Crackle’s new five-part documentary series Playing with Power: The Nintendo Story is only days away from release. Exploring Nintendo’s early origins to the modern-day, Crackle released a first look trailer last Friday and now, Nintendo Life has been given access to an exclusive clip before next week’s launch.
Calling this clip “Staying Power”, you can spot several well-known industry figures commenting on Nintendo’s history, including former Nintendo of America spokesperson Howard Phillips, game designer Cliff Bleszinski, Atari founder Nolan Bushnell and Head of Xbox Phil Spencer.
Leading up to next week, Crackle has released this synopsis:
Playing With Power: The Nintendo Story peels back the curtain on the famously-secretive Japanese company that would eventually take the global videogame industry by storm. Discover the humble beginnings of a gaming business that began many decades before the invention of television, and ride along the bumpy road of hits, misses, and wild ideas that turned Nintendo from a local playing card maker into a worldwide household name.
Narrated by Sean Astin, the electrifying story is presented by an ensemble of Nintendo personnel, celebrity icons, and industry veterans including Wil Wheaton, Alison Haislip, former Nintendo CEO Reggie Fils-Aimé, and head of Xbox Phil Spencer.
Due to go live on March 1st, we’ll be bringing you our impressions of this series soon.
