    So it was released in Japan a while ago, I am actually thinking of buying it. However! Before I do I gotta ask you guys, do you think the artbook will ever get translated and released in NA? Or not?

    I'd say it depends on how well P5 is recieved and how enthusiastic the fandom will sound as well as how the SMTIV artbook sold.
    I really want it to be localized as well as the artbook for Apocalypse (unless that has been done and I just missed it?), the commentary on the SMTIV book was interesting and being able to look at some of the ultimate Personas in detail would be nice

    Seems like a lot of the artbooks do get localised eventually, and P5 is a bigger game, so I'd be surprised if it didn't come over at some point. Although Udon can be pretty slow, feels like they haven't even mentioned the PQ one they're supposed to be bringing over in ages.

    I think mainline SMT and Persona games artbooks will be localized. It might take a bit, but I'm positive the P5 artbook will come eventually.

    I have no regrets for getting the Japanese version, it has more pages than the English one.

    I'm curious as to why that is, only thing known to be 'missing' is the opening animation storyboard. Unless they cut the stuff from the Take Your Heart Edition's book and then a crap tonne of text they didn't 'need' I personally can't think of what could be missing or why (maybe the opening anime is excluded because of rights issues with the studio?)

    Still no question that I'll be buying it

    There is supposed to be "additional information" on the characters in the artbook. Does anyone know about any of that?

    JP artbook has bio stuff like height/weight ect. as well as creator comments. Additional Information is probably referring to that.
