The latest in a series of Japanese promo videos for Nintendo’s mobile social networking app demonstrates Miitomo’s ability to bring plucky teens together in song, which unfortunately isn’t a real thing.
These days, if you want to record direct video footage of a video game, all you need to do is press a button. But back in the 1980s, this was a complex and expensive process!

In 1991, Nintendo published an adventure game (developed by Pax Softnica) in Japan for the Famicom Disk System called Time Twist. It is not the kind of game Nintendo would publish in 2016.

I wasn’t initially impressed with PuppetMaster9's compilation of popular tunes played using the in-game Ocarina from The Legend of Zelda: Major’s Mask for the 3DS. Then he got to “Baker Street.” Such a sucker for that song.
If you’ve still got your childhood Super Nintendo hooked up and on active duty you’ve probably discovered that while the console is going strong, its original controllers have long since died.
