In 2015, an essential document made its way to Japanese readers. Late last year, it was translated into German and Spanish. And now, the Super Mario Encyclopedia from Nintendo and Tokyopop is finally getting translated into English.
The Super Mario Encyclopedia covers every conceivable aspect of the Mario canon that occurred between the years 1985 and 2015. For example:
“Track the evolution of the Goomba, witness the introduction of Yoshi, and relive your favorite levels. This tome also contains an interview with producer Takashi Tezuka, tips to help you find every coin, star, sun, and mushroom–even explanations of glitches! With information on enemies, items, obstacles, and worlds from over thirty years of Mario, Super Mario Encyclopedia is the definitive resource for everything Super Mario!”
You can pre-order a special limited collectors’ edition of the Super Mario Encyclopedia from Amazon right here, priced at around thirty bucks. And at long last, the book comes out on October 23rd, 2018.
