In late 2015 we told you about the upcoming book, The Art of Fire Emblem: Awakening; at the time it was planned for a Summer release. It didn't hit that target, but a retweet by Nintendo of America was a handy reminder that it's now very close.
Dark Horse Comics is the publisher; it's a 320 page hardcover book with the following selling points:
In-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the smash-hit Nintendo 3DS game, from beautifully illustrated renditions of your favorite characters to storyboards for in-game events, character designs, weapon designs, character profiles, and the entirety of the script with every possible branch of dialogue!
* The full script—including every possible outcome!
* Surprising character information!
It's out on 18th October in North America and 20th October in the UK / EU. If you're in NA you can support Dark Horse Comics by buying direct from its website right here, with the cost being $39.99.
As expected, Amazon is undercutting the Dark Horse Comics store heavily, so those options are below, as a hardcover or Kindle / Comixology download. (Please note that these Amazon links are automatically affiliated, with a small percentage of any related sales going to Nintendo Life).
- Amazon UK - £20.39 (Hardcover) / £12.37 (Kindle & Comixology)
- Amazon US - $25.46 (Hardcover) / $15.42 (Kindle & Comixology)
It can be a tough call between paying full price direct to publishers (an option for North America) or taking the cheaper deal elsewhere. Either way, this book looks lovely.
