More great stuff underway!

Some months ago, I posted about the beautiful 2013 and 2014 editions of Nintendo's company guide, given to (prospective) staff of Nintendo in Japan.

I recently managed to get my hands on a few more of these; editions 2009 to 2012, to be precise.

These fantastically designed books provide a rare glimpse into the kitchen of our favorite (video) game developer from Kyoto. You can expect full coverage here soon!

(A bit) more news about the Before Mario book

This week we released some new information about the upcoming Before Mario book.

More information will become available soon, but for now here's a first glimpse of the content within this book.

"The period from 1965 to 1983 was a pivotal time for Nintendo, during which it transformed from manufacturer of traditional playing cards into a key player in the area of electronic entertainment. BEFORE MARIO provides a richly illustrated overview of over fifty Nintendo toys and games that are representative of these formative years."

BEFORE MARIO is 228 pages chockfull with information and hundreds of pictures taken exclusively for this book. It measures 24 by 20 centimeters.

A limited edition of 500 will be available during pre-order, with alternative cover.
