Nintendo 64, also known and referred as “N64” was launched back in Jun 1996 (Japan release date), it was the answer to Sega Saturn as well as the first and original Sony PlayStation. However, as Nintendo chose to stick with cartridge – making the games to be much more expensive and less room for developer to create immersive games, Nintendo – after being king of console on the last 2 generations: NES and SNES – has to give up its position to the new comer: Sony PlayStation. That doesn’t mean N64 didn’t have good library of games on its arsenal. In fact, there are plenty of great games even when you played them today and many of today successful game franchises, started its path on N64, to name a few: Animal Crossing, Smash Bros., Mario Party.

On its lifetime, Nintendo 64 sold close to 33 million units before getting discontinued on 2002 to make way for its successor, the Nintendo GameCube. N64 also one of the first console to adopt 4 players controller ports on its system, encouraging game makers to create multiplayer games. That’s also the reason why, you can see there are so many multiplayer games, many are 4 players, on Nintendo 64.
