It has been frequently requested of Andrew and me to post our predictions/hopes/dreams of what would be on a hypothetical Nintendo 64 Classic Console.We both remembered that we have discussed this in the past, and Andrew was kind enough to find that discussion in the 69th episode of Molehill Mountain.
There really isn’t a lot to go on at this time about such a system. If one does arise, there is not likely to be more than 15-20 games on it. Andrew and I both kept our lists to a maximum of 15 titles. One thing that would make such a system tricky is that the it supported up to four controllers and the button layout is very different from modern Nintendo controllers.
Anyway, on to our lists. Unique titles are green.
|Andrew’s List||EZK’s List|
|Blast Corps||Harvest Moon 64|
|Excitebike 64||Killer Instinct Gold|
|Goldeneye||Mario Golf or Mario Tennis|
|Harvest Moon 64||Mario Kart 64|
|Mario Kart 64||Mario Party 3|
|Paper Mario||Paper Mario|
|Pokemon Snap||Perfect Dark|
|Star Fox 64||Pokemon Snap|
|Star Wars: Rogue Squadron||Star Fox 64|
|Super Mario 64||Super Mario 64|
|Super Smash Bros.||Super Smash Bros.|
|The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask||The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask|
|The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time||The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time|
|Waverace 64||Yoshi’s Story|
Andrew and I both had very similar lists. Most of the first party titles are a safe bet. Some third party games are unlikely due to licensing issues. Some are unlikely due to Rare being a part of Microsoft now. But we can always hope.
