Post Nintendo's own secret SNES emulator
This is kind of amazing. If the description there is true, Nintendo was at some point developing their own SNES emulator for PPC Macs. Looks like it's from the 90s.

Probably not surprising, considering that the Gamecube used a PPC.

Also Nintendo's investment in other Apple hardware for development.
Granted, the IIgs and PowerMacintosh are about as alike as two very dissimilar things, but still!
