A collector opens a new Nintendo 64DD development kit and shares images of the rarity
As soon as he received it, himself a collector decided to document it so that it would go down in history and not be forgotten.
A private video game collector recently contacted Shane Luis, who runs the YouTube channel Rerez. In this, a series of videos created by himself, he is primarily responsible for making reviews about videogames, although sometimes things like this come to him Nintendo 64DD development kit.
And this has been because the kit is new and in the box, so thanks to this we can get a slight idea of what it felt like when in the 90s, many of these developers reached rare collectibles. We are going to leave you a part of the process inserted directly from your Twitter, because it has no waste.
East 64DD it was a complement so Nintendo 64 could expand its memory with recordable discs, so it could compete with consoles of the time such as PlayStation. But project was exclusive to Japan and it never represented a major change between developers and consumers, so it’s very rare to see one; only 9 DD games were made between 1999 and 2000 before Nintendo put the project aside.
In the main image you can see at the beginning there is a sample of this development kit, but the rest can be found in the Twitter thread created by Luis, or directly from the Archive.org that he created with higher quality. Of course, he himself has advised that all images, in one place or another, can be used without problem.
When combined all together you’re ready to start developing 64DD games!
Unfortunately this system was never used and the 64DD platform failed to take off. If the 64DD was a success who knows what might have happened! pic.twitter.com/GWDjC2J3GA

As always happens, despite the fact that times advance and with them the consoles, the pieces of history will never be lost because there will always be collectors preserving them. Even more, people like Shane Luis who bring them to light.
