    The Famicom Disk System didn't even run on AC power, it instead ran on 4 "C" batteries.

    Does anyone know why Riddle of Murasame was never released in the U.S.?
    alteredcuber1317 Posted 1 year 3 months ago
    1) It's actually "Mysterious Murasame Castle"
    2) The game was too Japanese for American/European audiences. Nintendo did eventually release the game on the 3DS in 2014.

    What audience was this supposed to be aimed at? o_O Adults dont care about games and no kid would ever sit through this entire thing.

    And were those cutscenes in Legend of Zelda ingame? Cuz that's pretty cool if they were

    Famicon circa.1983

    That would be rad if there was a full length anime for Zelda. Ive seen those originals clips before in the Nintendo Power ages ago. If anyone knows more, let me know..>?

    Man, these infomercials are loooooooooong! Still, I liked this one! From what I know, the Famicom Disk System is exactly the same as the regular Famicom/NES, only it runs floppys with the games on them. This was also the system to have the original Japanese title, "Doki Doki Panic", until the game's characters were edited and the name was changed to, "Super Mario Bros. 2" (as a sequel to the original "Super Mario Bros.") It was pretty cool to see some of the games in action on this, such as "The Legend of Zelda"! (a classic, indeed) But it was rather funny to see the player who was controlling Link keep getting hurt by the monsters! LOL! The second game they showed, I'm not so familair with, but it does obviously appear to be another Japanese title that never made it to America (I think)

    MY THOUGHTS: This commercial was cool, but the game system is sooooooo ugly!
