We hate 2020!

Just when we thought 2020 couldn't get any worse! We were about to re-open after many months of being closed but then disaster struck when a mains water pipe burst and flooded much of the ground floor of the museum.
Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

Color TV Game 15

Nintendo released the Color TV Game 15 on June 8th 1977, just a week after the TV Game 6. The two controllers were now attached with cables, making for much more comfortable gameplay. The 15 games were all variants of Light Tennis. The Color TV Game 15 ended up selling more than one million units.

Two versions of the Color TV Game 15 were released: the CTG-15S and the CTG-15V. Other than using a different shade of orange, the main difference is the paddle controls: the -15S uses endless rotary controls which move the on-screen bat at a fixed speed. The -15V controls have definite start and end points and can be rotated at any speed.

Our Color TV Game 15 is the -15V version and is in it's original box.

Manufacturer: Nintendo
Date: 8th June 1977
