Unreleased Nintendo 64 Platformer '40 Winks' Set For Physical Cartridge Release Via Kickstarter

40-Winks-Nintendo-64-KickstarterIn 1999 GT Interactive released 40 Winks on the Sony PlayStation. This somewhat forgotten 3D platformer arrived at a time when just about everyone was experimenting with the genre, so it comes as no surprise that the Nintendo 64 port of the game was cancelled. Nearly two decades later and the retro publisher Piko Interactive has taken to Kickstarter to finally gift the game its much anticipated debut on the 64-bit system.

Although the fundraiser for this long-lost title was only started a day ago, 40 Winks for the Nintendo 64 has already raised twice its original funding goal. Sitting proud at £28,296, retro gamers and collectors have been pledging $8 for a digital download of the game, $40 for a physical cartridge, and upwards of $55 to secure boxed copies.

Having already been hit by a resounding success, Piko Interactive have also announced a stretch goal of $60,000 which will see the arrival of strictly limited 40 Winks branded Nintendo 64 control pads.
