Nintendo's Terrifying Power Glove Indoctrination Video

Total RecallTotal RecallTotal Recall is a look back at the history of video games through their characters, franchises, developers and trends.

Get a cup of tea, a biscuit or two and settle in for ten minutes worth of Nintendo Power Glove propaganda, courtesy of the official VHS cassette guide to the peripheral.


It is something you really should watch. From the product placement to pseudo-religious tone throughout, it's as perfect a summary of one of Nintendo's most glorious failures as you're likely to see.

UPDATE - Seeing as they made the thing, this was actually all Mattel's fault.
