The Nintendo Power Line returns throughout NES Classic Edition launch weekend

To have a good time the discharge of the NES Classic Edition, Nintendo is bringing the Power Line again.


It might be stay for 3 days solely, November 11-13 and open from 6am – 7pm PT every day.

The unique Power Line was a service Nintendo launched within the late ’80s which gamers might name and communicate with Game Play Counselors. They would supply useful ideas and tips, and there have been additionally automated walkthroughs made obtainable.

In this absolutely automated model, to attach all you must do is dial (425) 885-7529 to listen to recorded ideas for a number of video games, plus behind-the-scenes tales from unique Nintendo Game Play Counselors. The solely factor it’s going to price you is lengthy distance – if you happen to plan to go all nostalgic and dig a corded cellphone out of the attic and plug it into the wall.

I’ve to say, there have been a couple of occasions I referred to as the Power Line myself, and let’s simply say my dad and mom didn’t respect it each a lot. It was an extended distance name, but it surely was modified to a 900-line which might cost callers $1.50 per minute. I all the time appeared to have reached the identical sport counselor every time I referred to as, and I imagine his title was Shawn or Steve – I do know it started with an “S” – and this was seemingly as a result of time zone.

Anyway, Nintendo closed the service in 2010.
