New Edition of Power-Up


Speaking of Nintendo, this week marks the release of a brand spanking new edition of Chris Kohler’s Power-Up: How Japanese Video Games Gave the World An Extra Life. I worked for Chris the year I was a contributor to Wired‘s Game|Life (in 2008), and always wanted to read his book, but it’s been long out-of-print. Not only is it finally back in print, but this updated edition includes a new chapter that looks at the life Satoru Iwata (the late Nintendo president).
