Nintendo is usually very protective of their property, rarely letting other companies make games based on their licences. However, there are a few examples of other manufacturers being allowed to develop their own derivative Nintendo consoles. The Panasonic Q is one example of this.

The system only ever released in Japan, selling too poorly to warrant an international release. It’s certainly an odd piece of Nintendo history, no doubt why The Gaming Historian decided to cover it in his latest video. Check it out below.
