– According to Price Charting, Wave Race 64 is still really affordable, going for just $6 for the loose cart and $10.50 if you want the box and manual included. It’s also available on the Wii virtual consoles, which probably helps keep the cost low.

– As mentioned on the show, Wave Race 64 is a sequel to the original for the Game Boy. The original is pretty cheap as well, about $4 for the cart, but $31 if you want the box and manual, per Price Charting.

– Also mentioned on the show, there doesn’t seem to be any imminent plans for new games in the series. Nintendo renewed the trademark in 2012, but that’s about it.
