Did you use a midi file to do this?  Or did you arrange it yourself?

I used Winamp with various .vgm and .nsf plugins, plus some comparable program for SNES songs.  I loaded up the emulated game music for each system and muted all channels except for one, and captured each individual channel from each game in this way.  Then I was able to tempo match and key match each individual track and mix them together.  

In a nutshell, all of the sounds you are hearing are the actual emulated sounds from the original games to give the remix a nostalgic feeling.  But since there are so many more instruments including a mixture of wavetable, FM, and oscillators that no single piece of old hardware could do, the mixture also ends up seeming a bit new.
