"Super Mario 64" is the fifth canonical game in the "Super Mario" series and was released for the Nintendo 64 console by Nintendo in 1996. The game retains the platforming elements typical of the series, but introduces several new power ups, including the Wing Cap, which grants Mario the ability to fly. The Wing Cap is not immediately available and must be unlocked for use.
