Bitmap Books latest Kickstarter campaign has ended pretty spectacularly, raising £224,773 (around $291,000) despite only asking for £25,000.

5,101 backers pledged their support for the book, which follows the NES Visual Compendium crowdfunding campaign that raised £190,214 ($246,282) last year. That particular book was subject to an intellectual property dispute by Nintendo before its Kickstarter ended, but this was apparently sorted out and the campaign continued after a short delay.

SNES/Super Famicom: A Visual Compendium will include game reviews, pixels artwork, exclusive interviews and much more besides. Were you one of the backers, or do you intend to pick this up at launch? Let us know with a comment.
