The Late President of Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, who passed away July last year has had his early life chronicled in a book. He is widely known for his work on the Nintendo DS and Wii but the book takes us back further to when he was a part-time programmer for Hal Laboratory in the 1980’s.


The book is a collection of anecdotes and information from classmates and childhood friends from High School & College. It is currently only available in Japanese but hopefully if it sells enough copies, It might get translated for other regions. You can now download it for Kindle via Amazon and will cost around 7$ (¥690). Will you be picking up a copy of this book right away regardless of it being in Japanese, or will you wait until it is localized? Let us know in the comments below.
