SEGA has been releasing several 3DS themes in Japan based on classic consoles. Two more came out this week: one based on the SG-1000, and another for the Dreamcast.

How’d SEGA go about making these themes anyway? Photos from the company’s Yosuke Okunari provide some interesting insight. Through pictures shared on Okunari’s Twitter account, it’s revealed that SEGA actually used the old consoles in recording sounds for the themes.

Specifically regarding the SG-1000 3DS theme, Okunari commented:

We wanted to recreate the short “Buu” sound when turning on the console for the SG-1000 theme and so we brought the console to the studio for recording. However, that sound varies depending on the software so we started up roughly 20 games and chose the one which sounded the most authentic.
