A bit late, but the Dark Souls design works has been out for a few months now in Japan.

I received  my copy today - it's hardcover, 125 pages, with about 120 of them being art.  It's relatively inexpensive for an import (I was able to get it for $30 + $10 shipping), so if you enjoy the game, it's probably worth it. Much, much better than the crap artbook found with the (North American) LE.

Isn't someone localizing it?

Not that I'm aware of.  At least - not yet.  I'd say there's probably a good chance of localization, given the popularity of the game.  Really, though, there's no need for it because there's so little text (a few names of weapons and armor here and there, NPC names).  All that really needs translating are the 4 pages of interview.

There's a lot less text than the average artbook.

How I got through Dark Souls

Iron Flesh is fucked and I think pyromancy was nerfed, so that's kind of fucked as advice now.

Some people has been saying that the left arm of Artorias is broken, or paralyzed.



Hmm.

I love that this is getting DLC. I hope the PC version is optimized well, because I don't have my PS3 Copy anymore

Locked at 30FPS, 720p resolution. On the other hand, looks like Blight Town is fixed. So even if it isn't perfect, still looks like the definitive version. Plus, PC modders will patch out the 30fps limit and possibly even iron out resolution issues.
