As theand loom, it’s an ideal moment for Console Wars to bring us back to the ’90s, when Nintendo and Sega battled for dominance. The documentary, which got a trailer Friday, comes out Wednesday, Sept. 23, and will be exclusive to CBS All-Access in the US.
It’s directed by Jonah Tulis and Blake J. Harris (who wrote theof the same name), and includes interviews with Nintendo legend Howard Phillps, former Sega of America CEO Tom Kalinske and many others who lived through the era of SNES and Genesis.
“It was a once-in-a-lifetime, no-holds-barred conflict that pit brother against brother, kids against grownups, Sonic against Mario, and uniquely American capitalism against centuries-old Japanese tradition,” says a press release for the film.
