A7k2EhFCIAEO5b5An art book for Fire Emblem: Awakening is scheduled to come out on December 7 for 3,990 yen ($50). Artist Yusuke Kozaki shared the cover illustration on Twitter.


This book is packed with character art, event illustrations, soldiers, and weapon designs. As a treat for Fire Emblem fans, the Knights of Iris art book has rough illustrations when the game was early in development.


Fire Emblem: Awakening came out in Japan in April. Nintendo plans on releasing the 3DS game in North America and Europe next year.

    You’re tearing my wallet apart, Nintendo!

    • Though it’s a disappointment that we didn’t get the Awakening Blue 3DS, too, Nintendo would’ve demolished wallets everywhere had they given us that as well.

      • AnimusVox

        I feel bad to say it but I only really wanted the system, I didn’t want the game because I was never really into the series.
        Although since I’m open minded enough I was willing to give it a shot since it’s come with the system.
        But alas we will not be getting the system :’L

        • If you’re willing to give the series a try, go for it! We’re getting the game localized in a couple months (for the moment, Quarter Two of 2013 is the time frame of a release area). Like I said before, it’s disappointing that we’re not getting the special FE 3DS, but considering that we haven’t had a brand new Fire Emblem (New Mystery of the Emblem doesn’t count as we didn’t get that and it’s a re-remake) since Radiant Dawn, which was in 2007.

        • Hoshi星

          • YoshEE

      • lunier

  • Suicunesol

    Ooooh my Gooood…

    Why not pack it in as a pre-order bonus for Fire Emblem: Awakening, NoA? Ahhhh the book is too expensive for that…

    • Maybe a NA/EU Collector’s Edition, coupled with a soundtrack and or different box art.

  • raymk

    Ima day 1 that book by import and when it comes to U.S shores.

  • Gah, this just makes me want to play the game more. >_<

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Grrrr. The U.S version haven’t even come out and i am going to import this one first.T_T

    I can’t imagine the torture of trying to avoid the spoiler here.T_T

  • miju

    > spoiler on the cover

    Wow seriously? After all that time trying to convince all the new players that the masked man was Marth?

    • キロ

       They’re like, “Oh everybody in (Japan) has played this by now!” XD… never good to assume!

    • It was pretty obvious that it wasn’t marth…

      • miju

        It was obvious to me of course (DAT… BODY… CAN’T BE MARTH’S). There are some people I know who still think Marth is a chick though.

  • AnimusVox

    I love Yusuke Kozaki’s work <3

  • Oh hey, I didn’t know the art for this game was by Kozaki. Guess he’s getting good work these days. Wonder which manga/anime artist will design characters for the next Fire Emblem?

  • AlexanderPappas

    Every time I hear anything about this game every cell in my body explodes with hype. I want to play this so badly. The art style is really cool so I’ll be trying to get my hands on this art book to the best of my ability.
