FPGA developer Robert Peip (also known as FPGAzumSpass) has just revealed that he's working on an N64 FPGA core for the MiSTer.

Peip is the person responsible for the excellent PlayStation, WonderSwan and Lynx cores for the same platform, as well as several other FPGA projects.

It's still very early days, but he's shown off some progress, demonstrating Mario Kart 64 running in his own emulator, which he will then look to port to the MiSTer as a FPGA core:

Since its inception, the MiSTer project has been the topic of intense speculation, with many suggesting that it wouldn't be capable of replicating 32-bit systems and beyond. The recent arrival of PlayStation and Saturn cores – plus this latest venture from Peip – disproves this train of thought.
