The organization and layout of this book are great!
C. Miller
It goes into the design details game but it is a book primarily for the art direction of the game.

For those of us who love the Valkyria Chronicles series, this book is an absolute must-have.

Format: Paperback
Length: 1:13 Mins
Valkyria Chronicles 3: Complete Artworks continues in the same style as Valkyria Chronicles Design Archive and Valkyria Chronicles 2: World Artworks, the two earlier art books.

It's translated by Udon from the Japanese edition that was published in 2011. There are 256 pages in this paperback.

It's basically the concept art book and visual guide for the game. There are illustrations for characters, weapons, vehicles, scenes, storyboards, a bit of environment art and other promotional materials.

Character designs still form the main bulk of the book. There are sketches and many variations to look at. Some characters are from the previous games. For a military establishment, the military uniforms are as non-standardised as they can get. Even so, with a common art direction, you still see that they are from the same army.

What might interest fans would be the extensive commentary provided by the design notes, character profiles and story summaries.

It seems that the game wasn't released in English. If don't know Japanese and can't play the PSP game but still want to follow the series, then this art book will be great for you.

(There are more pictures of the book on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)

Now owning all 3 books, I have to say this book is laid out beautifully. And while I am not going to go into a full detailed review, there are a few things I would like to point out as to why I like this book.
1. It includes the story pages/chapters. This was missing in the 2nd book and I believe added great value to the collection.
2. More art and less in-game 3d renders. Example: Secondary characters are drawn out instead of a 3d game model like in the first book.
3. It's in English. Sad reason to like the book, but it is even more sad that I don't know Japanese to play the game. I now collect Valkyria Chronicle books because I enjoy their art style. I wish the game would be ported over to NA.
4. Attention to detail. The organization and layout of this book are great! The coloring is bright, page layouts, and even fonts make the book feel perfect.

The ToC is:
1. Illustrations (lots of them)
2. Characters (104 pages worth)
3. Military Affairs and Natural History (uniforms, weapons, vehicles, etc)
4. Story (The in game chapters; followed by locations and other odds and ends)
5. Process (Event art, cinematic art, storyboards, illustration drafts, and more)
6. Interviews with the Dev Team.

If you loved the first book, you will definitely love this one.

Likeways the book it self is really out of sight like the 2 books before it .

it is really great to at least get to understand the characters that represent the game this time around

GOD i want to get into Imca SO BAD , but as i read the book wich is outstanding but i feel that there is something missing , i havent played this game so i didnt get into the emotions of them like i felt for selvaria , Rosie , cossete and many others

such a shame this is SEGA's best game franichase besides sakura wars & Skies Of Arcadia.

with all great games that came out of japan the last 2 years till PxZ its SAD this is not out yet

if your crazy on VC the book is woth it, but if you haven't played the game you might feel that your still kinda missing out on the game that you can't wait to get your hands on it .

For us who were left out of the joy of playing the game in the west, this book delivers everything you ever wanted to know about the Nameless and their story in the shadows of the Gallian-Empire war. Every character is explained in detail and even some preliminary sketches for previous versions of the characters appear.
Tons of material on weapons and vehicles, as well as uniforms (those Calamity Raven look awesome).
Overall, a true delight for any Valkyria Chronicles fan.

For those who enjoy the design process in movies, tv, and games this is for you. Loads of details, notes from creators and artist. Sketches, detailed plans for the equipment and work around Valkyria. A definite buy.

This book is a spoiler as a heads up as the game has not been translated nor are there any plans for localization as of this review. This book is exactly as the previous two books were. There is a overview of the characters and their story and development and design details. It goes into the design details game but it is a book primarily for the art direction of the game.

Ok with this book its more of the same, but I feel that this is easily the weakest book in the series
of art books for the Valkyria Chronicles. Its has characters and vehicles and weapons, but
for some reason, maybe the fact that its the 3rd book but it felt like they were struggling for more
material to make a book. Trust me though its a huge book and well worth the price. I own
all 3 of them but again this one is the weakest. I still reach for book 1 or 2 before this one.
