If you survived long enough to appreciate the twisted, melancholy beauty of Dark Souls
, maybe prepare to buy Udon's
art book. After releasing Dark Souls: Design Works
in Japan last year, the comic book studio is bringing an English version to North America in October.
The 128 pages of the 8.25"x11.75" hardcover book span the game's worlds, characters, weapons, and monsters, including concept art and sketches. Design Works
also features interviews with director Hidetaka Miyazaki and various From Software artists.
If you're looking for something to tide you over until March 2014
, Dark Souls: Design Works
has a list price of $40, although at the time of publishing Amazon
is selling it for $29.
