NES/Famicom: a visual compendiumNEW STOCK ARRIVING ON 17th DECEMBER
With its cutting edge graphics and extensive catalogue of iconic games, the NES/Famicom played a huge part in the history of videogaming.
Nintendo’s console stormed onto the market and immediately raised the bar with classic titles such as Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., Mega Man, The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem and many more. Over the course of its 20-year lifespan the console sold in excess of 60 million units, making Nintendo a household name, and introducing youngsters everywhere to a whole new world of characters and stories. For many, this would be a turning point in their lives, leading them to become artists, game designers and programmers. It helped to popularise manga and anime among Western gamers, and brought icons of Western culture into Japanese homes. Nintendo’s little 8-bit console changed the world of entertainment forever, and its influence cannot be overstated.
NES/Famicom: a visual compendium aims to showcase the very best pixel art, box art and product design on each system here at Bitmap Books. Spread over 536 pages, it features more than 170 classic games, with articles on the leading developers, interviews with key figures in the industry and mini-features on subjects such as packaging, fan art and unreleased games.
Each book comes in a 3mm protective board slipcase which has a lenticular fascia and is shrink-wrapped.
Please note that some content may not be suitable for young children.
Shipping was not the greatest
Overall, the shipping was fast and the book is awesome. Unfortunately, the bag/box that the book was shipped in arrived pretty beat down. So much so that the decorative case around the book had a pretty significant ding on one of the corners. This caused the book to be pretty jammed in there. It took me quite some time to shimmy the book free of the case. The entire time I was trying to work it out, I was nervous that I'd damage the spine or pages.
This is a beautiful book. The fold-outs are a lot of fun. It was packaged immaculately and the delivery was very fast. I think it arrived in better condition than most new books I see in stores!
Nes excellence in print.
Love these books
These books are just great. They are shipped very very well first of all. The books themselves are super high quality and the content is great. I will be buying more!
