    That’s about twice the pages than the artbooks for 3 and 4. Pretty good, I might even get it if there’s a European release.

    This one is listed as 432 pages while the Japanese version is 512 pages. I wonder why

    I wish more companies did this.

    I hate having to buy the over-priced CE just to get the artbook I want.

    I can tell you after holding my own copy of that artbook that the whole thing is much smaller. Nowhere near over 400 pages.

    much like the little or bigger books that came with certain bundles of p3 or p4, the p5 one we got in the tyh edition is more like an abridged version. Limited concept art, some illustrations of enemies or bosses, a little commentary, and that’s about it. Good, but abridged.
