Legendary Wings [NES] - A Graphical Guided Tour & 1CC Run

SHMUP Master Presents: Legendary Wings [NES]

Legendary Wings is a SHMUP ported from the arcade to the NES in 1988 by Capcom. There isn't anything particularly great about it, but it's a fun, albeit easy romp. It's worth playing if you love 8-bit SHMUPS and don't want to deal with a super difficult game. 

This was the quickest I have ever been able to capture a 1cc run, which took me roughly 2 nights. I planned on just releasing the run with an overlay but then started adding things... and a month later, ended up with a fully produced video to go along with my 1cc run of the game.

I'm fairly confident that no one has done a video quite like this before. I took the idea I started with my HyperZone video and expanded on it quite a bit. The end result is a "graphical guided tour" of sorts for Legendary Wings. I animated most of the enemies and bosses in the game and used them throughout my run to create a "video" outside the video, if that makes sense. My intention was to add to the experience of a game that is perhaps, a bit bland to watch at times. Hopefully spicing it up this way makes the game a bit more interesting than it actually is.

Feedback and suggestions for future videos are always welcomed!

*All footage was captured on an original NES Model 2 console (modded for RGB Output) through a Framemeister using RGB at 60fps.
