I'll note here the footage is raw so unless you speak Japanese or somebody translates this, no idea what is actually being said. Still, I feel wistful watching this, such a vibrate period of video gaming from Japan, I do miss it.

KazuyaGames has uploaded loads of CMs and docs like these, all waiting for subs. I really want someone to translate the Sharp products infomercial that starts out with the animated New-Life People ad...it's so '80s.

This is really fascinating! It had occurred to me that I've never actually heard Hiroshi Yamauchi talk before. It was interesting.

I really hope somebody translates the whole thing, really interested in finding out more about that time period in Japanese games.

The NEC Interchannel visit is very neat. I'm guessing the man demoing Pixy Garden's the director behind Mercurius Pretty as well.

Yuji Horii looks exactly the same twenty years onward. He's only 60 now? I would've guessed he was 10 years older.

Will definitely watch in full later, thanks for finding it OP
