"I asked the Nintendo question and do you know what, the whole deal was a gentlemens agreement! The President from Nintendo of America and Philips Media simply shared a vision for the medium, so that is why Philips were allowed to use Nintendo characters. At least that is what the man says! I believe originally the vision was for use in educational wares however that was perverted towards video games later. That's my supposition anyway and 'Nintendo takes America' did sound like a kids title from the outset. Investigated CIGAM a little bit but unfortunately the studios creator Howard Greenspan died last year."
