Game Cube Set

The GameCube may be Nintendo's lowest-selling home console to date, but for some it's a special part of the company's history. It was the last occasion when a Nintendo system competed toe-to-toe with contemporaries in terms of raw graphical power, it brought us some absolute classics in its library, and it had a handle. Its controller — and the wireless Wavebird — are also much-loved, especially by Smash Bros. fans.

Like all Nintendo hardware it has its share of fun secrets, too, and the folks over at the Did You Know Gaming? YouTube channel have once again dug out some of these little facts. Some are well known, but others are relatively surprising and particularly cool to know; it's still amazing how many self-referential nods and winks Nintendo includes in its hardware and games.
