-Movie-Wizard, The (1989) 44
Super Mario Bros. 3 is considered one of the greatest games of all time, and was also one of the most highly anticipated. It got to the point where an entire movie, The Wizard, was seemingly made to hype the game. But how were previews handled in Japan? You probably didn't ask but are going to get the answer anyway!

Some early footage of SMB3 was included in a VHS-only videogame magazine called Famimaga, similar to the VHS tape that was sent out to promote the first Donkey Kong Country. It was only recently unearthed and put on YouTube. Make sure to keep the annotations on when you're watching, because the uploader, KeijiDragon, has included some extra notes pointing out all the little differences between the footage shown and the final product. Have a look below!
