  • Random These N64 Box Art Covers Have Not Aged Well

    In fact, most of them looked terrible at the time

    We've all got plenty of fond memories of Nintendo 64 - which is why we're excited for the inevitable N64 Mini and its third-party friends - but that doesn't mean we look back on every game with a smile. In fact, just thinking about some those box art covers makes us a little queasy. Over on N64...

    Review F-Zero X

    Classic game, now with added flaw

    There was some F-Zero-related DLC for Mario Kart 8 and a mini-game in Nintendo Land, but disappointingly the Wii U has not proven to be the console where the series made its return with a brand spanking new game. Whilst hopes for a new entry in the series must now switch to future hardware, Wii U-owning fans of...

  • Video Let's See How That Xbox One N64 Emulator Held Up

    Gone but not forgotten

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOUCSIaFutg Despite the recently infamous Win64e10 emulator being removed, we managed to download it before Microsoft pulled it from the Xbox One Store and put it through its paces. The blurb promised it to be the most powerful N64 emulator on Windows 10, but if it runs anything like it does...

  • News Nintendo 64 Emulator Unceremoniously Yanked From Xbox One Store

    Double quick

    Yesterday we reported on the fact that a Nintendo 64 emulator was available for download on Microsoft's Xbox One console. Win64e10 - which retailed for $9.99 - allowed Xbox One owners to run N64 ROMs on their consoles by copying the games to a OneDrive account and loading them into the emulator. The app actually went live over the...

  • News The Xbox One Now Has A Nintendo 64 Emulator

    But for how long?

    Given the recent fuss surrounding a NES emulator on the Xbox One - and the resultant "will it, won't it" saga - it's perhaps a little surprising that you can now boot up your Xbox One system and download an N64 emulator. Win64e10 - a modified version of the Nintendo 64 emulator Mupen64plus - was previously available on Windows...

  • News Lost Nintendo 64 Racer Rev Limit Rolls Out Of The Garage

    The Gran Turismo beater that never was

    Seta is a name that will be familiar to SNES owners thanks to the firm's well-recieved Exhaust Heat / F1 Race of Champions titles and the Castlevania-inspired Nosferatu. During the N64 era the firm pledged its support to Nintendo with a raft of titles including Wild Choppers (Chopper Attack in the west) and a...

  • Hardware Classics Nintendo 64

    Will you still love me when I'm 64?

    To mark the 20th birthday of Nintendo's 64-bit wonder we're republishing this feature on the console, which originally went live on the site in December 2014. The Nintendo 64 is a console which divides opinions, even today. For some, it was an unforgivable fall from grace after the dizzying heights of the SNES;...

  • Video Here's What It Felt Like To Get Hold Of Super Mario 64 Early, 20 Years Ago

    Scorching

    The N64 turns 20 this year, as does Super Mario 64 - one of the most notable launch titles in the history of video games. Those of us who were lucky enough to own this console at the time of release were rewarded with one of the most riveting gaming experiences of all time, but iretrogamer.com boss Tyler Esposito was even more privliedged...

    My dad worked for Nintendo

    Thanks to the internet the storm of misinformation that swirled throughout friendship groups and magazines are largely a thing of the past, with a few exceptions. There was something strangely appealing about all the whispers you'd hear on the breeze about how you could unlock various unbelievable content in various games,...

  • Feature The Making Of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter

    Good dino, nice dino

    When it comes to the Nintendo 64 and first-person-shooters, there are two titles that have become synonymous with the genre: GoldenEye 007 and Perfect Dark. While these classics rightfully deserve their place among the greats, the Turok series has largely fallen into obscurity, which is a crying shame when you consider that...

  • News ENKKO to Restore the N64 Controller to Its Former Glory with New Kickstarter Campaign

    Keeping the generation alive

    While renowned for popularising the incorporation of analogue joysticks into modern video game controllers, the Nintendo 64 Controller's joystick is, in fact, its biggest flaw. Those who played their N64 extensively back in its heyday will remember that the stick would become loose after extended use, so much so that it...

    Review 1080° Snowboarding

    Shreddin’ the gnar

    Originally released for the Nintendo 64 in 1998, 1080° Snowboarding was Nintendo's attempt to bring the snowboarding experience to its home console. It did a good job: six courses provide a variety of thrills as you hop on a board and tackle the snowy slopes. Five riders of varying abilities and several boards are available and...

  • News Shiny Founder Dave Perry Wasn't Keen On The N64 From The Start

    "He was declaring quite loudly that he was never going to support N64"

    The Nintendo 64 is one of the most beloved consoles of the '90s, and played host to some truly amazing games, such as Goldeneye 007, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64 and Star Fox 64. However, compared to the incredible commercial succe

    Review Mario Golf

    Serious Golf for Serious Plumbers

    You could argue that the best part of many of the Mario sports titles is that they bring goofy, lighthearted aspects to those pastimes. Games like Super Mario Strikers and Mario Hoops: 3 on 3 all make dramatic changes to the sports they're portraying, capturing the attention of players who might not be interested in...

    Review Sin and Punishment

    On the rails and off the hip

    It's no secret that many Japanese titles never see the light of day overseas. Countless games have been unreleased for fear of lack of public interest and fear of bad. This was the initial reason Sin and Punishment, released in 2000, never surfaced on the Nintendo 64 outside of Japan. The hectic shoot'em up only made...

  • Gallery Marvel At This Woodgrain Styled N64

    Taking retro to it's logical conclusion

    We've seen some lovely console mods over the years here at Nintendo Life, but this one from our Texas-based reader Marshall Clark was too good not to share. While the classic N64 design had some nice curves and came in a range of colours during its lifespan, Marshall has given it a woodgrain makeover which...

  • Feature The Making Of Body Harvest

    Former DMA Design staffer Steve Hammond spills the beans

    "Development Hell" is a well-known term for the painful gestation of a Hollywood movie. Whether modern AAA games suffer the same problems from concept to release, I don't know personally but I am certain that they do. I am currently reading Tales From Development Hell, and whilst the movie...

  • Feature The Best Pro Wrestling Games That the N64 Has to Offer

    We're tapping in, not out.

    The thought of a modern pro wrestling game these days is often coupled with an eye-roller. They've become as iterative as most sports games released on an annual basis - such as FIFA and Madden - but certainly have far less to offer than the examples just mentioned. What we're left with is a game that's ever-so-slightly...
