Accessories maker Hyperkin is apparently working on a portable Nintendo 64 system.

The news comes from Hyperkin Senior Account Manager Ramon Navos-Moral, who (rather foolishly, it should be said) posted the following images of a functioning prototype system on his Facebook page:

The machine itself appears to be modelled on the N64 controller, with a screen built-in for portable play. There's a cartridge slot on the back.


We've since contacted Hyperkin for comment and they have revealed that action has been taken against Navos-Moral for distributing internal R&D projects online. Hyperkin has also confirmed that the device is indeed real but like many of the devices it produces behind closed doors, it's just a prototype and may not enter production.

Would you buy a portable N64? Let us know with a comment.
