The History of Nintendo Book Gets English Release

Until now, The History of Nintendo, published by Pix’n Love Publishing, was only ever released in French. However, this 240 page book has now been translated for an English language version.

The book spans the beginning of Nintendo in 1889 until the early 1980s, and contains more than 2,000 exclusive photographs and illustrations throughout the chapters. It highlights the “forgotten” areas of Nintendo’s 120 year span. For instance, information of Nintendo’s humble card-game creating beginning, long before they ventured into the video game and arcade market.

The book’s blurb perfectly sums up what content is found inside this large book on Nintendo’s history:
