If you're looking for a new book for your living room, we may have just the thing!

This beautifully designed NES/Famicom book offers a snapshot of the best games and developers from the time across all the territories. It offers a heavy dose of nostalgia and is a sure-fire talking point for anyone's coffee table.

The book has contributions from developers from Rare, Interplay and Codemasters and journalists from gaming magazines such as Mean Machines and Edge.

The book is the latest in a string of Kickstarter campaigns from Bitmap Books. Previous books have featured the ZX Spectrum and Commodore C64.

Duck Hunt, Zelda, Mario and Mega Man will be just some of the featured games

With its cutting edge graphics and extensive catalogue of iconic games, the NES/Famicom played a huge part in the history of video games. It stormed onto the market and immediately raised the bar with now classic games such as Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt and Mega Man. Over its lifespan across the world, the NES/Famicom had varied success but it's fair to say that classic franchises such as Mario, Metroid, Zelda and Final Fantasy simply wouldn't be so successful if it wasn't for it introducing them to gamers worldwide.

The book will be at least 242 pages long. Further enhancements to the book (such as more pages) will be made depending on how much is raised through the Kickstarter.

The book is yours for £25 for the softback version and £35 for the hardback. It can be shipped anywhere round the world.

You still have 29 days to back the Kickstarter, what are you waiting for?!
