Saw this over on Kotaku today and thought and it’s so awesome I couldn’t resist re-posting. It was created by graphic designer Anthony Veloso, someone who clearly has a deep appreciation for all of the colorful, whimsical but still classic-looking Nintendo hardware designs we’ve seen over the past 30 or so years. Starting all the way back in 1980 with Nintendo’s Game & Watch, this animated video shows us the evolution of Nintendo’s console and handheld designs up through 2012 with this month’s release of the Wii U.


The way it’s animated and cut together is really impressive, and just makes me want to go home to my own collection of Nintendo hardware (which you can check out pics of here) and just bask in all of that plastic, retro gaming goodness. It’s set to some pretty kick-ass music, too.
