Nintendo GameCube celebrates 10 years in Europe

Ten years ago, Nintendo launched its fourth desktop console, Nintendo GameCube, in Europe. Yesterday, the machine completed a decade.

Then I came to the shops under a price of 200 euros and in two colors, black and purple. Under the launch catalog we find titles such as Luigi's Mansion, the impressive Wave Race: Blue Storm, with its incredible physics, and Rogue Squadron 2: Rogue Leader, among others.

After an encouraging start in the UK (75,000 consoles were distributed in the first two sales days before the 40,000 PS2), the console ended its government in an inevitable third, before the dominance of PS2 and the first Xbox. In its last days of glory, GameCube is being sold to sell over 21 million units.

It was Luigi's reaction after he realized the launch of GameCube was in his hands.

The Nintendo cube got a title from Mario, Super Mario Sunshine, a few months after the release. The console was the premiere of saga that is currently consolidated as Pikmin or Animal Crossing, the launch of which has been made in Japan in the last days of Nintendo 64.

One of the biggest controversies they provoked The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker. His artist style has not convinced the users, although it has been widely criticized as one of the deliveries with a more marked personality.

Retro Studios also renewed the Metroid series by offering two games that have privileged the first-person perspective and one of the deepest experiences on the console.

Perhaps the heartfelt moment of his life cycle was when Microsoft bought Rare (something very detailed in this article), shortly after the launch of Star Fox Adventures. Fortunately, it served to strengthen a closer relationship with Capcom that brought our essentials such as P.N.03, Viewtiful Joe, Killer 7 and Resident Evil 4.

So was the approach of the two companies that started to make rumors claiming that Nintendo was willing to buy Capcom, a myth that eventually ended up on internet forums.

Each Nintendo console had its own choice of foreign peripherals, and with GameCube it was no different. Besides the compatibility of the console with Game Boy Advance, the internet adapter also features games like Phantasy Star Online, the microphone for Mario Party 6 or Odama and the life-size bongos of Donkey Konga.
