Upcoming Book Releases: Nier, Gravity Daze, Nioh, Horizon Zero Dawn and more!

First off: happy birthday, Phoenix Wright! Everyone’s favorite Ace Attourney turns 15 and before anyone can shout “Objection!” when he has a drink on that, take a closer look at the beautiful Encyclopedia 2001 to 2016 that Kadakowa Shoten has collected to celebrate the occasion.

And then there are 256 pages of visuals, image boards, character illustrations and more from the two wonderfully inventive and stylistic Gravity Daze games, combined in one book. Sporting a cover designed by artist Takeshi Oga, it also contains all the panels from the “Gravity Dream” Comic. And as the arts book to the first part is not available anymore and the world guide to the second is reaching its pre-order limit, this would be the perfect opportunity for fans to get it all in one!

Speaking of reaching the pre-order limit: the demand for the Nier:Automata world guide was apparently higher than the manufacturer expected. And so while everyone who hasn’t secured their copy yet has to wait for re-stocking, Kadokawa releases a Strategy Guide Book with a world guide, weapons and settings information and commentaries on characters. So this might be a bit more Japanese text heavy than the other book.

Monster Hunter XX also gets two accompanying books: one game guide and one “bible”. No information is known about the content yet, but we will update you as soon as anything is published. The Last Guardian adds to its guide book a number of sketches, early concepts, storyboards and interviews. The Valkyria Azure Revolution world setting book concentrates on the visuals, especially the world building process, mechanical and weapon concept drawings and lots of other steampunk designs.

And here is a quick update on all the highlights that you might have missed. Especially interesting is The Art of Ghost in the Shell that accompanies the upcoming release of the live action movie.
