Gameplay was captured using the Elgato Game Capture HD from a Super Game Boy 2/Super Famicom combo upscaled via a Framemeister, and video/audio was edited using Sony Movie Studio Platinum Suite, Version 12.

Video Sources for commercials/animated shorts:

Everything else was recorded by me!

All music used in this video was taken from the featured game in addition to the track used in the very beginning (Ganbare Goemon: Mononoke Douchuu Tobidase Nabe Bugyou, Game Boy) and one at the “secret” clip at the very end (Ogre Battle 64, Nintendo 64).
