Mint Gaming Treasures Are Hidden Inside This Nintendo Storage Room

untitled-2

As part of a series of posts celebrating the 30th anniversary of the release of the original Legend of Zelda on the Famicom in Japan, Nintendo have offered a glimpse at a storage facility where they keep never-sold, mint-in-box consoles from days gone by. They shared snaps of Famicom units (including an unboxing), the Famicom Disk System, and even a Famicom Disk Writer – a kiosk unit that was found in video game stores in Japan where punters could bring in their own floppy disks to have games written to them. They even fired up Zelda on an old CRT.

These photos are like peering back in time. Check out the full set below.
