    News about a Nintendo 64 app for Xbox One emerged this week on Reddit. It apparently let you play games from the classic system, including Super Mario 64 and Mario Kart 64.

    As reported by Eurogamer, the app is called Win64e10. It was actually released over the weekend, according to people on Reddit, though buzz didn't really build until days later.

If you knew the app's name, however, you could apparently find it.

    Microsoft has now stepped in to pull down the app. People on Reddit report that it still works for those who have it installed, though it has some issues that future patches could have addressed. You can see a YouTube video of how the app works here.

    An Xbox One update that came out this year for Xbox One introduced support for the Universal Windows Platform, which basically made it possible for Windows Store apps to run on Xbox One as well.
