Discussing Hudson’s Mario Games with Native Japanese Speaker Bando

In mid-January 2018, around a month after helping to win the auction for Donkey Kong 3: Dai Gyakushuu, I was contacted by Bando, a native Japanese speaker who had been in contact with Fumihiko Itagaki, the developer of DK3: DG, and Mr. Imatani (first name unknown), who worked on the ads for Hudson’s Mario games. These are some messages he’s sent me, with previously undocumented information.
