Supercade Returns With A Visual History Of Console Gaming’s “Golden Age”

From the NES to the Xbox.

Fans of video game art books may well be aware of the name Supercade; written by Van Burnham (Wired, Electronic Gaming Monthly, Official US PlayStation Magazine, Retro Gamer), the first volume charted the period between 1971-1984, when arcade gaming drove video games into popular culture. Packed with written history, full-colour images, promotional material and much more, Supercade was named one of the Top Ten Books of 2001 by LA Weekly and was also nominated for an IPPY Award.

After almost two decades, Burnham is back with a second volume, covering the period between 1985 and 2001. The book will document the rise of consoles and the ascension of Nintendo via its NES, and will take the reader up to the turn of the millennium with the arrival of the Xbox and the exit of Sega from the hardware arena.
