Udon to Bring Two "The Legend of Heroes" Art Books to North America

Pair of books cover Nihon Falcom's RPG series this November

UDON Entertainment plans on celebrating Nihon Falcom's long-running The Legend of Heroes RPG series with the release of two king-sized art books. The Legend of Heroes: The Illustrations and The Legend of Heroes: The Characters both come in at 272 pages, and will be available in North America this November.

 

Here's the lowdown from UDON's page

The Legend of Heroes: The Illustrations weighs in at more than 272 pages, and is comprised entirely of gorgeous, fully-rendered artwork created for the games, including pin-ups, story artwork, advertising art, and much more. The Legend of Heroes: The Characters is also 272 pages, and is a character-designers dream come true! It’s full to the brim with character designs, costumes, facial expressions, rough concepts, and tons more! Both books have been completely translated into English, and the artwork contained within covers the games Trails of Blue, Trails of Zero, and the Trails in the Sky trilogy, as well as the “Trails” artworks from the spin-off game “Ys vs. Trails in the Sky: Alternative Saga.”

It's pretty cool to see these coming out despite the fact that The Legend of Heroes doesn't get a lot of exposure in the west.
