An incredibly rare glimpse into the Nintendo that was.

Youtube user Archon 1981 has made an incredibly rare find. This bit of Nintendo history comes in the form of a VHS of former President of Nintendo America, Minoru Arakawa's retirement celebration. Totaling just under two hours, the video has never been seen before outside of Nintendo. Archon 1981 has made a few changes to some background music to avoid copyright claims but otherwise the video remains as originally produced. He has also provided the raw version of the video to Strong Museum of Play to ensure that it is properly archived.
