The history of Nintendo

£29.99

Product description

1889-1980 From playing cards to Game and Watch.

This highly detailed publication delves into the rich and varied (and often forgotten) 120-year history of the world's leading video game company. For the very first time, Nintendo's historical product portfolio is catalogued in painstaking and loving detail, with over 500 card games, tabletop games, toys, electronic, and arcade games, all compiled into one superbly crafted book. This book details Nintendo's humble beginnings as a playing card manufacturer, charting progress through the entire range of toys and games, including such legendary products as Love Tester, Ten Billion, Ultra Hand, Custom Gunman, and hundreds more, progressing up to the first video arcade games, home consoles, and Game & Watch series.

Soft back book. The cover is protected by a plastic sleeve. There are some marks on the plastic sleeve, where stickers have been removed. Otherwise the book is in very good condition throughout.
