    Your book makes me feel exciting to come back for Neogeo again. I will have pre-order if you are ready ... I will choose both normal and special edition

    Thank for nice doing ...

    No worries Saad, we are currently planning for pre-orders to open next month.

    A new dedicated page will be set up on the Bitmap Books website. I expect the pre-order email will be sent to those who are signed up to the Bitmap Books newsletter. Other Bitmap Books pre-orders have opened at 7am UK time. I'll ensure the link is posted here too.

    We have now received all the comments from SNK following the translation of the book into Japanese. SNK have reviewed everything so we have a fair bit to work through and make changes. Fact checking and information sources are also required for the parts they can't verify. So all of this will take a few days at least. We are still committed to the 5th of June for the launch of the pre-orders. We'll aim to post some teaser images soon.

    Are you allowed to name some things that have to be changed? Would be interesting to know what's important to Osaka.

    The changes from SNK generally related to anything 'legal', without going into the detail, such as trademarks are present, rights are acknowledged etc. Anything to do with 3rd parties, SNK is very sensitive about.The whole Aruze era and subsequent Chinese buy out is also a sensitive area so we need to work on that section. Mostly it's just minor edits or rewording - it's just there's a fair volume to work through.

    How long after the book is preordered, can we expect it to ship?

    Any way to add another Bitmap Book to the preorder to save on shipping cost to the U.S.

    The book should go to print in late May. It's then 12 weeks approx. for the finished copies to received back in the UK. I'd estimate it should ship at the start of September. I would expect you will be able to add another book to save on shipping but can't confirm that for sure. The answer should be covered in the FAQs once the pre-orders are open.

    Cool! Can't wait!

    After making the revisions/additions requested by SNK, do they go over the book once again?
    Does this process repeat until both you and SNK is ok with the end product?

    (I would imagine using PDF files, publishing programs, and email this process is fairly quick process.)

    Once we have made the revisions and provided some requested sources I'm hopeful that should be it and we are OK to proceed. The process hasn't been as quick as we would have liked due to the translation process. It does feel like we are on the home straight now!

    Short update from Bitmap Books on the NeoGeo Book with an image of the book cover: http://mailchi.mp/bitmapbooks/bitmap...may-newsletter


    Thanks to everyone who has waited patiently for some news about NEOGEO: A VISUAL HISTORY since we announced it back in February.

    We're delighted to say that the book is very nearly complete and currently in the final stages of proofing and checking. Watch this space as we're currently planning a proper update where we can share lots more information and designed pages.

    Pre-orders will open on Monday 5th June and it's on schedule to be released in the late summer.

    Not feeling the book cover at all.

    If you wanted to use the "visual" aspect for the cover, I think it would have been better to have done a collage or gotten one of the artists at SNK to draw up some original art.

    Yeah, I have to say that the cover misses the mark. You had the right idea with the black and gold but the art just sucks the life of it. Nice big "Neo-Geo" logo in gold foil on the black would have been infinitely better, clean and simple.

    I'd tend to agree. The gold foil logo on black/dark gray would work best, and instantly be recognizable/synonymous with the AES.

    Agreed. That's a horrible cover. As above, either the Neo Geo logo or a collage would be more appropriate.
