Includes all the information of how characters came to be through the minds of the creators themselves!

Chalk full of colorful official art, I couldn't put it down, and had to read all the developer comments on the irregular hunters and irregulars.

I've been a Mega Man fan since the Nintendo days, but I became a HUGE Mega Man fan once I played Mega Man X on the SNES!

Mega Man X: Official Complete Works is actually a half of the 336-page Japanese art book "R20" which was published in March 2008 to celebrate Mega Man's 20th anniversary. It's nice to have Capcom translate the book into English. The other half is Mega Man: Official Complete Works

This book retains the paperback format, low gloss pages and layout. The cover has a glossy embossed Mega Man X printed against a matte cover. It's very beautiful and X pops out nicely. This book has 144 pages compared to the Mega Man volume which has 200 pages.

There are both good and bad in releasing the original book as two volumes in English. The bad, of course, is the higher price. The good is the it's thinner and more friendly to the book spine. By comparison, my 320-page "SF20: The Art of Street Fighter", also from Capcom, has slight creases when I open the book wide.

The art inside is arranged by chronological order. The book is filled with colourful character designs, sketches and illustrations from game covers, manga and other merchandise. The variety is amazing. The pages are packed with so many versions of powered up Mega Man X, the bosses and enemies.

The designs are beautiful and detailed. I've never actually played Mega Man X before so this book isn't as nostalgic as the other volume, but whatever you can think of is probably found in this book.

Accompanying the designs are lots of quotes from the Japanese artists. They talk about the characters, ideas, and you can gain some interesting insight into their working environment.

Format: Paperback
This book is not rare nor should cost this much, this entire book is being flaunted as a rarity, these sellers should be ashamed.

Don't believe me? I went out and bought it at this week for $45 along with the classic collection for $26.

Here's proof of the fake rarity these sellers are using but its all false.
Link was removed, but google "SOLD OUT: Art of Darksiders, Mega Man X: OCW, Monster Hunter Illustrations" and see the truth yourself.

The company is reprinting more, and they even admit surprise to such high prices, Do yourself a favor and wait. The Shops selling this as a rarity will soon sob in realizing their secret is out and prices will fall to normal levels. So just go out away from big company names selling books, and go to comic, anime, or other stores and buy it at a normal $45 dollars.

The book itself is actually quite good from designs and history with good info, love the book hate the price hikers.

This thing is chock full of information, art, and commentary. It's really cool! There's a lot of blurbage from Inafune and you can see and feel how much love he put into the X series (until 6, hah). Any Megaman X fan is sure to love and enjoy this. It packs so much into a 144 pager! I highly recommend getting it with Mega Man: Official Complete Works, as originally they were part of the same book, like other reviewers have said.

In simple terms: the book covers extensively all the designs of the major reploids and mavericks made with short comments of the illustrators, so it's a nice source for official illustrations and not depending on poor quality scans that are scattered over the web.
However, if you are more into the backstory and concept of the videogames, or details such as the original names of the characters in japanese, this may not be the book for you. It's a fast reading, more visual oriented source of material. For anyone who has always enjoyed the artwork for the X series, this should be a must buy.

I've been a Mega Man fan since the Nintendo days, but I became a HUGE Mega Man fan once I played Mega Man X on the SNES! This book gives lots of info on the series direct from it's creators! It's full of cool facts, amazing art both concept and final artworks used in the game, and pretty much everything else you could ask for involving the 'X' series! I love it!

This book MUST be in the collection of any Mega Man fan (X series or even of the original series), so buy it for yourself or knock a friend or family member whose a fan of the games off their feet with it as a gift!

This book was very hard to find, but it was so worth the search! The artwork from one of my absolute favorite videogame series made the games that much more enjoyable. This collection covers all titles in the Megaman X series, (X-9, the Megaman X-treme titles, as well as Command Mission) as of September of 2009. I heavily recomend this title to any fan of the Megaman X series, it is very visually pleasing and introduces many of the inner thoughts of the designers, a very interesting perspective on these games to be sure.

Includes all the information of how characters came to be through the minds of the creators themselves! Also The Art Work Is Beyond Fantastic! Great For Those Who Like To Draw And Sketch. I would Recommend Buying This From Amazon, The Price Is Unbeatable! Plus I got Free Shipping, which makes this literally half off of what I would have paid at Barnes And Nobles Or Any Other Book Retail Store. All Around A Great Buy For Any Mega Man X Fan!
