Masamune Shirow’s Art for Fire Emblem, RF Online and More Featured in New Artbook by Dark Horse
The massively popular mangaka and illustrator behind The Ghost in the Shell Masamune Shirow has worked on quite a few games during his career, and the upcoming artbook Intron Depot 5 Battalion to be published by Dark Horse will feature some of that work.
Between the most well known games included in the book there are Fire Emblem‘s remake Shadow Dragon for the Nintendo Ds, and the PC MMORPG RF Online, but there are quite a few lesser known titles as well.
Below you can see the cover and a few sample pages from the book, that will be released in the US on March 12th for $44.99. Having already seen the whole thing I can tell you that if you’re a hardcore Fire Emblem fan, this is definitely worth your attention. Seeing Marth and Caeda drawn with Shirow’s masterful hand really hits the spot.
