The Nintendo Entertainment System model no. M82 (NES M82), also known as simply the M82 was an in-store demo unit of the Nintendo Entertainment System capable of holding 12 cartridges at once. The unit allowed players to test new NES games, with a limit on gameplay time, before making a purchase.
The unit came with a theme song by Hirokazu Tanaka, known as the "Glorious March" theme in the Lost Tapes album.

A play time limit of 30 seconds, 3, 6 or 128 minutes would be set by a button on the rear of the unit, after which the system would reset. The unit requires a coax key to access the cartridge slots.
