Nintendo looks almost certain to follow up the success of the NES Mini and SNES Mini with a micro-sized version of another of its hugely popular consoles: the Nintendo 64.
Rumours have been circulating for months suggesting an official announcement concerning the Nintendo 64 Mini is on the way. Like the NES Mini and SNES Mini before it, the console was expected to come complete with controllers and a range of built-in games.
loaded previously offered up a list of the classic titles we wanted to see built-in to the new version of the console which included classics like Goldeneye and Mario Kart 64.
But now fans have been given a possible glimpse of the games that will feature on the new version of the N64 following an online blunder by the good folk over at Nintendo.
According to a post on the SNES Classic Mini Reddit page, a list of the titles most likely to feature on the N64 Mini has been discovered online.
One eagle-eyed fan spotted that the Nintendo.co.uk website currently lists 19 online game manuals for a variety of classic Nintendo 64 games.
The titles list as follows:
• 1080° Snowboarding
• Bomberman™ 64
• Donkey Kong 64
• Excitebike 64
• F-Zero X
• Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards
• Mario Golf
• Mario Kart 64
• Mario Party 2
• Mario Tennis
• Paper Mario
• Pokémon Snap
• Sin and Punishment
• Star Fox 64
• Super Mario 64
• The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask
• The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
• Wave Race 64
• Yoshi’s Story
Now, eagle-eyed fans will be quick to notice a couple of glaring omissions.
There’s no Super Smash Bros. or Diddy Kong Racing, though the biggest absentee is undoubtedly Goldeneye.
Far and away the best game on the console, Goldeneye may be absent due to the fact it has been remade and re-released for a raft of next generation consoles since the N64 was released.
Perhaps it’s simply too advanced for the capabilities of the Nintendo 64 mini? Either way, fans are not going to be happy.
It’s not the only other console Nintendo is looking to resurrect though, with plans already afoot to resurrect the classic Game Boy for a whole new generation of Mario fans.
