Do you remember back in the days when gaming was a simpler time? You went to the shop, bought a cartridge, came home and played? Any gamer would be lying if they said a little bit of them didn’t yearn for those golden years.

Nostalgia is important. We here at Gamer Limit know this, and, well, we’re here to help. We’ve managed to get our hands on a exclusive cache of original, recorded, gaming advertisements from the US, Japan, Australia, and even a couple of obscure or banned ones too.

Every Thursday we’ll upload a new one for your viewing pleasure, thus giving you, if only for about 30 seconds, a little visual taste of the past.

This week, we’re being a tease. A little know launch title, Chu Chu Rocket, hit the Dreamcast back in the 90′s. Here’s the original, and completely obscure, Japanese commercial.

This one’s reasonably well known for its strangeness, but tune in next week for something a little more meaty.

  1. I absolutely love this ad, and it’s only appropriate that it be Chu-Chu during Dreamcast week.

  2. Wow …. I mean …. just wow! Those crazy Japanese and their crazy commercials!

  3. I’d have missed out on this game had I not mysteriously found an opened copy of it on a counter at Sears on the second floor which was oddly deserted of customers and employees, at least the video game section was. Definitely on of my favorite Dreamcast games- and I have twenty five favorite Dreamcast games
