On June 8, 1978, Nintendo released the Color TV-Game Racing 112 (カラーテレビゲームレーシング112 Karā Terebi-Gēmu Rēshingu Hyaku Jū Ni), a bird's-eye-view racing game that implements a steering wheel and gearshift. Alternatively, two smaller controllers can be used for multiplayer. The gameplay features a car from a bird-eye view driving on a track and avoiding other cars on the road. It is possible to play in two player mode as well with controls that attach on the back of the console. This is Shigeru Miyamoto’s first project working for Nintendo, as he was only a junior employee at the time. 160,000 units were sold.
