Power-Up: How Japanese Video Games Gave the World an Extra Life (ISBN 0-7440-0424-1) is a 2005 book by Chris Kohler. It explores the video game market in Japan and the history of video games in both Japan and North America. Kohler argues that Japan’s role in the history of video games in America is undervalued. It includes personal interviews with many influential figures, such as Shigeru Miyamoto, most of them translated from Japanese.
