This Browser 3D NES Emulator Might Show The Future of Retro Emulation

By channeling the power of absolute genius, Tran Vu Truc of Hanoi has crafted an amazing emulator. Somehow, this browser-based (Firefox-only for now) emulator can process the 2D sprites of NES games into 3D, making for a much different visual aesthetic. 

From the video, it seems like the simpler the graphics, the better the 3D effect is. Mega Man and Castlevania look especially good, but games like Super Mario Bros. 3 that used a few more visual tricks just don't seem to run right. You can try it for yourself here with your own legal ROMs. And that's what you're going to be using, right? Nothing illegal here

Check out the emulator in action below!
