Fire Emblem: Awakening box art

FE Awakening Art Cover

Though Dark Horse is of course known for their many wonderful comic brands, they proved recently that they can also handle art books, most notably with the recent publication of Hyrule Historia. Now they have taken the reins of the Fire Emblem series to produce The Art of Fire Emblem: Awakening. This glorious art book will feature a behind the scenes look at the 3DS game, including character and weapon designs, profiles and even the entirety of the script, including every branching dialogue option! That’s a lot of banter, for sure.

A small glimpse of what the artbook holds!

For those interested in a visual piece of this fantastic game, it will go on sale first in comic book shops as of August 17th, 2016, and will later be available via bookstores as of August 30th. And of course, you will be able to preorder it at such places as Amazon, Barnes and Noble and IndieBound. Excuse me while I go and put in a preorder!
