While it contained hardly any surprises or revelations about how consoles were made at the time, it was a fascinating look at the good people who worked tirelessly to ensure that your beloved NES reached your hands in perfect condition.

Now, it’s time to take a look at the SNES. In a new video posted by video game historian John Andersen, we get a lovely glimpse of a UK SNES assembly line, with new consoles packed with none other than Street Fighter II.
