The Nintendo Satellaview Rare Promo VHS Has Been Restored

Nintendo Satellaview

Nintendo faced a challenge in 1995 when promoting the innovative Satellaview add-on for its Super Famicom console. This new device utilized satellite technology to allow players to download games, read digital magazines, and access other media through a connection with St.GIGA, a Japanese satellite radio company.


However, with physical media still predominant and fast broadband connections uncommon at the time, explaining the benefits of a satellite modem to average gamers in the early ’90s was complex. To tackle this challenge, Nintendo created a special VHS promotional video that showcased available games and explained how the system functioned.


Thanks to the preservation efforts of Hard4Games, this tape has been restored and is now accessible on YouTube for future audiences to enjoy and appreciate.
