Nintendo and Kadokawa are set to release a brand new Xenoblade Chronicles 2 art book called 'Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record'.

The book will feature illustrations from the game's main character designer Masatsugu Saito, four special illustrations by rare blade designer CHOCO, and contains art from both Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna – The Golden Country. Characters, weapons, rare blades, titans, monsters, objects, and more will all appear.

It also includes lines from the game's most memorable moments as part of a 'story playback' feature, and all of this content is wrapped up inside the gorgeous, 352-page book shown below. It's A4 in size and is available in paperback.

Pre-orders have now gone live on Amazon Japan (the book is scheduled to launch on 2nd February) and costs ¥ 3,132 (approx. £22 / $29). While no western release has been confirmed, Amazon Japan does offer international shipping to most areas so importing shouldn't be an issue.
