This Fall, Udon will release two new art books based on Falcom’s The Legend of Heroes series of games—The Legend of Heroes: The Illustrations and The Legend of Heroes: The Characters. Below are descriptions the two books from Udon.
The Legend of Heroes: The Illustrations weighs in at more than 272 pages, and is comprised entirely of gorgeous, fully-rendered artwork created for the games, including pin-ups, story artwork, advertising art, and much more. The Legend of Heroes: The Characters is also 272 pages, and is a character-designers dream come true!
It’s full to the brim with character designs, costumes, facial expressions, rough concepts, and tons more! Both books have been completely translated into English, and the artwork contained within covers the games Trails of Blue, Trails of Zero, and the Trails in the Sky trilogy, as well as the “Trails” artworks from the spin-off game “Ys vs. Trails in the Sky: Alternative Saga.”
The Legend of Heroes: The Characters and The Legend of Heroes: The Illustrations will be released simultaneously this November. Both will be 272 pages in length each, and cost $45, but Amazon are offering them at a discounted price, as per usual.
Below is a preview of the two books.
