The Nintendo GameCube (ニンテンドーゲームキューブ, Nintendou Geimukyuubu), often abbreviated as either NGC or GCN, is Nintendo's fourth home video game console. It is the successor to the Nintendo 64 and predecessor to the Wii. The Nintendo GameCube is the first Nintendo console to use discs as its game type (mini CD's, 8cm in diameter). In addition, the GameCube also introduced a variety of connectivity options to Nintendo consoles, and was the third Nintendo console, after the Nintendo 64DD, to support online play officially, via the Nintendo GameCube Broadband Adapter and Modem Adapter. It also enabled connectivity to the Game Boy Advance to access exclusive features of certain games or to use the portable system as a controller for the Game Boy Player.

The console was released on September 14, 2001 in Japan, November 18, 2001 in North America, May 3, 2002 in Europe, and May 17, 2002 in Australia. The GameCube sold 21.74 million units worldwide. Nintendo discontinued the Nintendo GameCube in mid-2007. The GameCube's games are also backwards-compatible with its successor, the Nintendo Wii.
