Official Legit Scans of Nintendo Manuals

by samsonlonghair Wed Nov 23, 2016 9:15 am

NINTENDO MANUALS

Straight from the mothership, Big N has high-resolution manuals for your perusal. It's not ip infringement if Nintendo is hosting this themselves, right? :wink:

UPDATE: I started this thread just to share a collection of Gameboy Manuals. My fellow Racketeers pointed out to me that Nintendo is hosting more manuals than just the Gameboy ones I initially shared here. So, I'm re-organizing this first post to incorporate some of the data that has since emerged. Many thanks to everyone who contributed so far. :mrgreen:

I'm not sure why they have all those up... Are they VC releases?

Also worth noting, Nintendo has manuals for all the games included with the NES Classic. Popo posted a link to it in the NES Classic thread...

Because Nintendo used to post (or get 3rd party permission to post) scans of manuals for games that people lost just as a reference. Before they hosted stuff online they'd sell all the extra/shipped back copies of old game manuals as far back as the NES for around $1-2 a piece, even bonus packages like the card/poster fluff that Dragon Warrior 1 had. Once they started to run out some games were then black and white photocopies and as the rest more or less got bought up they just stopped entirely and later offered up the PDFs.

It might be for the re-release Classic Mini Gameboy advance. They've released some n64 manuals for maybe mini n64 console for the future.

Thanks for the heads up. I will add those to this thread.

Edit: Come to think of it, maybe I should spend some time later on revising the first post on this thread for the sake of better organization. Maybe I will rename this thread, "Official Legit Scans of Nintendo Manuals" or something like that.

Agree, maybe include all the other systems; a link from each Nintendo PDF Index Page?

Curious how you found each GBA PDF, is there a front page such as the N64 link?

Perhaps include {url}{/url} to each link in the OP? This way a hot link and still showing the entire address.
I did this in your quote above and the sample below along with {size=150}{/size}. Thanks for making this Thread, :D

I'm hoping there are other GBA PDFs if there is a front index page. Based on the NES Classic list either Virtua Console games or maybe a future N64 Classic and GBA Classic as you surmised. The N64 Classic would be a smart move, the console fondly remembered.

I have updated this first post on this thread. Now we have a click-able link to each and every single manual we have found on Nintendo's websites so far. I have also changed the title of this thread as we have expanded beyond Gameboy manuals.

Changing the title may have broken some old links to this thread in the "Active Topics," "New Posts," and "Your Posts" egosearch. In time, that little problem should solve itself naturally.

Now that I took the time to update the first post, I do expect that someone will find more .pdf manuals on Nintendo's various websites in short order. C'est la Vie!
