Book on Japanese Arcades
« on: August 04, 2008, 03:32:45 PM »
Coming out in Japan soon, written by a Kotaku editor.

Available for preorder on Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Arcade-Mania-Turbo-charged-Japans-Centers/dp/4770030789

I don't expect it to be good, but it would be nice to be pleasantly surprised.

i'd be interested in the daigo umehara interview  :lol:
i wonder what other players contributed? 
and with content from arcade owners and employees this could possibly provide a rare insight into what makes the top players tick   :)

I was just going to make a new topic but I can write it here:

Any good books about japanese gaming/games and arcades? I got Ashcraft's book, quite amusing but short. I wanted to get Power-Up: Japanese Video Games Gave the World an Extra Life, however it's out of stock on Amazon, and there's nothing on eBay.

Is there anything in English (or French/German) about Japanese gaming and Arcades?
