Bittersweet Ask Iwata book coming spring 2021 from Viz Media

The localized book will be available digitally and in print

Viz Media is releasing an English version of Hobonichi’s Iwata-San – a book about the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata, with insight from Shigeru Miyamoto and Shigesato Itoi – in spring 2021.

The localized book, Ask Iwata: Words of Wisdom from Nintendo’s Legendary CEO, will have digital and print editions, but the publisher hasn’t opened pre-orders or mentioned pricing details yet.

Ask Iwata “invites you to learn more about the president, game developer, and gamer who forever changed the video game industry as we know it.” Expect to find interviews, conversations, and tears.

We’ve seen fan-translated bits and pieces from the source 2019 material – and Hobonichi had “many inquiries and requests” about an official localization – so this felt like only a matter of time.

It’ll be a must-read for many of us, plain and simple.
