Accessories

Nintendo released a number of add-ons and accessories for the N64, including the Expansion Pak that added some much needed extra memory to the console, a Controller Pak for saving game data and a Rumble Pak for, well, adding vibration to the N64’s joypad.

The Games

Significant N64 games included Super Mario 64, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Zelda: Majora’s Mask and 007 GoldenEye.

Although the 64DD was a commercial failure and was never sold outside of Japan, a number of interesting titles were released on the format, including F-Zero X Expansion Kit and Kyojin no Doshin 1 (later re-released on the GameCube as Doshin the Giant)
