Udon releases Atelier Series: Official Chronicle art book

Udon releases a beautiful collection of art from the Atelier RPG franchise

Gaming fans, especially those loving Japanese style role-playing games, know the Atelier series of games. This franchise keeps the graphics old-school in nature with tons of traditional RPG action from dungeon crawling to weapons and accessory management. The gaming aspects are the very definition of what a J-RPG is and the art style is worthy of a wall scroll, anime series, manga and yes, art book. The Atelier Series: Official Chronicle from Udon is one such art book collection and is available now. The art is truly beautiful and captures the essence of many of the aspects that make an RPG a true J-RPG in look. The characters, classes and settings fit into the fantasy realm and are great to look at even without knowledge of the games. A great RPG starts with great character development be it out of the box characters or those designed by the gamer in MMO’s such as World of Warcraft. Fans of the alchemy based RPG series will love to add this to their bookshelf but even non-fans should take a look, its simple stunning to view.

  • Atelier Marie: The Alchemist of Salburg 
  • Atelier Ellie: The Alchemist of Salburg 2
