TRAILER
 

 


 

INTRODUCTION

September 29th, 2016, marks the Nintendo 64’s twentieth anniversary. To celebrate the birth of this incredibly avant-gardist machine, Matt Manent has written the most comprehensive and remarkable book about this legendary console. Over 400 pages long, this book inventories and chronicles the entire game library (388 games sold in Japan, the US, Europe, and Australia), sifts through the canceled games, accessories, collector’s editions, and, of course, every Nintendo 64 version and bundle. By interviewing the people involved at the time – Martin Hollis (Rare – GoldenEye), Eric Caen (Titus – Superman; acknowledged as one of the machine’s worst games) – Matt Manent has worked to make this book an encyclopedia honoring the Nintendo 64 we’ve all come to love.

 


COMPLETE SOFTWARE LIBRARY

A total of 388 official titles were released on the Nintendo 64, and a specific amount of page space is dedicated to each one based on its quality and reputation. For example, GoldenEye has earned itself a full page, whereas titles of lesser renown will be covered on a half-page. While most players have played or at least heard of the best titles (GoldenEye, Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, Lylat Wars / Star Fox 64, Perfect Dark, The Legend Of Zelda, etc.), many other less well-known games deserve our attention too. This book presents all 388 published games with detailed information including their release date, developer, publisher, genre, rarity index, and a rating out of five.

 


HARDWARE

In this technical section, we uncover the secrets behind Nintendo 64’s hardware: its technical characteristics, connectors, its heart beating to the rhythm of silicon. Here we establish a precise overview of the Nintendo 64, through its accessories, controllers, and cartridges. This section also includes all the versions sold, collector’s editions, and the various bundles distributed around the world.

 


COLLECTOR’S GUIDE

These pages, specially designed for collectors, inventory all the games released on the Nintendo 64, in each territory (Japan, North America, Europe, and Australia). There are checkboxes by each game, so that you can keep a precise inventory of your collection and quickly see which games you own and those you don't… Yet!

 


COLLECTOR’S EDITION

Nintendo 64 Anthology Collector’s Edition features a limited edition cover. The book will be numbered and housed in its own, handmade slipcase. In addition to the handmade slipcase, exclusive cover, and limited, numbered print-run, the Nintendo 64 Anthology Collector’s Edition includes 24 additional pages with the best international N64 advertisements, guaranteed to transport you around the world.
