Sing Along to The History of Nintendo

Posted by James Newton

Start Friday right

The talented folks at long-running webcomic Brawl in the Family have used their 400th strip to celebrate Nintendo's life and times in a catchy tune.

From hanafuda cards to Wii U, it crams some good detail into its 3:42 running time and will no doubt get stuck in your head for a good few hours.

It also scores bonus points for name-checking Little King's Story.

Nice video. I'm fan of Brawl in the Family and have already wondered when the 400th comic is coming out.

@Lan: I agree but as Brawl in the Family's comics are mostly done by one person who draws something for every week and has a life so you can't expect a video of much larger scale.

The website tells that the comic had been in the works for over a year. He had to get the idea, plan what he wants to include, draw everything, edit the video and make the song (although he had some help with the video and song). And also make other comics and live his life at the same time.

Maybe he will continue this video, add some stuff and release it as his 500th comic

@Late Not to mention the creative challenge of writing a good song about the 110+ year history of Nintendo. But hey, if someone else would like to have a go, we'd gladly feature it if it's this good

...All you people complaining know that he was morbidly ill, right?
He still is. He's just starting to recover.

I like the Nintendo Power reference, Nester.
Pretty awesome song, glad to hear he was well enough to make an animation.

Pretty awesome stuff. It may not go "deep" but sure there are tons of neat and obscure references that prove the guy does his homework. Thanks for sharing, James

I like this video, and the Noki Bay book always did leave me baffled! Anyone know what that is for?
