Color TV Game Block Kuzushi is the fourth console of the Color TV-Game series released by Nintendo on April 23, 1979 at ¥13,500. The system was produced in-house by Nintendo, allowing their name to be prominently displayed. Block Kuzushi includes six variations of Breakout, an arcade game released in America by Atari. The system's casing was designed by Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto and is considered on of his first projects after joining Nintendo in 1977. Nintendo also held competitions in department stores to promote the Block Kuzushi, where winners received a congratulatory note and a medal.
