Hobonichi has revealed plans to produce a book that will celebrate late Nintendo president Satoru Iwata’s life and conversations.

EarthBound (or Mother) series creator Shigesato Itoi founded Hibonichi back in 1998, a company that is known for designing and producing products such as haramaki and the popular Hobonich Techo notebooks.

For this special book, though, they have collected quotes from articles such as those on Hobo Nikkan Itoi Shinbun or the Iwata Asks discussions on the official Nintendo website.

And while Hobonichi director Yasuhiro Nagata has tweeted photos of the book’s cover, he’s added that he will share more about it next month.

Whether it will be localized into English is another question, as, even though some material has already been translated, that would likely require a western publisher to lend a hand.
