Nintendo 64DD

The 64DD was made as an expansion to the Nintendo 64, allowing the console to use more memory and offering a handful of exclusive games. It saw a brief run in Japan, but never headed overseas. That’s why a new find may end up being very interesting.

Over on the ASSEMbler forums, user “PostedOval” claims to have come across a U.S. version of the 64DD. Although this person shared some photos that seems to indicate that it’s legitimate, we can’t completely say that it’s definitely real. We’ll let you know if there are any other developments pertaining to the situation.

When it was released back in 2003, the first WarioWare title was praised by critics for its innovative manner of transforming a series of minigames into an addictive gauntlet of five-second challenges. The surprise Game Boy Advance hit introduced the world to its unique bite-sized forms of gameplay, a variety of visual styles, a new cast of characters and enka music, but some of its more “innovative” aspects actually originated from earlier Nintendo experiments. It makes sense that a weird game would have a weird history behind it, and in WarioWare’s case it comes from one of the weirdest consoles – the Nintendo 64 Disk Drive.
