Bashcraft Penned Arcade Book Getting French Edition

Arcade Mania, the book on Japanese arcades I wrote, will be translated for an upcoming French version.

French game book publisher Pix n'Love Editions will be bringing the book to wider audience. Pix n'Love is best known for its books on the PC Engine and the history of Nintendo (Pix n'Love's Florent Gorges has a monthly column in Japanese mag Nintendo Dream.)

Pix n'Love was planning to do an arcade book, but fell in love with Arcade Mania and wanted to bring it to the French speaking public. The book will be translated into French by one of the founders of Shmup.com, a great database about shooting games.

The French edition is slated for release this June. Can't wait.
