Fire Emblem Awakening Getting a New Collector’s Book

Fire Emblem Fates is upon us, but that doesn’t stop Awakening from riding its popularity and success train just a little bit further. Lucina makes herself present on another cover as Dark Horse, the publishing company behind Hyrule Historia, is releasing The Art of Fire Emblem: Awakening.


This will be a 320 page book, filled to the brim with artwork related to character design, weapon design, storyboards, event illustrations and the game’s complete script for all possible dialogue and scenes.

This book will also be published in English, meaning that while those not proficient with Japanese may have had to pass on the Japanese version of this one, those same readers will be facing incredible temptation to pick this one up.


The Art of Fire Emblem: Awakening will be available in comic shops on August 17, 2016, and in bookstores on August 30, 2016. Oddly enough, Amazon lists this as being released on July 26, 2016.

Preorders are available now through your local comic shop (not confirmed in all comic shops),, and soon,, for $39.99.

    Wow! I got the Japanese book because I thought they’d never bother releasing an English version… well, now I’ll have both! XD (Still, I really need to just learn Japanese…)

    Meh, I’ll wait for Amazon to drop the price to around the $20 range. Wasn’t very fond of the art designs in this game, but I haven’t bought an FE art book since the Akaneia Memorial in 2010 so this is probably a decent opportunity if its cheap enough.

    For Canadians interested, the preorders have also gone up on and Chapters/Indigo 🙂

    Just a heads up: Amazon has dropped its preorder price to $24 for the time being.
