One of the biggest leaps Nintendo ever made as a company was with its first true console capable of advanced polygonal graphics: the Nintendo 64. Launched back in 1996, the humble system paved the way for now legendary titles like Super Mario 64 and Ocarina of Time.
Now, Math Manent, a huge fan of the system, has created a Kickstarter to fund an adaptation of his Nintendo 64 Anthologie, which will be translated from French into English and adjusted to fit the requirements of the British and American markets. He is asking for €50,000, which equates to $56,888.
The Nintendo 64 Anthology has 372 pages, with contents including a look back at the system’s lifespan, a summary of each and every Nintendo 64 game, and even interviews with people who worked on iconic titles, such as Goldeneye and the infamous Superman 64. Every limited edition console is also featured, alongside accessories and cancelled games that never saw the light of day.
Two editions of the book will be made available: Classic and Collectors, the latter of which comes with a unique cover and slipcase. Another set will also be made available, featuring the Collectors edition of the book and a box-art supplement featuring the cover art of every game around the world. Only 500 copies of the latter will be made available to backers.
Finally, 5 lucky backers will be able to get their hands on a stylish Zelda-themed Nintendo 64, but at the time of writing it seems like they’re all spoken for.
