As part of Nintendo's celebration of the original release of The Legend of Zelda 30 years ago in 1986, the company is posting a series of features on its Japanese site, the latest of which gives a tantalising glimpse into one of the most interesting rooms in its Kyoto HQ.
Packed with mint and boxed Famicom consoles, Disk System units and the all-important old-school CRT television, this room is sure to be of interest to really obsessive Nintendo followers. Heck, there's even a Famicom Disk System Writer kiosk in one corner - these allowed people to write new games to their existing disks for a reduced fee.
While Zelda was released in North America on a physical cartridge, in Japan it made its debut on the Famicom Disk System. This was part of Nintendo's drive to encourage people to buy the add-on unit by tempting them with exclusive games.
Just imagine being let loose in that room. Just imagine.
Thanks to Benson for the tip!
