As for what I recommend (besides the allmighty Sin and Punishment):
-Bomberman 64 - Arcade Edition
-Bakuretsu Muteki Bangai-Oh
-Virtual Pro Wrestling 2
-Neon Genesis Evangelion
-Susume Taisen Puzzle Dama
-any Puyo Puyo
-any Custom Robo
-Disney Dance Revolution

These are all good titles but most of them are quite expensive :(

Nice! Like I kinda hinted at in the other post, I would've been a whole lot more able to see what you might be missing (if anything) from that list a few years ago... as it is I've totally forgotten about all things N64 in the Japan-only world. I guess Mop posted a link earlier in this thread to some info I had posted up a couple eons ago... might be worth checking out. (I seem to recall like about 89-90 JP-only N64 titles.)

The results after doing some comparison:
1. The games Saikyô Habu Shôgi and Kuiki Uhabi Suigou are the same game - I doubled it on the list, my mistake.
2. I forgot about
-Jikkyou World Soccer: World Cup France '98
-Jikkyou J-League 1999: Perfect Striker 2
-Haruka Naru Augusta Masters 98
-City Tour Granprix: All Japan Grand Touring Car Championship
All these games have some changes (apart from language of course) that differ them from their "western" counterparts (although the last one isn't all THAT different from GT 64 but let's just count it as a jap only release :)
3. I'm not sure what about Choro Q 64 (Penny Racers elsewhere), Rally 99 (Rally Championship 2000 elsewhere), Snow Speeder (Big Mountain 2000 elsewhere) and Super Bowling 64 (Super Bowling elsewhere) - I can't really tell if they can be considered as jap only games...are there enough differences between these versions?
4. Finally - Super Mario 64 and Wave Race 64, the Rumble Pak versions. They came out only in Japan but...what about Castlevanias then? PAL and NTSC Castlevanias for N64 use Controller Pak and don't have the Rumble Pak support, but the japanesee versions don't use the CP (the data is stored on the cart) and they have the Rumble Pak support, as far as I know. So...if we count Super Mario 64 and Wave Race 64 shouldn't we also count both Castlevanias (and maybe some other games that japanesee versions had Rumble Pak support and the western ones did not - if there are any besides Castlevanias).

Good work guys! Yeah, I think we should count the Japanese versions of the Castlevania games as seperate releases if they support the rumble pak... if that does differentiate them from the US/European releases. :)

When we get a definitive list I can move this into the Guides and FAQs section. :)

If I remember rightly, back when Floorcat was compiling a comprehensive list he claimed there to be a total of 396 unique releases worldwide, with 296 total releases in North America (which we have confirmed), 93 Japan-only releases, and 7 PAL-exclusives. I don't know if he included the Rumble Pak versions of games as a Japan-only release, or games which have different names in different regions.

I've not heard of an N64 game titled "Rally Championship 2000". Did you perhaps mean Rally Challenge 2000?

For me, as long as the "game engine" is the same between two versions, it's the same game, so I don't consider the Shindou Edition of Wave Race and Super Mario 64 as "Japan only" games, as I HSV Adventure Racing is the same game than Beetle Adventure Racing (it's exactly the same, except the cars to match better with the Australian market).

We currently have on Nintendo64EVER :
385 different games
200 different games released in Japan, with 89 "Japan only"
297 in the USA, with 49 "USA only"
242 in PAL countries, including 3 "Australia only" releases, and 4 "PAL only"

N64 CIB PAL fullset : 242/242, completed on the 4th December 2009
N64 CIB US fullset : 46/298
N64 CIB JAP fullset : 121/214 (including bundles with accessories)
N64 CIB world variations fullset : 454/1529 (and still discovering new existing ones...)

Would you mind posting your list? I'm fairly certain there is one less than that, so I'm curious what is extra on your list.

After some thought, I have decided that this thread is the best place to post this link. It is the most comprehensive listing of N64 games I have ever seen, hands-down. It lists titles by serial number, meaning that there can be more than one entry for each game, based on which regions it came out in.

The author tells me it is extremely close to being finished, listing-wise, but that there is a lot more work to do on gathering more detailed information on each game. In fact, I plan to help out with box/cart scans of (primarily Australian) games. I would encourage you all to join the fun and help out Martin by uploading scans on the NESWorld forum, or sending them to me in PM so I can MSN them through.

The list is very useful, especially for someone like me who imports a fair few games from the UK and wants to ensure that there isn't an Australian version that I could otherwise have purchased. It's also a way for us to concentrate our efforts and make a comprehensive database.

I am told that the final version of the list will be split up, so the page isn't as long as it currently is. It will also be equipped with a sort function, so you can isolate particular regions etc.

Cheers,
Franklint
