Nintendo Entertainment System Video Game Console
- The Nintendo Entertainment System was one of the highest selling video game consoles yet offered. It was released in the United States in 1985. Super Mario Bros. was often packaged with the system making it most popular games of all time. Mario became a global icon recognized by children and parents alike.
- This system includes a control deck, an AC adapter, an AV cable (to attach to a television), and an RF switch and cable (to attach to a television). There are two standard controllers, as well as an orange and gray plastic pistol with cable that serves as a "Zapper" controller. The components are described in an instruction booklet entitled "Control Deck." The objects are stored in a blue cloth case with red handles and yellow trim. Also in the case is a "Wizards & Warriors" game cartridge. The copyright date on the game is 1985, the copyright date on the accompanying instructions is 1990, hence the date assigned.
