Hey Guys,  I'm in Canada and just received my Art of Final Fantasy slipcase edition today.  I was shocked.  I ordered it from chapters/indigo .ca     Did the date change?  It shows still as pre-order on both US and CDN sites.   In the unboxing video it mentions July 17th as a revised date.

 

Did they screw up and send me it early?

I often get books a week or so before their publish date. It doesn't seem like book publishers are as stringent on street date as, say, game or movie publishers are.

 

Related to this, it looks like Udon pushed back the Bayonetta art book to November according to amazon http://www.amazon.co...uct/1926778421/. Was looking forward to getting it this month too.

For those who had the autographed Brutal Legend art book order pending:

 

Sorry for the delay! Double Fine is currently in the process of transitioning their order fulfillment and customer service to Fangamer. We're currently expecting to have your order shipped off within the next couple of weeks (we're still waiting to receive the signed slipcases from Double Fine). We'd also be happy to process a refund for your order if you'd like. Thank you very much for your patience, and please let me know if you have any other questions!

FYI, Amazon's release date is bullsh*t. Here's a post from Udon (http://www.udonenter...out-book-dates/). According to their schedule (http://www.udonenter.../blog/schedule/) the Eyes of Bayonetta is still TBD.

According to Amazon, Persona 4 Arena Design Works has been pushed back to 2014.  I'm just going to cancel my preorder and wait until the book is in stock.

Blue Canvas is publishing a hardcover art book for God of War: Ascension (MSRP $69.99). Sounds like it'll be a beast at 400 pages!

First review for the God of War: Ascension art book: http://www.parkablog...f-war-ascension

 

It can be pre-ordered for $69.99 plus shipping here: http://shop.bluecanv...t-book-preorder

 

Also, it sounds like this will eventually be sold by Amazon (September?) if you prefer to wait for a potential lower price and cheaper shipping.

Edit: Potential Amazon link: http://www.amazon.co...ension art book

I will not even question buying this if it magically hits $45 or lower when it gets put up on Amazon. Anything higher and I will have to do some serious debating.. haha

FYI, you can now buy it from Amazon. The price is still $69.99, but it's Prime eligible.

Bummer they accidentally mirrored the book when they printed it. Maybe you can get a replacement?

Damn... I didn't even see the GoW artbook. Kinda pricy at $70 but I was pretty happy with the Journey artbook from BlueCanvas.

Blue Canvas is printing a second edition of the Journey art book. The first 500 orders will be signed by the game's Art Director, Matt Nava. The book is $60 and shipping is currently free.

On a separate note, am I SOL finding an Art of Borderlands 2 book at non-scalper prices?

I got this during the first printing.  An absolutely gorgeous, high quality art book for one of my favorite games ever.  Highly recommended!

You can try buying it directly through BradyGames' website. (I say 'try' because sometimes they list stuff that is out of print. I ordered a Red Dead GOTY guide last year --- only to receive a cancellation email a few months later.)

As an animator I love collecting artbooks and using them as references for my work and seeing other's creative processes.

 

Regardless of quality or size of this book, I love the design in Demon/Dark Souls so much that I will take anything haha
