    I have a question and I'm not sure if anyone will be able to answer it. I've searched the web for a while unable to find any information on this particular cartridge. I have the Japanese version of annual crossing for my n64. It always somehow kept track of the time throughout all these years but today I plugged it in and found that the time and date was way off. I saved and later turned it back on. It had again, not kept track of time. So I am wondering. Does the n64 have a battery in it at all? Or does the cartridge. And if the cart does, how could it be dead if my game save is still there? Anyone know what I can do to get it to keep tie again? Thanks.

    Yeah, there is a battery inside the cartridge you must replace. The save is kept on an EEPROM, which does not require power to hold the save, but the RTC is battery powered.

    Here is a basic video I found on how to replace your battery. Enjoy!
