A series of eight games, four of which were unreleased, for the Nintendo 64's 64DD add-on.
A launch game for the 64DD. Similar in many ways to Mario Paint: users could draw or work on in-built images, create small animations, and play a minigame similar to Gnat Attack. Differences include a Pokémon Snap-like mode and the ability to import images from the Game Boy Camera and standard video source (for example VHS) via the N64 Capture Cart. It was available bundled with or without the N64 mouse, which were never sold seperately1).
Talent Studio allow users, through the Capture Cartridge, to import images to texture simple models (think Miis and have them perform actions from defined sets: sports, music, theatre, etc. Created characters are transferable to other games in the series.
The Communication Kit is what allows the Mario Artist series to communicate with RandNet. This allowed the uploading, and exchanging of content made with Mario Artist games, and well as content made by Nintendo. Printed copies of creations could be ordered through the service.
A surprisingly well featured 3-D modelling program. Creations could be used in included minigames and animations.
An included minigame, later developed into WarioWare Youtube demonstration.
