Nintendo of America - 1990 video

Take a trip back to 1990 with this rare look behind the scenes at Nintendo of America.

YouTube channel btm0815ma has published some long-unseen footage that takes viewers on a tour of Nintendo of America’s Redmond HQ. The 20-minute long video covers everything from NOA’s research and development operation to the actual manufacture of NES consoles.

The b-roll footage offers a fascinating glimpse into Nintendo’s business at the peak of the 8-bit era. (It’s also of interest to me on a personal note, as my uncle worked at Nintendo in the early 1990s. Honest.)

Grab a coffee and enjoy.

btm0815ma’s YouTube channel includes lots more of interest to gaming enthusiasts. Highlights include a visit to the 1991 Consumer Electronics Show, a trip to Toys “R” Us, and a report from a 1998 video game arcade.

You’ll also find much to enjoy if you’re really into TV news coverage of the first Gulf War.
