The N64 and Nintendo’s Fall From Grace

UK magazine EDGE charts the grim days of the 1990s
Highly respected UK video game magazine EDGE has posted up a feature on its website about the fall of Nintendo in the mid ‘90s.
It’s been penned by veteran journo Douglass Perry (who actually wrote for Edge’s US sister publication, Next Generation, which is now sadly defunct) and focuses mainly on the torrid time the company had with its N64 console.
To be fair it doesn’t really offer up anything that hasn’t been said before but it makes for an interesting read if you’re not entirely familiar with Nintendo’s troubled past over the previous decade or so.
Part two is up next week apparently, so keep your eyes peeled for that.
