The Nintendo 64 (officially abbreviated as N64, stylized as NINTENDO64) is a home video game console created by Nintendo. Named after its 64-bit central processing unit, the console was released in 1996 as the successor to the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Doubutsu no Mori, the first title in the Animal Crossing series, was released for the Nintendo 64 in Japan on April 14, 2001, as the final first-party game on the platform, and it was later released for the iQue Player, the console's Chinese equivalent, in June 2006, as the final game released for the system.

A Controller Pak

The Controller Pak is an accessory for the Nintendo 64 that plugs into the back of the console's controller and serves as a memory card, offering 32 KB of storage (represented as 123 "pages") split between 16 save data slots (referred to as "notes"). Doubutsu no Mori uses the Controller Pak to save travel data, allowing the player to visit other towns, and for saving letters. Some copies of Doubutsu no Mori included a Controller Pak, which contains a letter from Shigeru Miyamoto and grab bag featuring two Famicom games and a K.K. Slider song.
