Feather Artbook coming to US and UK

Postby Kaihaku » Mon Mar 12 2012 1:30pm

Just spotted this news...

Udon To Publish Shining Force Feather: Design Works Art Book
Believe it or not, Udon are publishing a “Design Works” art book for a Shining Force game in North America and the U.K. Specifically, the book is for Shining Force Feather for the Nintendo DS, and Amazon have it listed for a June release.

The retail price for the book is $40, but Amazon are selling it for $26.30 (£19.49 on Amazon U.K.). The Design Works art book includes character profiles, rough designs, storyboards, interviews, and creator commentary.

A big thanks to MiauMiaut for the heads up!


And here's the US Amazon listing, I've gone ahead and preordered it. Estimated delivery is mid-June.

Edit: Did someone report on this already? I just checked Udon and they announced this back on January 1st. Here's their blog entry.

What the hell Oo
I don't get the point of publishing a book who contains mostly things from a game which never came here...

I actually think it makes some business sense... Udon isn't exactly a huge publisher and they know that Shining Force Feather has a decent fanbase. I'm not the only one who bothered to import the game and many more have pirated it, so I'm sure that they could make a profit on a limited printing. Don't know if they will, but it's possible.

Udon publishes a lot of artbooks over here. I wouldn't be surprised if they also published the VC3 artbook even though it didn't come over here, since they did the artbooks for the first two games.

This is just awesome, since I really didn't want to have to pay $50+ to buy the SFF one.

I find this hilarious... since nobody outside Japan is willing to take the risk of releasing the game in English, but they think its artwork would sell?

Oh, well. At least Feather does have pretty arts.

I don't know what the status of the art book as in the US any more but I got an email from Amazon UK saying that their supplier informed them it's no longer available and therefore cancelled :(
