If you, like me, preordered Pix’n Love Publishing’s upcoming releases The History of Mario: 1981-1991 Rise of an Icon from Myth to Reality and Gunpei Yokoi: The Life & Philosophy of Nintendo’s God of Toys when they were first announced for English release back in 2011, you might be wondering what’s going on with them.

Originally due for release in “Q1 2012”, the books have consistently slipped, and just missed their most recent updated release date of May 2013. Such is life in the world of book publishing. There is a ray of sunshine, though – both books have just appeared for preorder on Amazon US with release dates of January 7, 2014.

You can order The History of Mario: 1981-1991 and Gunpei Yokoi: The Life & Philosophy of Nintendo’s God of Toys now.
