Back in July of last year, it was announced that an English-language version of 'Ask Iwata: Words of Wisdom', a Satoru Iwata tribute book, was set to published in 2021. That launch is still scheduled to go ahead next month, but it's now been reported that it'll release in plenty of other languages, too.
It was originally published in Japan and was put together by Hobonichi – a company founded in 1998 by EarthBound creator, Shigesato Itoi. Hobonichi has now confirmed that the book will launch in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Hungarian, Russian, Korean, Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese, alongside the already-announced English release, for a total of ten translated variants.
Interestingly, the French translation will actually be the first to launch, arriving tomorrow, 1st April. The English release is set for the 13th, the German version will land on the 20th, with the others to follow.
