My friend Stefan has interviewed a bunch of people from Sunsoft, and has been working hard to learn more about their history and the games they made. He has a nine-part series of articles in the works, and I believe the full interviews he's sourcing his information from will be available when it's all wrapped up.

 

Part 1: http://www.vgarc.org...before-sunsoft/

 

Includes: 

  • Before SunSoft
  • 1978-1985: The early arcade era

 

Part 2: http://www.vgarc.org...sunsoft-part-2/

 

Includes:

  • Transition to the Famicom
  • 1986-87

We were talking about how cool that flyer is! It rules.

 

The cartoon it got could mostly be lost to time. The intro and one segment have been salved, which are rips of VCR TV recordings.

Part 2 is up!

 

http://www.vgarc.org...sunsoft-part-2/

 

This one covers the early years on the Famicom and NES. This is where some of the meat of Stefan's findings start showing up, where he's learned lots of new information about the company and the people involved.

 

Also, how badly do I want to see a bootleg re-release of Atlantis no Nazo for the NES, with this ringing endorsement put on the box - "“I think it at least surpasses [Super Mario Bros.] in number of levels, if nothing else.” – Shigeki Shimizu".
