Today in History: December 3rd, 1996 – Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire Strikes on the Nintendo 64

Triverse writes, "There was a fair amount of buzz for Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire around the time it was announced, and leading up to release for, the Nintendo 64. For one, this was one of the first third party titles to hit and gamers were eager to see what 3rd parties could do on the new Nintendo wonder system and it was Star Wars (there was also this thing called Episode One coming a few years later).Based on a story that is a background piece between Episode V and Episode VI, Shadows was very careful to not interfere with the cannon that George Lucas and company had going for the franchise."
