That's good news.
Unfortunately, the package is not ready yet.

Did you try to contact the previous ITP owner?

You should not embed libraries. You also should not set Architecture: any.
If you want to see a i386-only binary packaged for amd64, you may look at
zsnes (though the proper way is multi-arch dpkg but it is not available in
unstable now).

You have a build system that uses git magic and branches while an
unpacked Debian source package is a directory with upstream sources from
upstream tarball(s) and debian/ directory with build files. Also, as you
include 3rd-party mods, you should ask about their distribution licenses
and mention them in debian/copyright.

There are some more or less minor things such as copyright notices in
descriptions and old Standards-Version, but they are not important for
now, as I could not even build the package.
