The Nintendo GameCube (Japanese: ニンテンドーゲームキューブ Nintendo GameCube) is the sixth generation Nintendo console. The console was released in 2001 as a successor to the Nintendo 64. It is also a predecessor to the Wii.

There were no EarthBound series games released for the Nintendo GameCube, with the only EarthBound related game being Super Smash Bros. Melee, which features Ness as a playable character and Onett and Fourside as stage.


The system is Nintendo's second console to display 3D graphics. The controllers are similar to the Nintendo 64's except it has two grips instead of three. The controler features the standard A and B buttons, L and R shoulder buttons, a purple Z button above the R button, a normal analog stick, a C analog stick, a d-pad, X and Y buttons and a start button. Like its predecessor it supports up to four player.

The GameCube does not have built in memory but uses memory cards that hold the saved data. The user can freely move, copy, and delete data from the memory cards. If the user wants to play GameCube game on Wii, the data from the memory card must be needed. The memory cards have different memory capacities and are mainly made by third-party companies, not by the official company.

Three cards were officially released: a gray one that supports 59 blocks, a black one that supports 251 blocks, and a white one that supports 1019 blocks.
