YouTube channel Archades Games recently recorded and uploaded a VHS tape from the 1990 Nintendo World Championships. The actual video starts at 1:05 and is only about 5 minutes. It's a world Championship highlight reel sent to the Championship finalists so only a limited run of these existed. By the end of the Championships Thor Aackerlund was crowned the winner and has gone on to be a retro gaming legend and was featured in the Tetris documentary Ecstasy of Order.

"Got a special one for you all today! I am happy to bring you the footage from one of the few surviving NWC 1990 VHS tapes! This tape was only given to finalists who competed in Universal Studios Hollywood. This tape was loaned to me by Gabriel of the Utah Retro Gamers group for the purpose of preservation and sharing of history! Thank you again Gabriel!"
