NES/Famicom: a visual compendium (Hardback)
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.
