Back in the day, there was nothing better than popping in your favorite cartridge and spending hours on the Nintendo 64. No matter how long you actually played the console, there were likely some hidden features you had no clue the console could do. Learn about these various tricks and consider dusting off the old thing to try them out for yourself!

If you love the Nintendo 64 controllers or emulating classic games on the computer, then you can actually use the original controller designs. A USB adapter allows two controllers to be plugged into the same USB port and can be used for a variety of games. The Nintendo 64 and Game Boy Color had little interaction until a Pokemon game gave players a way to play Game Boy on a full-sized TV. The original NES power glove was a big bust, but that didn’t stop developers from creating a rare glove design for the N64. The clunky accessory wasn’t used for any exclusive game, but did provide some fun. The N64 expansion pak was essential for some games, but it also added a lot enhancements to other titles. Online gaming was not used on the standard N64, but players who got their hands on the N64DD could actually go online with various games. The N64 only plays N64 cartridges, but a third-party accessory allowed players to play both older NES and Super Nintendo games they still have laying around. Special versions of the N64 controller were actually used as television remotes. If you didn’t like the controller, the N64 also released a special mouse and keyboard package for the 64DD. A lot of countries got exclusive N64 games and you could get your hands on them thanks to a special region-free add-on. Online access and email could be obtained through a special N64 add-on known as Sharkwire. Watch to see all of these hidden things your Nintendo 64 could do!

    "Things you didn't know your N64 could do" .
    1 has nothing to do with the N64 at all – being nothing more than a controller adapter. 1 referral to a feature of 2 games – and EVERY single N64 owner is fully aware of it, 4 referrals to third party devices, 1 referral to an add-on that was REQUIRED for some of the best games on the system (and again every single N64 owner is aware of it), 2 referrals to a peripheral that was only ever released in Japan -and a referall to a deal Nintendo made with a hotel chain for product placement.

    Essentially there is NOTHING in this list that N64 owners didn't know their system could do.

    Wouldn't having a USB to connect the controller to a computer be something cool the USB can do and not the N64?

    A tablet can download n64 consoles and n64 roms as well, and the controllers can be tapped on to play, it works fine, but there is no L button!!!!
