Partial transcript

On November 21st, 1990, Nintendo of Japan entered a new era. This day saw the debut of the new 16-Bit Super Famicom. A machine that was a quantum leap forward. Never had a home video game machine had the features that were on the Super Famicom. Scaling sprites, rotating backgrounds, orchestrated sound, a massive palette of colors and a new controller with 6 action buttons. On that first day, only 2 games were available for the Super Famicom. F-Zero and Super Mario Bros 4. Super Mario World!

For the first time, Nintendo could truly deliver the adventure for Mario they had always envisioned. And for the player at home, deliver massive, immersive, unforgettable experience.

The first announcements of a 16-bit machine came in September 1987 when Nintendo president, Hiroshi Yamauchi personally announced that a “Super” Family Computer was in development. At the same time, Nintendo began filing patents and trademarks for this new, Super, machine…..

A list of sources used to create this video:
Music by Qumu
SNES Music Classics
Some music taken from orchestrated soundtrack of Super Mario World as well as in game music. Other songs from Super Mario Bros. Pinball and Akihabara Electric Circus.
Some scans by Chris Covell He did a lot of research which prompted me to search out even more, that resulted in even more scans found from new sources.

Kalhi Balto contributed to the updated higher resolution scans of some images.
