Back in 1994 a promotional video for the Super NES game Donkey Kong Country was put out by Nintendo Power magazine. Before the game was released on November 25th 1994, they visited the Nintendo of America headquarters to find out all about Rare’s platformer with rendered graphics. At the time this was a big deal and makes the following video both interesting and hilarious to watch. Waaaay too many banana jokes, though.
For maximum excitement, try putting yourself in the place of your 13-years-younger self… “The 3D graphics look real! Wow!”
