Details for the book are listed below:

  • Exclusive embossed slipcase holds this hardcover tome in a clever package that resembles a classic NES Game Pak!
  • A fascinating retrospective on 17 NES classics—including Super Mario Bros. 3, Donkey Kong, and The Legend of Zelda!
  • Interviews and commentary from Nintendo visionaries who pioneered this era of gaming.
  • A showcase of vintage advertising and priceless excerpts from Nintendo Power magazine back issues!
  • Plus hand-drawn maps, character and game environment art, and much more!

Only a handful of the 17 titles that will be covered have been mentioned. The other games are presumably other first-party titles. Prima describe the book as “a veritable love letter” to fans.

In other Nintendo-related news, the company announced that they will be releasing the a tiny version of the original NES that comes packaged with 30 games. The mini NES is launching on November 11, conveniently one week ahead of Playing with Power’s release.
