So I was looking on Amazon to see if they were going to have a guide for Valkyria Chronicles 2, but they had a Valkyria Chronicles artbook listed instead at $17 off the list price!

It's listed as having 400 pages, so it's probably the same thing as the Valkyria: Development Artworks (Japanese) book except a lot cheaper and in English.

http://www.amazon.co...uct/1926778162/

Publisher: Udon Entertainment (January 15, 2011)

Udon is the same company that released all of those Capcom artbooks and I have a few of them and they're really cool.


I emailed them and got a very quick response here it is:

"We should be doing a press release about the book in the next 2 weeks or so. But basically it is a localization of the 400 page Japanese book “Gallian Chronicles: Development Artworks”. Contents should be pretty much exactly the same as the Japanese version, only in English."

:)


Edit: New Lower Price: $31.49! :bouncy:

Barnes and Nobel: $33.74

I have the Japanese one, and it's a beautiful book. Highly recommended. I'll definitely be getting the English version. I love Valkyria Chronicles.

Wonder if this is going to be a whole new book all together or just a translation of the Japanese Development Artworks book. I was about to purchase the Japanese version, but if I can get it in english for $40 cheaper....

Wonderful find, I've been looking for an affordable copy of the Valkyria Chronicles art book, this being in English makes it that good of a bonus.

ooo nicee. I still haven't played VC yet (I do own it though) so I'll try and get to that before considering this. Art books are one my weaknesses though.

I really do want this if it's as nice as the Japanese one. I hope it's hardcover. I'll wait till more info is known.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Thanks so much for the heads up on this!! Pre-ordered! Though with this being Udon it probably won't end up coming out until Summer of next year since most of their stuff is always delayed.

Most US artbbooks as well as most Udon releases are softcover, unfortunately.

Op you are amazing, I've been trying to find this book all over the price without it being ridiculously overpriced on ebay.

The JP one was paperback as well.

If you want an idea of what kind of quality to expect, I would go to Borders and check out the Capcom artbooks by Udon. Mega Man, Mega Man X, Mega Man Zero, Okami, Street fighter, ect are all really well done.

In for one! Thanks, OP.

Agreed on all counts. The Okami book is absolutely beautiful, so if that is the quality then this will be stunning. I was just browsing my VC strat guide last night, matter of fact, and admiring how beautiful the character shots were.

Thanks for the heads up! I still need to play the game, but there's plenty of time for me to cancel before it's released if I decide I don't need it.

Ah, so they did stick to the January date I got quoted at Comic-Con a few weeks back :)

Two days off from my birthday too.

Suppose it is time to get Project 2-4 rolling again...

I emailed them and got a very quick response here it is:

"We should be doing a press release about the book in the next 2 weeks or so. But basically it is a localization of the 400 page Japanese book “Gallian Chronicles: Development Artworks”. Contents should be pretty much exactly the same as the Japanese version, only in English."
