The Nintendo 64, often abbreviated to N64, was a home console made by Nintendo with an emphasis on 3D games, introducing features such as analog sticks on the controller and four controller ports built in to the system. The system used cartridges, but using the 64DD add-on players could play much larger games off of proprietary magnetic disks. The 64DD add-on was planned to release worldwide, but ultimately only released in Japan and received limited support. It was succeeded by the Nintendo GameCube.
Only one game on the system included any kind of direct reference to Balloon Fight, being Dōbutsu no Mori, later released worldwide on the GameCube as Animal Crossing. In the game, the player could find Famicoms as furniture items in several ways, which could include one of several playable versions of Famicom games on them, such as Balloon Fight.
