A couple of years ago, the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia came out in Japan. Nintendo is now finally working together with publishers such as Dark Horse to bring the book west.
Amazon UK, Amazon Germany, and Amazon France all have the Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia up for pre-order. It also has pages on Amazon US and Amazon Canada, though it can’t be reserved there just yet. All sites are currently pointing to a June 15 release.
The Super Mario Bros. Encyclopedia contains 256 pages. It’s packed with information and art for 17 different games. You’ll find explanations of characters, items, and level designs plus various interviews with the developers and anecdotes.
