The latest book from Bitmap Books was released on Friday.

A guide to Japanese RPGs.


I've been waiting for this one since it was first announced, so ordered my copy a soon as it was available. Really looking forward to its arrival this week. But as with all their other books I already have the PDF version as soon as I ordered, so have already had a quick look though. Really interesting because it's exploring the actual Japanese RPG genre, not just JRPGs released in the west.

If you are interested I highly recommend you buy it this week because they don't stay in stock long. I was tempted by the Collectors Edition, because its a one off 2000 copy print run, but for the extra 20 it wasn't really worth it to me for what you get extra. But I was nearly tempted just because of its limited run and a nicer cover.
