Elsewhere: Kid Icarus Japanese TV Ad

Kid Icarus and Metroid both hit the American NES at around the same time, but as far as I can determine Nintendo put its money on Metroid, and didn't support Kid Icarus with TV commercials.

Fortunately, this Japanese television ad survives, and as a bonus, provides a rare video example of the "this game will damage you if you play it" videogame advertising trope:

Whoa, man.  That Medusa... she'll get you, like... stoned.
