The things you find accidentally...

Here's some generic Sega/Nintendo coverage from popular Spanish interesting things magazine, "Muy Interesante". From April 1993. Not sure if anything being said is of any meaningful use (translate pls) but the photographs are noteworthy... because it shows the inside one of Sega's offices at the time.

There are Digitzers and models being made of clay.

And maybe live experiments on Charles Martinet.


You don't see this very often.

The cover art for Sonic is literally ripped from the second issue of Archie...

I'm sure the Mario art is from the Nintendo Power Mario comic.

That Sega World still exists:

It was made more vampire-friendly in the early 2000s.

Actually is a Chilean magazine (no offense)... and there's some facts in it:

-That consoles before the 90s in Chile were practically non existent

-The first consoles reaching Chile were brougth by Chilean immigrants which arrived to its country with consoles acquired abroad, in Europe or USA as gifts for its children, which at some extent, attracted some companies interested in this new business (what became known as the "Tourism Effect'')... Companies like ''Remus'' (''Repuestos Musalem'', owned by a Chilean family known as Musalem Yunis) and ''H. Briones y Cia'' (owned by Hernán Briones, which was President of the ''SOFOFA- Sociedad de Fomento Fabril'' / SOFOFA- Industrial Development Society) began to distribute Nintendo consoles and videogames...

The article also tell us about the Sega representative ( and also Akai representative) in Chile, a guy called Ludwig Carl Kommer Bruger ( the guy behind Redi Ltda., which acording to its Linkedin profile was a CEO there for 15 years, from 1990 to 2005... he is currently a Senior Advisery Consultant at ''Beckett Bancorp Inc.'' in Toronto, Canada, providing consulting services through its firm ''Coandes S.p.A'' ) and about a 2000m2 Sega arcade venue called ''Miniland" that would be opened, in middle April 1993, in the ''Plaza Vespucio de la Florida Shopping Center'' , in Santiago, Capital of Chile...

that's what we can consider relevant in that article...
