Pre-Orders Open For 'The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers' DVD Documentary

The-Untold-History-of-Japanese-Game-Developers-DVDBack in May 2013, John Szczepaniak of Hardcore Gaming 101 successfully launched a Kickstarter project to fund his dream documenting the history behind Japanese video game developers. Having now toured the Far East speaking to influential figures, The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers is well underway - with its complimentary DVD now available.

As well as putting together the most concise book ever published on the topic, the aforementioned DVD gifts us nearly four hours of interview footage with the likes of Ryuichi Nishizawa of Wonderboy, Michitaka Tsuruta of Solomon's Key, Yuzo Koshiro of Sega, and Kotaro Hayashida of Alex Kidd. Amongst these interviews are also various clips of unreleased game footage and photo slideshows from Szczepaniak's travels.

Only 1,000 copies of The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers DVD are being pressed, with the first 500 being dispatched to Kickstarter backers. Priced up at £40 each, those interested in getting more insider knowledge behind the games we've grown up with should make haste. Pre-orders have opened up on Hardcoregaming101.
