The Nintendo 64 (N64) is the third home gaming console made by Nintendo to be released internationally. Named for its 64-bit NEC VR4300 processor, it is the last Nintendo console to use traditional cartridges — later Nintendo consoles would use optical discs or proprietary flash memory cards.
Two Zelda games were produced for the N64: Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask.
