This documentary about the history of the Famicom, released in 2003, features interviews with several key developers and industry figures from the era, including Hideo Kojima, Keiji Inafune, Koichi Nakamura, Toshihiro Nagoshi, Yoshiki Okamoto, Takahashi Meijin, and Tetsuya Mizuguchi. While being an unabashed love letter to Nintendo’s impact on video game culture, it also offers us in the West a unique window into how the Japanese creators saw the system, and the specific moment in Japanese history that the Famicom occupies.
