Arcade Mania in French!

Those copies of Arcade Mania in the photo above are indeed en fran├žais, and it’s truly exciting to see that the French edition of the book is now back from the printers. The book — with a slightly changed title of Japan Arcade Mania — is published in France by Pix’N Love Editions, and although I’m not sure when the book will be showing up in stores there, it is available for purchase directly from the Pix’N Love website as of today.

Let me also point you to our English website for the book if you want more info. Below, pages from the French edition — it’s nice to see that Andrew‘s layouts work just as well in other languages. And speaking of Andrew, let me point you also to his latest baby, the just-launched Otaku Encyclepdia, which is now on sale in Japan. I will be covering the book soon — just haven’t had the time to write a proper post about it — but let me assure you that it fits quite neatly in the “series” with Arcade Mania and Matt Alt’s Yokai Attack.
