Now, it will be widely available to Nintendo fans as well as those with a passion for quality documentary and an interest in collectables and discoveries.

Robert McCallum says: "Making "Nintendo Quest" was the most challenging and thrilling thing I've ever done in my life, and now to take the film on the road to the communities that welcomed us when we made the movie, and to new communities is a continuation of that eye-opening experience that shows you anything is possible if you have the guts to go on an adventure - Video game fan or not, you'll never find a more fun documentary that keeps you guessing, cheering, and excited until the very end."
