N64 Magazine
was a British magazine whose subject-matter concerned the Nintendo 64, upon launching in April 1997. The magazine underwent a change of name pursuant to the imminent launch of the Nintendo Gamecube, assuming the title NGC Magazine in the sixtieth issue in order to reflect the change in principal subject-matter.

N64 Magazine is deemed the successor to Super Play, from which it sourced myriad talents and features. The successor to NGC Magazine was NGamer, which developed into Nintendo Gamer in its seventieth issue.
