Nintendo will publish an official NES history book this November

playingwithpowerAre 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.
