Even though we haven't finished reading the first volume of Pix 'N Love's fantastic bible of Nintendo's past, the retro gaming publishers are gearing up the release of the second book. The History of Nintendo Volume 2, featuring a wealth of information detailing the wonderful world of the Nintendo Game and Watch.
Set to follow on from the very last page of volume one, Florent Gorges picks up where he left off in 1979 to continue the legacy of the Japanese juggernaut. Presumably starting with the very first Game and Watch- Ball, you can expect the same level of detail within this book as the last as the author travels all the way to 1991 with the last game in the handheld series- Mario the Juggler.
The History of Nintendo #2 is entirely dedicated to the fabulous Game & Watch games, a famous line of electronic LCD games which was very popular in the early 80's. Inside this long awaited book, you'll find the very detailed and exclusive chronicles of how this invention, which revolutionized the whole entertainment industry, came to be. You'll find out about the difficulties encountered during their development, the secrets behind this new concept at the time and dozens of unexpected documents. Aside from these chronicles, you'll also find a complete review of every single model ever released, as well as revelations about some collector's items, extremely rare today.
With 200 pages and over 1,500 pictures, you'll finally have all the keys to understand how Nintendo managed, in a few years, to become one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry.
