The Original Nintendo Came with Rob the Robot

1 min read

ROB proved to be an absolute failure. It was almost unworkable, and proved to be as much fun as a fire in an orphanage. But what it did do well was marketing. It kick started the sale of the new video game console in a US market that had little excitement for such an item. This ROB the robot with the original Nintendo helped catapult Nintendo into the dominant market leader it is today.

ROB was discontinued a short time later. While he was discontinued from production, Nintendo have given him a few cameo appearances in games such as F-Zero GX and Super Smash Bros Brawl. I don’t think that they will ever show some of their more shady endeavors in their games these days.
