The wait is over! Ever since UDON’s December release of the fan-favourite Shigenori Soejima Artworks, fans have been clamouring for more art, more character designs, and more commentary by legendary character designer Shigenori Soejima! Well wait no longer, as UDON is proud to bring you Persona 3: Official Design Works, a 144-page art and design compendium from the smash hit video game, available on the PlayStation 2, PSP, and digitally on the PlayStation Network!Persona 3: Official Design Works is more than just a collection of amazing art and designs—although there’s certainly enough of it in there! Featuring rough sketches, final production artwork, early game designs, CG works, storyboards, character designs, backgrounds, and even more, this is a fantastic behind-the-scenes look at Persona 3 for art and game fans alike… but it doesn’t stop there!

Soejima-sensei has added additional commentary to more than half of the book, digging into his creative process, his feelings on his work, and even his feelings on the characters themselves! All of Soejima-sensei’s comments have been faithfully translated by UDON’s production team—including a huge 8,000-word interview—leading to a book that you’ll read again, and again, and again!

Speaking of UDON’s production team, we’ve gone all out to ensure that this is one of our nicest-looking art books ever! In addition to our ‘regular’ large book size and top-quality printing, Persona 3: Official Design Works also features additional silver ink accenting on every page! We’ve also chosen a special pearlescent paper and foil stamping for the cover, and utilized a special printing process to make the whole image pop! Artwork this good needs a package to match, and no fan of Persona or Soejima-sensei will want to be without this amazing book on their bookshelf!

Key Features:
– Hundreds of sketches, roughs, storyboards, and more, not included in Shigenori Soejima Artworks!
– An amazingly stylish collection, with reflective silver ink printed on every page!
– The secrets of Persona 3 revealed in a huge interview with Producer & Director Katsura Hashino, and Character Designer & Art Director Shigenori Soejima!
