The early late ’80s and early ’90s are a goldmine for video game collectors. Not only did many of the biggest games of the day release in flimsy packages but some of the most sought after got relatively small print-runs, making even loose copies sometimes go for hundreds of dollars. The holy grails above even those are the competition carts, unique versions of games sent out to event holders.

Of course those event holders would need to know what to do, though, and that’s where promotional tapes came in. The folks over at Hard4Games have compiled both a radio spot and a promotional videotape from the Super Star Fox Weekend Competition into one showcase, letting us step back in time to experience what it would be like to work behind the scenes at this pivotal moment in Nintendo history.

If that blast to the past was a rush for you be sure to check out Hard4Games and the source of the tapes, GetTheGregGames.
