N64 Magazine Issue 6

September 1997
Release Date: 20 Aug 1997
Pages: 100
Editor: Jonathan Davies


N64 Magazine went RPG mad this issue, with a feature including all the forthcoming games, especially Zelda 64 and Holy Magic Century.  There wasn’t much in the way of decent new games this issue, but Starfox got a US release and Mario 64 and Wave Race got rumble pack re-releases in Japan. “I’m the best” had an expansion in this issue, moving from the mailbox into a feature of its own, and invited readers to send their scores in for a range of N64 games. Tim took a deep look into some of the classic 16-bit games in this issue, and specifically how they were being reinvented for the N64. As well as some speculative ones, such as Street Fighter 64, definitely over optimistic of it’s chances!
