The Rolls Royce of Retro Consoles Remembered in a Stunning New Art Book

The most powerful games console of the early 90s wasn't made by SEGA or Nintendo. Nothing at the time came close to replicating the true arcade experience - with compromises a-plenty on CPU or graphics. It was down to Shin Nihon Kikaku - or SNK - a small firm from Osaka, who stepped up to the mark and gave us the incredible NEOGEO AES.

NEOGEO: A Visual History from Bitmap Books is visual celebration of all things NEOGEO! Crammed full of beautiful visuals of the hardware, characters and concepts that made the NEOGEO the game-changing console it was. Collated and photographed from all over the world, each visual has been handpicked to appear in this exclusive book - the first officially licensed art book of its kind!

Exclusive Interviews

Exclusive interviews with key staff integral to the NEOGEO's history lift the lid on what it was like to work with the iconic console - including producer Yasuyuki Oda, artist Tatsuhiko Kanaoka (Falcoon) and composer Hideki Asanaka (sha-v).

High Quality Print

NEOGEO: A Visual History weighs in at a healthy 400 pages in length, A4 in size and available in hardback only. Premium metallic gold ink is used throughout and the binding employs thread rather than glue for extra durability. The book can also open flat, displaying each page's stunning visuals in all their glory!
