After more than three decades, a 20-minute video has been recovered that offers a look inside Nintendo of America. It contains raw footage shot at the Nintendo of America headquarters in Redmond, Washington.

The video contains unedited footage of manufacturing and assembly of the NES, the Nintendo Power Line, and more.

Kirby Super Star Gourmet Race figure

Earlier this month, we were given a proper look at MegaHouse’s upcoming Kirby Super Star Gourmet Race figure. Pre-orders have now opened for the west.

Amazon is taking pre-orders for the new figure here. It comes with a tentative September 1 release date.

We have more photos of the figure here for those that missed our previous coverage.

Takaya Imamura spent 32 years at Nintendo. Imamura ended up working on some of the company’s biggest games and franchises, including Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Smash Bros., Star Fox, and F-Zero. One of his noteworthy contributions was designing Tingle, who would go on to star in a couple of his own games after being an NPC in Majora’s Mask.

Imamura shared a selfie taken outside Nintendo’s Kyoto headquarters and wrote on his Facebook page:

During his days at Rare, Kev Bayliss worked on a number of different projects, including Donkey Kong Country. Bayliss helped determine the direction of the game’s character art.

In a YouTube video today, Bayliss offered up a look at some of his original sketches for Donkey Kong Country. Aside from Donkey Kong himself, we also get a look at Rambi, the Kremlings, and more.

Here’s the video intro from Bayliss:

One of our earliest looks at The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time came in 1997. It was fully playable at the trade show, which was a full year before launch. We’ve learned over the years that the build on display there offered up some significant changes from the final version.

Now more than twenty years later, assets from that early version of Zelda: Ocarina of Time have popped up online. Forest of Illusion obtained a prototype N64 cartridge for F-Zero X from a former Nintendo employee, which amazingly enough, has the unfinished build.

Here’s a roundup of notable findings:

Bayonetta 3

When PlatinumGames is asked about Bayonetta 3, you tend to get the same response. Aside from the studio constantly reassuring fans that development is going well, we haven’t really heard much about the game. That’s been the case since the project was originally announced at The Game Awards in December 2017.

There’s still no word on when Bayonetta 3 will release, but perhaps we’ll finally hear more this year. That’s based on a brief comment from PlatinumGames’ Hideki Kamiya.

During one of the recent Arcade Archives streams, Kamiya – who is known for his appreciation of classic games – had a phone conversation with Hamster boss Satoshi Hamada. Kamiya ended up suggesting that there could be a status update on Bayonetta 3 and other upcoming titles from the studio in 2021.
