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 iQue Player, the console's Chinese equivalent, in June 2006 as the final game released for it.

Controller Pak[edit]

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. In addition, various games require the Controller Pak for saving, including Doubutsu no Mori, making it the only Nintendo-developed Nintendo 64 game to require the accessory for saving.[1] Additionally, the Controller Pak is used to travel to other towns. 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.
