Amazon.co.jp put up some more information about a design document book for Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (FE9) (蒼炎の軌跡). It will release July 29th for the price of 3,456 Yen (~33 USD). Import costs usually add another ~10 USD.
Also the title has changed slightly, now:
“Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance Design Documents. Tellius Recollection (1)”
I may refer to it as “Tellius Recollecton” from now on, but we’ll see. (1) likely means that Radiant Dawn will be (2).
There is no cover art yet, but there is a new description!
Read the description (translated by me) below!:
A compilation of official documents from developer Intelligent Systems. For the first time, official documents revealing three aspects of character designs will be revealed, such as their background in this world, and rough sketches of their original illustrations. In addition to that, this book features info on the full story, setting, every support conversation, a directory of character names (even enemy commanders), and much more. Everything you need to know about Path of Radiance wrapped up in one package. Senri Kita, the illustrator who drew all of the character artwork , makes a special return to draw the cover for this book, too!
