash cart on the market, the Neo Myth 64.

The feature list released by the manufacturer is as follows (their exact words)

ED64 plus is a Game Cartridge emulator for your N64 Console. It allows you to play your favourite backup game on your N64 console via ED64 plus.

  • Besides the game cartridge emulation function.
  • 64Mbyte (512mbit) SDRAM for ROM data
  • SD and SDHC cards are supported
  • FAT16/FAT32 support.
  • Emulation features
  • Game saves support (SRAM, SRAM128Kbyte, EEPROM16k, EEPROM4k, FlashRam)
  • Region free
  • USB port included (Plug and play)
  • Firmware update by SD card
  • Extend slot for Boot Cartridge -
  • Supports all regions (PAL, USA, Japan)


I'll do my best to have a review ready as soon as possible, meanwhile you might want to visit www.superufo.com for more info.

EDIT: Looks like there's an official website.... http://www.ed64plus.com

Classic Kong has received an update!

The game can be downloaded here until I get a chance to update the SNES homebrew section (planned for the weekend).

GAMECUBE ADVANCE GAME PORT
September 12th, 2012 - 4:35 pm - Posted by Martin

This is actually an old review from NESWORLD's long lost sister site, 64scener. The review was made by RedboX and dissapeared from the site during a facelift and never made it back. 

But here it is, resurrected from the archives of 64scener :-)

A while back I posted some news regarding a new NES homebrew in the works by Frank Westphal, a real-time strategy game called Armed for Battle, I don't believe any NES homebrewer has attempted to do that before?

Anyway a new trailer is out and the game looks awesome :-)
