Dark Horse have announced they will be publishing the Super Mario Odyssey art book in the west.
The 368-page hardcover art book features concept art, ideas that never ended up in the final game, and doodles during development (including a form of Bowsette before Bowsette was made by the internet).
The art book has been out in Japan for a while, but this is the first time it will be coming to the west. Dark Horse have also handled the publishing of two versions of the Super Mario Encyclopedia.
The book will retail at $49.99, and will be available from October 22nd at retailers such as Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and TFAW. You can find the cover below:
