I've played it, one of the best moments of my life (although the games were the regular SF II and Mario Kart).

Always loved looking at those patent entries, a lot of great (or interesting) ideas that may or may not have come to fruition. Hell, there's even some downright crazy stuff.

Saved a few of those on my other rig for archiving, might share some of the most peculiars later (but as you mentioned, they are fairly available online).

For the moment, I only have the DSi patent drawing downloaded on this computer, still pretty nice :
