The Nintendo 64 is a fifth generation home console created and manufactured by Nintendo. It was originally released in Japan and North America in 1996 and then in Europe and Australia in 1997. The console notably does not feature any Metroid games, although Samus Aran does appear as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros.. The idea of a Metroid 64 has been mentioned before, but the game never entered production.
