“The Valkyria Chronicles artbooks have been blockbusters for UDON,” said UDON Entertainment Marketing Director Chris Butcher. “The Books are gorgeous and incredibly thorough, mixing illustration art with technical military-style drawings, and a complex story. I’m so happy we could work with our licensing partners to bring out the third volume. This one is definitely for the fans!”
Completing the series of amazing artbooks that began with the UDON releases of Valkyria Chronicles: Design Archive and Valkyria Chronicles 2: World Artworks, this third entry in the series also features a wealth of amazing illustrations by lead character designer and famed illustrator Raita Honjou. Chock-full of character designs and profiles, vehicle and weapon designs, promotional art, and tons of creator commentary and long-form interviews, this is one spectacular collection!
Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks also features a thorough story summary of the game, which is unreleased in English. Valkyria Chronicles 3 is a side-story to the first game in the series, making it a unique entry but also allowing cameos and crossover appearances by characters from the first two games, including Welkin Gunther, Alica Melchiott, Avan Hardins and more.
Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks will arrive in comic book stores and wherever books are sold in December, 2012 for $49.99.
