Mecha Arcade Game Border Break Now Has An Artbook In The West


Udon Entertainment have published a new artbook based on the Japanese mecha arcade game Border Break. Titled Border Break Artworks 2006 – 2012, the book contains 176 pages of technical drawings, rough concepts, character art, mech profiles, creator commentary, and more.


While Border Break has never really caught on in the West, Kotobukiya and the Good Smile Company have both been releasing figurines based on the franchise, which can be imported by Western fans.


The Border Break Artworks book is available now via Amazon and other stores, and you can find a preview of it below.
