Art book and graphic novel distributor UDON Entertainment will be releasing an art book for Persona 4 Arena, titled Persona 4 Arena: Official Design Works. The paperback design book will contain 176 pages of flavorful artwork by Shigenori Soejima at 8.25 x 11.75 inches, and will have English translated interviews, character backgrounds, and story information.
This is perfect for the fans who want to learn more about the game’s creation while appreciating the translated texts. Here are some of the preview images below. Not all images are final and are still pending for review by UDON itself:
Persona 4 Arena: Official Design Works will be releasing in July 2013 and will be running at a retail price of $39.99. The art book is currently available for pre-order at Amazon, and can be purchased at a discount for now. So if anybody wants to save money buying this art book, then Amazon is the best choice.
For those itching for more Shin Megami Tensei content by UDON, there will be an English release for the art book Devil Survivor: Official Material Collection, which had been announced by UDON before PAX East. This art book will be released in May 2013, and will contain the same page quantity and dimensional format as Persona 4 Arena’s.
This year looks to be a very good year for Shin Megami Tensei fans, as the fourth game in the mainline series is coming this summer, along with two art books by an amazing artist and distributed by a quality ancillary publication group. Previous art book releases include Disgaea, Megaman, stylized Street Fighter and Darkstalkers graphic novels, and just recently Atelier and Growlanser. Click here to visit UDON’s page
