Blake J. Harris’ excellent book Console Wars did a wonderful job of recounting the titanic struggle between Nintendo and Sega for control of the living in room in the early ’90s. Mario and Sonic went head-to-head in a battle worth millions of dollars, and the book – filled with exclusive interviews and information – was an incredible read.
It was quickly snapped up for adaptation as a movie by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, but this has since transitioned to a documentary TV series (with Rogen and Goldberg still involved), and above you’ll see the first trailer.
Like the book, it will feature input from the likes of Tom Kalinske and Howard Lincoln (amongst many others) who explain exactly what happened during that tumultuous period in video game history.
Console Wars arrives on CBS All Access on September 23rd, 2020.
