Gunpei Yokoi is a legendary and highly influential figure not just in Nintendo history, but in the history of the video games industry as a whole. Gunpei Yokoi was the inventor of the "Game Boy" and "Game & Watch" series, and the producer of several long-running, highly successful, and critically acclaimed Nintendo franchises, including Donkey Kong and Mario Bros. Discover the astonishing personality of this iconic figure in video game history, from his humble origins as a Nintendo maintenance engineer, through his classic and beloved toy inventions such as Ultra Hand, Ten Billion, and Duck Hunt, his pioneering inventions that changed the face of the video game industry such as the "Game Boy", the "Game & Watch", and even the D-pad that still appears on video game controllers to this day, right through to his parting company with Nintendo, and working on the Bandai Wonderswan, up until his tragic death in 1997. This exclusive book is dedicated to the life, philosophies, and many inventions of the former long-time Nintendo employee, and the man considered in Japan as "The God of Nintendo Toys". This tribute to Gunpei Yokoi includes in-depth reviews and information on every one of his inventions, toys, and humble collection of pixels yet to ascend to the very top of the video game industry, and yet to scale the heights of becoming gaming's most recognizable character.
