Watch Now: Trailer for new documentary ‘Nintendo Quest’

by Phil Wheat


Nintendo Quest follows two gaming enthusiasts, director Robert McCallum and life-long friend Jay Bartlett, as they hit the open road in hope of buying all 678 official retail licensed Nintendo games in just 30 days, with no online purchases.

One man. 30 days, 678 games. No online purchases. It’s the premise that launched a film over 10,000 miles in the making and showcases the adventure of video game rock star, Jay Bartlett, a fanatic collector in pursuit of his dream to own a complete official North American NES library. Along the way, filmmaker Rob McCallum examines the enduring legacy of the NES and Nintendo while talking to the enthusiastic community of retro gamers and game collectors.

Nintendo Quest features exclusive interviews with well-known names in the game industry including ‘greatest arcade player of all time’ Billy Mitchell, ‘Twin Galaxies’ founder Walter Day, and gaming personality Patrick Scott Patterson, as well as legendary game designers Warren Davis and Tommy Tallarico. It’s the first time a roster of this magnitude and talent discuss Nintendo and the landmark home console, the NES.

Director Robert McCallum says:

Making “Nintendo Quest” was the most challenging and thrilling thing I’ve ever done in my life, and now to take the film on the road to the communities that welcomed us when we made the movie, and to new communities is a continuation of that eye-opening experience that shows you anything is possible if you have the guts to go on an adventure – Video game fan or not, you’ll never find a more fun documentary that keeps you guessing, cheering, and excited until the very end.

Vision Films are set to release adventure-filled documentary Nintendo Quest with an exclusive worldwide premiere on Vimeo On Demand this week (October 1st/2nd). It will then be released on all other major digital platforms and DVD in North America on December 1st 2015.
