Video game documentaries are all the rage. You have ones dedicated to where games are played and who plays them like 100 Yen, to ones that details who makes games in the first place, like Indie Game: The Movie.
There’s also documentaries that simply cover a single game, from the indie sandbox sensation Minecraft: The Story of Mojang, to Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters, which highlights what many believe to be the greatest video game of all time.
But what about the greatest game peripheral of all time? I’m talking about the Power Glove of course. Well, its time has finally come, courtesy of the forthcoming The Power of the Glove.
It promises to answer every question you’ve ever had about the future of gaming, as originally foretold in a 100 minute long commercial for Super Mario Bros 3 starring the Wonder Years’ Fred Savage, but didn’t realize you had.
The documentary will include a numbers of interviews, including those who actually engineered the thing, one of the most technological computer inputs of its kind. One that, alas, was hit with a number of compromises before finally reaching stores shelves.
It also features Isaiah “Triforce” Johnson, a prominent Nintendo evangelist that you’re no doubt familiar. He’s that guy who’s always the very first guy in line for any new Nintendo system. The one who’s always wearing… you got it… a Power Glove.
