Pix'n Love's History Of Nintendo Volume 2 Goes On Sale 9th March

Pixn-Loves-History-Of-Nintendo-Volume-2-Goes-On-Sale-9th-MarchHopefully by now you've had plenty of time to dive into the deep end of Nintendo's unofficial past thanks to Florent Gorges' fantastic writing in The History of Nintendo. If so you'll be pleased to hear that Pix'n Love have announced that the follow up second volume which is set to look at the Game & Watch series will be in the shops shortly.

If we're completely honest, the depth and detail within Florent's book covered a wealth of information on the Kyoto based company we never even knew. As the first book cut off their sequential timeline just before the arrival of the Game & Watch series, we're very much excited at what information the second volume is set to bring on the LCD handheld games.

But enough from us, here is the official release from Pix'n Love regarding The History of Nintendo Volume 2:

The Game & Watch games, an incredible invention

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.

The first book on Nintendo pre-G&W was fantastic. The artwork they had was sharp and a lovely read!

Will be pre-ordering this one :)

Was it really £24.99? Could have sworn I paid less for the original book?
