I was thinking of making a physical NX console with a Raspberry Pi 0, and was wondering if I could get some details on things like screen size and resolution, and whether I use an actual cartridge system, or just make it connect to the internet and download programs?
I was thinking of using a three position slide switch for system shutdown, sleep mode, and power on.

Screen size and specs are on the manual;
"Screen: 160x128 pixels, 60 Hz"
I don't know if this is what you are looking for but...

the theoretical console uses cartridges, and, probably inspired by traditional consoles, i don't think it can connect to the internet

I figured out the resolution earlier, but all the displays I could find were like 1.7”...
But thanks for the tip! I will check the manual.

I had an idea:
I buy an old Game Boy Color/Advance off eBay, take it apart, an then I’ll have almost all the parts I need! Screen, d-pad, a+b buttons, et cetera.

Yes but this idea is too good ; there's start and select instead of pause ... GBC is better for NX because it has a similar hardware ...
EDIT : Woo I did markdown it works for the first time

Ah, okay, but would GBC have all the necessary colours for NX? It also has a four-layer display, when the virtual NX console only has two... would that be a problem?
Also 👏👏 for markdown
