Jackie Chan Once Endorsed An Unofficial NES Console Clone In China

The latest Did You Know Gaming video covers the Nintendo's first home console, the NES.

In the video you will learn all about the console and its upbringing, and how Jackie Chan was able to help sneak the console into China after recreational video games were banned. The system was sold as an educational device, and its commercials featured Jackie Chan helping children use it, and doing assorted kung-fu poses. The video also covers the system's unreleased in North America 3D and knitting peripherals, and how it went online in what ended up being a failed experiment.
