Celebrate Mario Day By Checking Out The Smallest Nintendo 64 Console In The World!

Gaming YouTuber and modder celebrates "Mario Day" by setting a Guinness World Record with the world's smallest Nintendo 64 console!

Guinnes World Records is celebrating Mario Day (March 10th) by revealing the world's smallest Nintendo 64 console! Measuring a mere 3.3 in x 4.64 in x 1.77 in the wee console can fit in your pocket and beats the previous record which has been left untouched since 2015!

The little Nintendo 64 was created by Gunnar Turnquist of Waltham MA. You might know him by his gaming YouTube and modder handle "GmanModz".

“I started learning electronics when I was 13 years old and when I saw online that people were building their own portable consoles I thought it was the coolest thing ever and I had to try it. There have been many friends and teachers in my life that have helped me along the way. High school teachers that became interested in and guiding me through my projects,” says Gunnar.

The Nintendo 64 was one of the original home gaming consoles in the mid-90s, and one of the last to use cartridges as its primary storage device for playing games. They usually measure a height of 2.87” (72.9 mm), width of 10.23” (259.8 mm), depth of 7.48” (190 mm), making them quite bulky. This makes resizing the console no easy task.

You can see the entire build, with commentary from Gunnar, in the video below. Make sure and check it out!

March 10th - "Mario Day" - is an annual celebration of the entire Mario franchise. Nintendo officially begain embraching the holiday in 2016 and usually celebrates by promoting Mario games and holding Mario-themed events.

Why March 10th? When you remove the spaces from "Mar10", it looks a lot like "Mario", hence the March 10th holiday date!
