As many fans will know, Honbichi released an official book detailing late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata’s discussions with members of the industry and the press – which was exclusive to Japan for the longest time. Well, English-speaking fans will finally get to read Iwata-san’s words for themselves!
VIZ Media has confirmed that they will be publishing an official English translation of the book in Spring 2021. As you can see above, the book will be titled ‘Ask Iwata’ – similar to the many online interviews released by Nintendo in the past.
