Turning NES games 3D - 3DNES

We recently brought you news of a project called 3DNES, which had the ambitious goal of allowing you to convert your favourite NES games into 3D.

Since then the project has moved on a bit and our chums over at Eurogamer have spent a bit of time playing around with it to see how easy it is to use in practice. It turns out... not always very easy!

Still, the results on popular games such as Super Mario Bros. are undoubtedly impressive, so 3DNES might be worth a look for anyone who enjoys tinkering around and has lots of patience. There are ethical issues around ROMS, naturally, so you should (in principle) already own the games that you then download and experiment with.

Check out the video below to see how Eurogamer's Ian Higton got on with the tool and be sure to let us know what you think with a comment.
