Nintendo 2000

Notes

The press kit came in a cardboard case with a lid panel secured by two small pieces of velcro. It contains three folders; Nintendo 64, Game Boy Color, and Corporate, each with multiple press releases inside. Some press releases are single page, but most consist of multiple pages stapled together. A clear plastic sleeve holding the Nintendo Image CD is glued to the front of the Corporate folder. In addition, it came with gold and silver editions of Nintendo Power Guide To E3 2000 and a Nintendo Software Index booklet.
