Don’t Worry, Persona 4 Official Design Works Is Still Coming

By Ishaan . August 26, 2012 . 12:00pm


Late last year, we reported that Udon were going to publish two more of Atlus’ art books in North America—Persona 3 Official Design Works and Persona 4 Official Design Works. Both books contain character designs, rough sketches, backgrounds, and interviews with the games’ developers.


In case you lost track, the former was released last month. You can pick it up for $27.


The latter, Persona 4 Official Design Works, is still coming. Amazon have it listed for a September 11th release. It will cost $25 on their store.

    THANK THE LORD!!!!!!!!!  I”ve been waiting so long for this. The P3 official works was amazing and it made me so hyped up for this one

  • XYZ_JolteonZ980

    I thought it was dated for awhile, Ordered it along with the Dsgaea 3 one and the P3 one when Disgaea released. Good quality books, must buy. Wish it were hardcover like the upcoming Sonic one.

    I better mark my calendar for this one :))

    will this be at gamestop or will i have to get it off of amazon?

    • D-Rev

      You should be able to buy this from a bookstore. I don’t think Gamestop has ever sold artbooks before.

        hmmm ur right

      Thanks for your comment! We have a complete list of where you can get this book and other UDON art books here:

      Comic stores usually get our stuff a week or two early, so maybe check them out first!

  • Mazdian

    Ah, good thing I didn’t import it earlier! Go Udon!

  • Sardorim

    This happy cow has a lot of milk.

    • SMT

      and this milk is soooo testy xD

    • Milk all they want if this means P4-3 or P5.

    But it is region locked! …wait, that doesn’t work with artbooks


  • Y’know, for a PS2 game, Persona 4 is doing relentlessly well. It’s still extremely popular. Although some of it can be attributed to it’s port, I’d still say that it’s pretty amazing that it’s gotten enough momentum to spawn a fighting game, a port, a play, an art book and an anime.

  • Enma_Kozato

    It was pushed back? Udon seems to do that for the artbooks I really want. Not too long ago I preordered Sengoku Basara’s artbook, but the release date changed three times and I cancelled my order. I luckily have a friend who still has her order open, so she updates me whenever there’s a change.

    Hey folks! Glad to see that despite the delays (- – ;) you’re all still really excited about Persona 4: Official Design Works! As we posted today, the book will be out in comic book stores everywhere on Wednesday August 29th, and we’ll have copies at PAX Prime this weekend, booth #3828! Although Amazon is giving a September 11th ship date, we wouldn’t be surprised if it shipped out a little earlier either.

    Thanks for your continued interest and support, we think you’re gonna love P4!
