Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Receives an Official Artbook in February
Unfortunately, this appears to be Japanese-only for now.

The Xenoblade Chronicles 2 love keeps on coming, and I am in no way opposed to that! An official artbook, titled Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks: Alrest Record, was announced by Famitsu. The book will cover material from both the original game and artwork from the DLC expansion, Torna The Golden Country.


A variety of artists had their hand in the making of Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and each one will get their time in the spotlight throughout the book's 352 pages. The game's main character designer, Masatsugu Saito, not only will have his art featured but he also designed the book's cover. For Xenoblade Chronicles 2's plethora of Blades, the artbook features each one as they went through the design process along with commentary from their respective guest artist. Other artwork included in the book will include monster designs, weapons, and Titans.

As a bonus, the artbook will also include every single post-battle and Heart-to-Heart dialogue in the game. Granted, this text will be in Japanese only.

People in Japan and importers won't have long to wait for this artbook: Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks: Alrest Record releases in Japan on February 2nd.
