Thread: Art Books?

    Default Art Books?

    I recently came across this picture, but no one seems to have any idea where it's from, if it is a pre order bonus, a separate item you buy, or what. Anyone have any clues?

    Whoa, No Idea what that is but I want it. I love Art books for Movies and Video Games. Awesome to see the creative process. Hopefully this is the preorder gift or something.

    Maybe promotional merchandise from the mall tour?

    That's my theory.

    Woah... I haven't seen those before, but if I see them in England, I'm jumping on 'em. I love art books for videogame and manga/anime series, especially Pokemon and Final Fantasy. I don't think they'll be too cheap, though, and I highly doubt they'll give something like this away as a preorder bonus or promo item... D: It's more collectible and valuable than that, surely. I've never seen an artbook come cheap.

    It maybe the concept art for the new Pokémon. I mean, for example, in a Musharna concept art, we can see that Musharna has red eyes. Still, looks like something that's worthy of collecting.

    Thanks for reading.

    According to a thread on GameFAQs, it's part of the shipment that some Target stores have received.

    No confirmation on that, or anything else besides pictures of a shipment box full of the actual games.

    Oooh, oooh! That would be so awesome! I mean, more Gobitto and Goruugu art would make me really happy.

    If it really has been shipped to some Target stores, I may have to go hunting when B&W are released. Whatever this is, it looks awesome and I want it. :)

    This is a bonus that will be given to those whom get Black and/or White at Target on Day 1. Not a preorder bonus, and seemingly Target-only. Don't let your hopes down, though; Target once had the Pokemon Ranger game soundtrack exclusive.

    Well I hope they sell it elsewhere, because I'd actually buy that.

    Looks like I'm not buying at Gamestop anymore. I was gonna go there Sunday and pick up the game and download the Celebi, but an artbook is a much better deal. Maybe I can stop by Gamestop on Friday or something.

    Does anyone know what time Target opens on Sunday morning?

    Anyone who gets it, can you tell us if there's any interesting content in there?

    Damn...now I wish I was buying B&W at Target. I pre-ordered from Toys r us so I could get the wall clings. Weirdly enough, there's a Target opening in my town on March 6th, lol. I wonder if my Target would have these, and if so, I hope I could buy it separately from the games.

    I'll try to post pictures if I'm able to get one. In the past, though, not many stores I've visited to buy games have kept their word regarding pre-orders--and this isn't even a pre-order. :/

    Exciting news for those who want this!

    Target isn't the only one. Wal-Mart stores are also getting shipments.

    The folio goes for retail at $7.99, so will most likely be sold separately.

    The contents of the art book are Ken Sugimori artwork and Game Freak concept art.

    That's all ATM.
