UDON Entertainment Proudly Presents: Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks

The third and final entry in the stunning Valkyria Chronicles series of artbooks! Coming December 2012

SEPTEMBER 5, 2012—Fans of the Valkyria Chronicles series of artbooks—we've been listening! For months you've been begging, pleading, and demanding the release of the third and final artworks collection based on SEGA's critically acclaimed Valkyria Chronicles tactical RPG series... well the wait is over! Today Udon Entertainment officially announces the December 2012 release of the complete, English-language localized version of Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks.

Completing the series of amazing artbooks that began with the UDON releases of Valkyria Chronicles: Design Archive and Valkyria Chronicles 2: World Artworks, this third entry in the series also features a wealth of amazing illustrations by lead character designer and famed illustrator Raita Honjō! Chock-full of character designs and profiles, vehicle and weapon designs, promotional art, and tons of creator commentary and long-form interviews, this is one spectacular collection!

Perhaps most importantly to hardcore Valkyria Chronicles game fans, Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks features a thorough story summary of the game, which is unreleased in English. Valkyria Chronicles 3 is a side-story to the first game in the series, making it a unique entry but also allowing cameos and crossover appearances by characters from the first two games, including Welkin Gunther, Alica Melchiott, Avan Hardins, and more! While there are no plans (that UDON knows of) to localise the game for English-speaking and reading fans, Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks a great way to experience and enjoy the vast story of the game!

“The Valkyria Chronicles artbooks have been blockbusters for UDON,” said Udon Entertainment Marketing Director Chris Butcher. “The Books are gorgeous and incredibly thorough, mixing illustration art with technical military-style drawings, and a complex story. I'm so happy we could work with our licensing partners to bring out the third volume. This one is definitely for the fans!”

Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks will arrive in comic book stores and wherever books are sold in December, 2012.

The Valkyria Chronicles series is a critically acclaimed tactical RPG video game for the Sony PlayStation® PS3™ and PSP®, with a very dedicated fan base, and has sold over 1.7 million copies worldwide.
Valkyria Chronicles 3 was released exclusively in Japan, and so, the info in this art book finally gives North American fans a chance to enjoy the continuation of the story.
Valkyria 3 takes place as a side story to the first game, so there are cameos from many popular characters of the first two games (including Welkin Gunther, Alica Melchiott, Avan Hardins, and more).
