Product Description

A retrospective of the early Japanese videogame industry, comprising over 30 interviews with developers of the era, and including never-before-seen period photographs, rare press adverts and an illustrated hardware guide.

Comprising interviews with lesser documented developers at companies including Sega, Enix, Capcom, Hudson Soft and Nihon Falcom, Japansoft: An Oral History offers fresh and diverse perspectives on many of the defining games of their time.

A re-edited digest of game journalist John Szczepaniak’s three volume series, The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers, this edition adds brand new, specially conducted interviews with figures including Giles Goddard (Star Fox programmer), Richard Garriott (originator of Ultima), and Robert Woodhead (co-originator of Wizardry).

A companion to the critically acclaimed Britsoft: An Oral History, this publication sees editor Alex Wiltshire and leading design agency Julia return with a multilayered and eclectic publication that offers a unique reading experience through interlinked interviews that can be read in any order.
