Video: Playing Super Mario and other NES games on the Nokia N8 (and other S^3)

Soon I’ll get around to not calling it S^3 and just Symbian like the Nokia folk…it’s difficult not to.

Anyway, kumaranunay123 has a couple of videos for thenokian8blog.info where he gives us a tutorial on how to play those classic nintendo games on your N8. Since there’s no physical keys that old Flash keypad comes up.

I’m not sure if the frame rate will be as the video shows or if that’s just due to the capture rate.

    i was hoping for something like this

    but i was hoping the games would be full screen and the on screen controls would just be a transparent overlay

      Why Nintendo hasn’t jumped at this a couple of years ago is beyond me.
      Develop a good emulator to deliver the games, games at € 2,50 or something and people will pay that.
      Games don’t need to be developed since they are already there. I consider it a WIN-WIN situation.

    Need a PS3 Controller, why hasn’t someone done that yet for Symbian, as was done with Maemo 5?!

    The frame rates are much faster. It is only in the video that they seem slow.
