Super Mario 64 is a 3D platformer game for the Nintendo 64. This game was one of two launch titles for the Nintendo 64, along with Pilotwings 64, which helped drive initial sales of the console. To this day, it has sold over 11 million copies, and is the best selling Nintendo 64 game ever. It is also the second most popular game on the Wii's Virtual Console.
Super Mario 64 was originally in development for the Super Famicom, but was moved to the Nintendo 64 after system limitations and the era of the SNES began closing. Though it was not the first 3-D platforming game, it revolutionized the genre, with many games soon following its formula using it as a sort of benchmark. It is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest and important games of all time.
A version of the game was released in Japan on July 18, 1997, that included Rumble Pak support. This is the same as the International release of the game, as it retains all of the glitch fixes as well as graphical and sound changes. The only differences other than one voice clip are the language being changed back to Japanese and the Rumble Pak support.
A remake of Super Mario 64 was released for the Nintendo DS entitled Super Mario 64 DS in 2004. The remake had various differences from the original game such as Yoshi, Wario, and Luigi becoming as playable characters. There was also a sequel planned called Super Mario 64 2 for the Nintendo 64DD, but became cancelled, due to the 64DD's commercial failure.
