Editor's Note: This spectacular resource was created by Lithium in 2012. In documenting JP/US/EU releases, this list does not include two other generally-recognized N64 console variants, the ANA (an All Nippon Airlines promotion; charcoal grey with an "ANA" logo expansion lid cover) and the Hyndai Comboy 64 (a charcoal grey console for release in Korea), nor does it list the Gradiente/Playtronic Nintendo 64 (released in Brazil without any console modification).

Here are all 16 Official Worldwide N64 Consoles known thus far:



I have attempted to rank them in increasing order of rarity:

1. Charcoal Black Original All


2. Jungle Green USA / EUR / AUS


3. Ice Blue USA / EUR / AUS


4. Fire Orange USA / EUR / AUS


5. Grape Purple / Midnight Blue All


6. Smoke Black / Clear Gray All


7. Watermelon Red USA / EUR


8. Pokemon Blue / Yellow USA / EUR


9. Clear Blue / White EUR / JAP


10. Clear Red / White (JAP) JAP


11. Gold NA / JAP


12. Pokemon Battle Set Blue / Yellow EUR / AU


13. Pikachu Blue / Yellow JAP


14. Pikachu Orange / Yellow JAP


15. Daiei Hawks Clear Bright Orange / Black JAP


16. Jusco 30th Anniversary Clear Black / White JAP

Did I get anything wrong region wise? I know there has been speculation about the Smoke and Watermelon consoles being in Australia, can anyone confirm or deny this?

Im assuming you aren't counting box variants? Like the Banjo Kazooie one, or the Star Wars one?

Not sure about region availability, but this is one awesome photo and a great source of reference for any fan of the Nintendo 64, very cool Lithium.

Not totally sure about the smoke and watermelon being released in Australia. I know for sure that consoles turn up on the Australia eBay all the time. Weather or not these are from Europe or they are from Australia is unknown. My guess would be that they have been released in Australia, just because of the amount of these consoles that are for sale at any one time on eBay.

As stated previous by several folks... but here is proof. I'm not 100% certain but I think the "Battle Set" was strictly only in the UK. What does the part number say? Or any of the information on the back of the box? That can help us validate if that release is in AUS or UK.





Anoter comment: The Atomic Purple bundle doesn't have any letters next to it. But just in case, the Atomic bundle had a sort of equivalent in AUS called the "Twin Controller Pack" (image below). But I understand this topic was strictly to identify the different consoles and that pack is just a regular console inside ^_^

Europe didn't get a gold console. Only a regular grey console with a gold controller.

Fantastic pic though Lithium. When I visit Canada (erm could be a long time yet) I am defiantely coming to visit your house! and inspect your collection :-)

Yes, Europe didn't get the gold console, but wasn't there a bundle with a golden controller (at least in the UK or so)?

Found a picture here...
