Editor's Note: Huh. If this thing would have actually been released, my mother probably would have bought one.
A 1980's brochure was recently posted on Nintendo spokesman Howard Phillips' Facebook Fanpage wall. The broshure included a picture of a rumored knitting accessory for the NES.
The ad states:
Phillips says that former Nintendo president, Minoru Arakawa, asked him to pitch the machine to Toys R' Us chairman with only a 30 minute notice!
Below is a picture of the Knitting machine from the 80's broshure.
According to Philips, a piece of knitting software was released for the famicom and it was a hit in Japan. Philips explains:
Below is a video showing off some technology that could have been used by this accessory if it was released.
So let me know what you think g1s! Would you have bought this if it was released or is it just another edition to the NES accessory pile? Tell me in the comments below!
