One of the more interesting franchises to come out of Nintendo in the past decade was the Custom Robo series. The series is similar to the Cyber Trooper series, except the robots are the size of action figures and you can customize them however you want. The GameCube installment, called Custom Robo Battle Revolution in Japan, was the first game to be released internationally. It had a more mature story than previous installments, which helped fight off the “kiddie” stigma that Nintendo had since the SNES days.
And, wouldn’t you know it, Nintendo never bothered to properly advertize the damn thing! The Operation Rainfall Retro Commercial Research Team (in other words, me) found only one English commercial for Custom Robo, but I never saw it on TV. Hell, if I hadn’t seen a cutscene from the game on G4’s Cinematech, I wouldn’t have even heard of it. Regardless, here is that very commercial for your viewing pleasure in this week’s Retro Wrap-Up.
