It’s June 23rd, 1996, and the Nintendo 64 has just gone on sale in Japan! That’s right 20 years ago today people first got their hands on the weirdest controller I’ve ever held.
The N64 had it’s work cut out for it. The last big console to use cartridges going up against Sony’s Playstation, even still it was released to some fanfare. With titles like Super Mario 64, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time, and Banjo Kazooie, the N64 holds some of my best childhood memories. Why not remember this classic console and maybe take a few pictures for oak in Pokemon Snap today.
We’ll hold off on the big party until the console is old enough to drink. Until then tell me about your favorite memories of the N64 in the comments. Thanks for stopping by.
