If you happen to fancy hundreds of pages of high-quality artwork, boy does Udon Entertainment have your back. In an announcement at Comic Con International’s official Udon 2014 panel over the weekend, the company revealed it would be licensing a whole slew of art books from various mediums.

There’s a blend of both video game and anime/manga art books, although the games definitely win out in terms of sheer numeracy. Given the website you’re currently browsing, though, we suspect that won’t be an issue.

In terms of anime/manga art, the following were detailed:
A series of Robotech/Macross art books
Osamu Tezuka Anime Character Sketchbook
Osamu Tezuka: Osamu Tezuka Character Illustrations
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Art

The video game spectrum includes:
The Art of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies
Border Break Artworks
Gungnir Official Art Chronicle
Professor Layton Official Fanbook
Record of Agarest War: Heroines Visual Book
Record of Agarest War 2: Heroines Visual Book
Shining Blade & Ark

Though most of the above titles have decidedly tentative dates at this juncture, the Yu-Gi-Oh! and Phoenix Wright art books, at least, have been confirmed for 2015.

In case art books aren’t your cup of tea or you simply want a good read, Udon will also be publishing the manga adaptation of Kill la Kill. The plot has largely followed in the footsteps of its animated predecessor thus far, but some notable scene differences may well make this a warranted purchase from seasoned fans as well as those who missed out on the original. It, too, is slated for 2015.
