On January 28, 1995, Nintendo R&D1 and Gunpei Yokoi are ready to design the Nintendo Neo in the wake of the success of the PlayStation. Yokoi claimed Neo was a CD-based add-on for the Nintendo 64. Nintendo claimed its first title was Kirby's Air Ride, a title that was later remade for the GameCube. In late 1995, the codename "Neo" was changed to "Nintendo 64 CD".
