If you're a fan of the Nioh games and like artbooks, this companion artbook for the game is pretty much a must-buy. This is a large format 304-page hardcover published by Udon Entertainment. The book collects the concept art for the two games. There are designs for characters, environment and enemies. There's a good mix of hand drawn art and polished high res renders. Designs for the characters and the guardian spirits look awesome. There aren't dedicated pages for the props and weapons. There's plenty to read too, such as profiles for the characters, commentary on the locations, design not ..read more
