ONM Remembered – #154

“Don’t panic.”

from N64 Magazine issue 8 (November 1997)

Nintendo, like FOOLS, printed pre-production screenshots on the back of their game boxes, and have confused the masses! What is with these ballin’ colours? Do I need a button code to get the Feather? Where on earth did this magic metre go? And won’t someone clean the blood out of that man’s safari t-shirt?!

That said, the early footage of Mario Kart 64 is relatively tame compared to other titles. Have you seen the very first screenshots of Super Mario 64? It’s like the game ate everything in the medicine cabinet.
