Square Enix has recently put a lot of energy into reviving its oft overlooked Seiken Densetsu franchise recently, especially in Western markets. The original game was released outside Japan as Final Fantasy Adventure for Game Boy, and the second was SNES classic Secret of Mana. However, at this year’s E3, the publisher did a surprise release of the Collection of Mana for Nintendo Switch which included not just the first two games, but also the first official North American release of the third, now titled Trials of Mana. Furthermore, it was also revealed that the elusive game would be getting a 3D, HD remake as well.

Given this renewed interest in the franchise, it looks like Square Enix is planning another treat for fans alongside publisher Dark Horse. The companies are teaming up to release The Art of Mana book featuring artwork from the series. The book will feature more than 400 pieces of art across over 200 pages alongside additional information about the world, characters, and creative process that birthed them.

The book is scheduled for release February 11 of next year and is already available for preorder via Amazon for $39.99.
