Nintendo Quest: Power Tour was a web series that aired in 2015-2016 and was hosted by Jonathan Leung, Jeffrey Lowe, and Jay Bartlett. The show followed the trio as they embarked on a quest to find and collect all 678 North American Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games released during the console's lifespan.

The series was comprised of nine episodes, each about 10-15 minutes in length, and chronicled the team's journey across the continent. Their goal was to complete their collection in just 30 days, and they set off on a road trip in a vintage 1989 Nissan Maxima that they had retrofitted as a portable gaming rig.

Throughout their travels, the team encountered numerous obstacles as they raced against the clock to find all the elusive NES games. They visited multiple video game stores and even hosted events where they traded games with fellow collectors.

Despite their enthusiasm, the team soon realized that the task they had set out to complete was not an easy one. They were met with several challenges, including game retailers who refused to sell their inventory, rare games that were worth several hundred dollars, and run-ins with other collectors who were also after the same games.

The show also featured interviews with various experts in the world of video game collecting, including Frank Cifaldi from the Video Game History Foundation and Billy Mitchell, the world champion of Pac-Man.

Nintendo Quest: Power Tour was not just a show about collecting games, it was also about the bonds that form over a shared love of gaming. The show offered a glimpse into the world of video game collecting, and the passion and dedication required to complete a collection of this magnitude.

The team's journey was not without its surprises or highs and lows, and viewers followed their progress with bated breath. The show was equal parts entertaining and informative, and it provided some valuable insights into what it takes to be a successful video game collector.

As the team travelled across the country, they also explored different cities and towns, and the show offered a unique perspective on the North American landscape. With a mix of fun challenges, interesting characters, and plenty of nostalgia, Nintendo Quest: Power Tour was a must-watch for anyone who grew up with the NES or has an interest in the world of video game collecting.

Overall, Nintendo Quest: Power Tour was an enjoyable web series that offered a fun and unique look into the world of video game collecting. The series was a winning combination of gaming nostalgia, road trip adventure, and camaraderie, making it a must-watch for fans of this niche hobby.

Nintendo Quest: Power Tour is a series that is currently running and has 1 seasons (9 episodes). The series first aired on April 1, 2018.
