In our world of smartphones and Google, it can be hard to believe that there was once a time when gamers would have to consult a book for strategy tips. Yes, you read that right – a physical book, printed on real paper. Strategy guides have gone the way of the dodo in recent years, but perhaps the most incredible example produced has just resurfaced online.

Titled Super Mario 64 Complete Clear Guide Book, the Japanese strategy guide for the N64 game is a sight to behold. Instead of mere screenshots, the book is filled with 3D dioramas of each level – and you can now (virtually) flip through the whole thing. (Want to play Super Mario 64 right here and now?
