History of the Nintendo Wiki

The Nintendo Wiki was founded in January of 2005. It quickly became inactive and was merged with GameInfo, though due to popular demand was brought back in March 2006. In December 2007, the website, which was facing difficulties with dealing with spambots, merged with Nintendo Wiki.

Shortly thereafter, shut down. Today the Wiki has 33,907 articles and is growing faster than ever before.

Nintendo GameCube

The Nintendo GameCube (Japanese: ニンテンドーゲームキューブ), officially abbreviated GCN in North America and Europe or NGC in Japan, is Nintendo’s sixth-generation home console. Codenamed “Dolphin” during development, the console was released on September 14, 2001 in Japan, November 18, 2001 in North America, May 3, 2002 in Europe, and May 17, 2002 in Australia. The system features a more compact design with four controller ports, a controller with an ergonomic design, small but large-capacity discs, connectivity with the Game Boy Advance and a form of online play. In 2006, it was succeeded by Wii, which also features ports for most GameCube hardware as well as compatibility for its software on original models. Nintendo discontinued manufacturing in 2007.

The Nintendo GameCube was released in four colors. At launch, only the Indigo and Jet Black models were available. Later, in November 2002, a limited edition Platinum system was launched. Finally, in Japan only, a “Spice” orange console was released, though controllers of the same color were released in all regions.
