1. It includes the story pages/chapters. This was missing in the 2nd book and I believe added great value to the collection.
2. More art and less in-game 3d renders. Example: Secondary characters are drawn out instead of a 3d game model like in the first book.
3. It's in English. Sad reason to like the book, but it is even more sad that I don't know Japanese to play the game. I now collect Valkyria Chronicle books because I enjoy their art style. I wish the game would be ported over to NA.
4. Attention to detail. The organization and layout of this book are great! The coloring is bright, page layouts, and even fonts make the book feel perfect.
The ToC is:
1. Illustrations (lots of them)
2. Characters (104 pages worth)
3. Military Affairs and Natural History (uniforms, weapons, vehicles, etc)
4. Story (The in game chapters; followed by locations and other odds and ends)
5. Process (Event art, cinematic art, storyboards, illustration drafts, and more)
6. Interviews with the Dev Team.
If you loved the first book, you will definitely love this one.
Valkyria Chronicles 3, to this date, was not localized yet, but this artbook is, and if you don't know Japanese, now you can at least read about the game and understand what's happening story-wise.
of art books for the Valkyria Chronicles. Its has characters and vehicles and weapons, but
for some reason, maybe the fact that its the 3rd book but it felt like they were struggling for more
material to make a book. Trust me though its a huge book and well worth the price. I own
all 3 of them but again this one is the weakest. I still reach for book 1 or 2 before this one.
