Valkyria Chronicles 2: World Artworks

UDON Entertainment’s translation of Valkyria Chronicles: World Artworks was a hit with fans, after being one of our most-requested art book translations. In 2012 we followed it up with the next book in the series, and brought 300+ more pages of beautiful character designs, detailed vehicle and weapon designs, storyboards, maps, and production art from the world of Valkyria Chronicles to English-language fans of the series–Valkyria Chronicles 2: World Artworks.

Set two years after the onset of the Second Europan War, Valkyria Chronicles 2 focuses on a military academy cadet school as they seek to prevent an ethnic cleansing campaign by a ruthless rebel group. Valkyria Chronicles 2: World Artworks opens up this complex world with a fantastic mix of character pin-ups, city maps, equipment specifications, costume designs and more. All of the original Japanese text has been carefully translated into English, to capture the nuances of world design and character stories.

Errata:
Please note: on page 302, the entry for “Jarde and his Happy Time Friends” should read:

The name Raymond suggested for Class G’s soccer team. In fact, Raymond had already submitted the registration form for the soccer tournament by the time the others got around to suggesting names, so this became the official team name.
