Capcom educates kids on the video game industry


    Capcom has an interesting idea, which may help shine light on breaking into the video game business at an early age. They are working with Gakken to publish “Secrets of the Video Games”, a comic book that explains the ins and outs of the video game industry. Secrets of the Video Games is part of Gakken’s understanding series, which are used as supplemental teaching materials in elementary schools. The book has information about different video game careers, the process of developing games and how competitive Japan is in the video game industry. Secrets of the Video Games will be distributed to 24,000 elementary schools and 2,700 public libraries across Japan. While Capcom has no plans to release this in North America you can see some pictures of the book past the break.
