Video: Nintendo History Motion Design

It's only a couple minutes long, and they skip over a couple things, but this video of the history of Nintendo consoles and handhelds is still pretty awesome. From Anthony Veloso (graphic design and animation) and Quentin Dron (vector illustration) it covers everything from the original Game & Watch all the way to the Wii U.

As cool as the design and animation is, I found myself surprised by the order of some of them. I honestly had forgotten that the original Game Boy was released before the SNES. I'd also forgotten that it took four AA batteries... good lord, did we keep Duracell in business as kids or what? The completist in me missees the Game Boy Advance SP, but I can understand why they skipped it (even if they did include the Game Boy Color). What I don't understand is the absence of the Virtual Boy. I'd love to see what they would have done graphically for that system... but I guess that truly is the black sheep of the Nintendo line...

Oh, and I loved the ending with all the Nintendo logos done in rather familiar styles!

The list also neglects to mention the Game Boy Pocket, which came out the same year as the N64. Perhaps they didn't want to remind people that they were still dabbling in portable black and white while simultaneously releasing their first 3D console, or maybe they just realized that they had a lot of redundancy in each generation of their portable systems. Then again it's probably due to that fact that their portable systems do better than those of Sega or Sony.
