Are you hoping to find an NES Classic Edition under the Christmas tree this December? If so, you might also want to ask Santa for Playing With Power: Nintendo NES Classics, an official guide to the NES published by Prima Games and created in collaboration with Nintendo.
Playing With Power: Nintendo NES Classics will be released on November 18, and it’s packed with a ton of retro-tastic touches:
- Exclusive embossed slipcase holds this hardcover tome in a clever package that resembles a classic NES Game Pak!
- A fascinating retrospective on 17 NES classics… including Super Mario Bros. 3, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda!
- Interviews and commentary from Nintendo visionaries who pioneered this era of gaming.
- A showcase of vintage advertising and priceless excerpts from Nintendo Power magazine back issues!
- Plus hand-drawn maps, character and game environment art, and much more!
Bitmap Books recently completed a Kickstarter campaign for The Unofficial NES/Famicom: A Visual Compendium, a similar reference tome that should be available in January.
