According to a recent report from Shack News, the N64 game “Wave Race” first came into the spotlight when it debuted in North America in November 1996.

During its release on the retro Nintendo 64 game console, the Jet Ski game received positive reviews from players of the time and various video game critics.

The 1996 game hasn’t lost its charm decades after it was released to N64 users.

In fact, Shack News stressed in its report that jet ski games are still worth playing today.

Water physics and competitive racing still keep gamers hooked these days. Not to mention the nostalgic vibe it imparts that takes players back to his funky 90’s.

But this time, Switch gamers want a treat, as they can experience a timeless jet ski adventure as long as they subscribe to the Switch Online expansion pack.
