The developer behind the Nesbox console emulator has released its Windows 10 UWP app. It allows people to play old Nintendo and Sega console ROMs on Windows 10 PCs, Windows 10 Mobile phones, and even the Microsoft HoloLens.
The emulator does require you to be on the Windows 10 Anniversary Update.

Support for Xbox Controller on Mobile!

Perhaps the biggest news, however, is those on Windows 10 Mobile and actually pair - and use - the new Bluetooth Xbox One S controller with this emulator.

While the on-screen overlays remain we were able to use an Xbox controller to play all our old favorites with ease. The Bluetooth Xbox One S controller also works with Windows 10 for PC and HoloLens (which we're trying out right now).

The Nesbox app is designed to work with ROMs for Nintendo's older consoles like the NES, Super Nintendo, and GameBoy Color/Advanced games. Sega Genesis game ROMS are also supported. In theory, Nesbox should also work for the Xbox One console as well, but at the moment it looks like it is not yet been approved by Microsoft.

As a public service, we will point out that downloading ROMs for games is considered to be illegal in most parts of the world. For free games that are in the public domain (non-copyright infringing) please head to PDRoms Homebrew for support.

Update: We can confirm it also works on HoloLens
