As we all know by now, Capcom has been sanctioning various celebratory products for Mega Man's 25th Anniversary. It may have been saving the best non-game product for late in the day, however, as Udon Entertainment has given more details on the brand new official series art book — MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works.
A standard edition will arrive in North America in September for $60, though the Amazon listing already has it available at a pre-order price of $42.31, at the time of writing. It'll come in at 432 pages and be packed with artwork and content covering both the classic Mega Man and Mega Man X franchises, with the official blurb promising never-before seen goodies and interviews with those behind the famous mascot.
MM25: Mega Man & Mega Man X Official Complete Works is an in-depth chronicle of the amazing art created across 25 years of games in the Mega Man series by the good folks at Capcom! Featuring over 400 pages of official game art, concept designs and sketches, rare pin-ups, and all-new tribute art, this is a stunning art book collection that every fan of the Blue Bomber will want on their shelves. UDON Entertainment has faithfully translated the entire book into English, including production notes, creator comments, and three all-new exclusive interviews with the creators from across the history of the series!
Not only that, but Udon Entertainment will be selling a gorgeous-looking limited edition hardcover versions on a first-come first-serve basis at Comic-Con (San Diego) between July 17th - 21st for $100. Any left over will then be sold on Udon's site and at PAX Prime in August; check out Udon Entertainment's site for details of the Comic-Con appearance.
