@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:55 PM) tho personally I guess I'm not too afraid of responding to old messages anyway sometimes, haha
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) to have discussions where people respond at their own convenience
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) forums could still be used but we'd have to make a bit of an effort I guess
@  Fire Blazer : (12 January 2019 - 08:54 PM) I agree with Mage Girl/Cero/Elwood/Kirant lolol
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:15 AM) And yeah missing stuff on discord is easy depending on when most people are online
@  xcrash1998 : (12 January 2019 - 10:11 AM) I think there are just fewer people interested in taking part on forums since most information is already accesible trough the many means.
@  Mercurius : (09 January 2019 - 02:46 AM) Well, at the same time I also don't frequent most of the discord channels I'm a part of, though.

That's right, what I think is an English version of the "Knights of Iris" artbook is coming out in English (and at what should be a much more reasonable price than importing it).

 

Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1616559381 

 

See https://twitter.com/...766977775333376for a tweet with other retailers (sorry I'm kinda lazy)

 

My suggestion is that if you're interested, pre-order it now. You don't have to pay for it until it comes out, so you have time, but at least that way you've reserved yours.

 

Personally as an FE fan/collector even though I'm not a big fan of Awakening I will still be picking this up. If it were an FE6-FE9 book I'd pick it up without hesitation, but for this... well, hey, the artist is still good. And it's Fire Emblem. And it's in English and I don't have the original, so why not? =P

 

Any of ya'll going to pick it up? :o

One of these days it will get to a point where I absolutely cannot do anything without an amazon account, and THEN I will finally get one...and a pay pal to go with it.

 

Wait...B&N? *checks* Hm...40 dollars... Ehhh. I'm kind of like you, Blazer. If it had been FE6-9, I would have jumped on it instantly. IMO those games had the prettiest art. Awakening's artist just...doesn't appeal to me in the way the former ones did. Both the in-game art and the OA.

 

It's nice that we're finally getting it, but I bet all those people who imported the Jap one are feeling veeeeeeery upset right now.

Haha, you really don't have one? I guess that's just a difference in lifestyles though. For me, I use Amazon quite a bit to order all sorts of things when I need it (games, books, tools, creams, shaving heads, other stuff, lol), so I even have Amazon Prime and FEEL like I use it enough for it to be worth it.

 

Yeah I gotcha. I still think the artist is good, but it lacks some of that charm/appeal the older ones had, for me.

 

and yeah, I got multiple people on my Twitter saying things that essentially boiled down to being upset about just buying it/spending a lot of money on it, haha. It's a shame partially because it took so long but eh, I mean, for something that isn't coming out until like... August, I think, they did give a fair notice to people. So hopefully at least some section of people will forgo the Japanese version now that there's an English version. For everyone else, I guess they either have to live with it/be happy they got it earlier than some people, or spend more money getting the English version or something, lol.

Well, to be honest, my mom handled all the online store accounts like ebay and amazon. She handled the paypal too. She passed away last year, taking all her accounts with her. I just haven't set up any accounts, and I'm a bit wary of setting up paypal so that it directly accesses my bank account. I heard it's safer to just open a new bank account just for paypal, but... Too much effort required for that.

 

Yeah I gotcha. I still think the artist is good, but it lacks some of that charm/appeal the older ones had, for me.

Definitely. It really said something when I was scrolling through the DLC characters for FEA and singled out Leif because he was drawn by the same artist that did Sacred Stones, lol.

 

When I actually look at what the book has, I guess that 40$ price tag isn't as bad as I first thought.

This will be a 320 page book, filled to the brim with artwork related to character design, weapon design, storyboards, event illustrations and the game’s complete script for all possible dialogue and scenes.

 

That's actually quite a decent amount of content. Still not enough to make me want to buy it, though--that's almost the price of an actual game.

ahh, I see... I'm very sorry to hear that. I personally just use one bank account for everything, but I can see why it could be troublesome, so I don't blame you.

 

ahahaha, yeah that does say something I think. but yeah it's not a terrible deal at all, assuming most of the art is quality and whatnot. I think I really only value it at around $20, but I work enough jobs that I'm willing to put out a bit extra for FE-related stuff, haha.

That's what I value most books at. To pay much more than that feels like I'm being cheated. lol

I already have the original Japanese release, but I guess I can pick this up too.

 

My only gripe is that an English release should have happened sooner, but eh,...

though like Lucia said:

it's actually gone on sale! it was $40 but for whatever reason pre-orders went to $24 on Amazon

 

I already have the original Japanese release, but I guess I can pick this up too.

 

My only gripe is that an English release should have happened sooner, but eh,...

 

ooh, way to support heh

 

yeah it sure did take a while, I have to wonder if they had wanted to do this for a while and it just didn't pan out, or if they just took super long to get an English version started and stuff, lol

. but hey, if you're not that interested, then that's that, haha

Considering this supposedly has the entire game's script for EVERY variation of EVERY cutscene, I am inclined to believe they just didn't feel like dealing with that aspect of it. Maybe.

 

Then again, the entire game's script is readily available in English. It's not like they would have to translate all the text in the book.

ohhh really? didn't know that. but hmm. I see. yeah, maybe it just took a ton of time to work with Nintendo and prepare it, and perhaps persuade them to do it in the first place (e.g. show evidence that there's a market for it and people will buy it and the like)

According to serenes, anyway:

You  make a point. Having to work with the dudes who wrote the script might be a problem. Unless they wanted to do it the fan way and manually play the game like a million times or so. lol (since I think the text in the final chapter, when you let Chrom defeat Grima, changes with every possible husband/wife choice.)
