Nuts for Nintendo Segment from 20/20 (1988)

This video was transferred and uploaded from the VHS tape of Steven Hertz. It is a segment from the news magazine 20/20 that focuses on the big Christmas hype for Super Mario Bros 2 and the Legend of Zelda 2 and how scarce these two games are due to the “chip shortage” of the time. Some things never change.
