Japanese firm Hobonichi is to release a compilation of Nintendo’s Iwata Asks interviews in book format.
Iwata Asks is a series of in-depth interviews conducted by the late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata with key figures behind the creation of Nintendo software and hardware, including Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto.
Hobonichi is headed by Shigesato Itoi, creator of the Mother series, which is better known as Earthbound in the West. Iwata was a friend of Itoi’s, served as a programmer and producer on the cult RPG series, and also worked as Hobonichi’s IT manager.
The site notes that Hobonichi has translated its popular Techo planners in recent years, but that it hasn’t released English editions of many of its other products.
