How it all began
Masahiro Sakurai is back with another installment in his game development video series. Sakurai almost always offers some insight into how to build games, but every once in awhile he shares a video that is a bit more random. Today happens to be one of those days.
In today’s ‘Grab Bag’ video, Sakurai pivots from game development to game admiration with a look at the Game & Watch series. When making Smash Bros., Nintendo lent Sakurai a precious document detailing LCD patterns used in the old Game & Watch handhelds. With Nintendo’s permission, Sakurai shares this important and fascinating piece of video game history.
