Opening N64 files

Did your computer fail to open a N64 file? We explain what N64 files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your N64 files.

What is a N64 file?

Files that contain the .n64 file extension are ROM image files. These files contain a Nintendo 64 video game. The Nintendo N64 was a popular gaming system that was distributed by Nintendo in the late 1990's.

A file with an .n64 file suffix contains an exact copy of a Nintendo 64 game, exactly as the game was stored on the game's original cartridge.

The N64 ROM image files allow a user to play an N64 game on their computer instead of the actual N64 device. In order to do so however, the user must have the proper emulation software installed on their hard drive.

Try a universal file viewer

In addition to the products listed above, I would suggest that you try a universal file viewer like Free File Viewer. It can open over 200 different types of files - and very likely yours too! Download Free File Viewer.
