Today we learn through the Twitter account The magic forest A playable version of Nintendo 64’s Dinosaur Planet has been released online! Aiming to save Nintendo Sports, the team will be purchased from a Swedish collector from December 2000.
Dinosaur Planet Nintendo 64 has been canceled in order to transfer its development to the Nintendo GameCube. The game was finally released as Star Fox Adventures in 2002 and was the last project to be developed by the rare Four Nintendo.
A ROM of the game is available for download via this link. If you have a, the game plays great on the console Flash card, But slightly less through an emulator (graphic issues and some slowdowns).
Not much was known about the dinosaur planet at Nintendo 64. Development reportedly began shortly after the release of Didi Cong Racing. The Nintendo 64 is rarely designed to use an expansion park and a 64MB cartridge to push it to its limit.
The game was launched during E3 2000 to introduce the character of the hero Saber and Crystal to the general public. When he saw that Saber Fox looked like McLeod, Shigeru Miyamoto decided to change the game to release it under the Star Fox license.
With the leak of the Nintendo 64 version, we learn that the transition to the Star Fox game began long before Nintendo switched development to the GameCube.
