« on: August 09, 2018, 03:30:06 AM »


It's #27 on that list. It is a 48 page book, B5 size, full color, with an assortment of artwork from their STGs. It is called "Cave STG Collected Illustrations - Another Level". 3,000 yen.
You will be able to buy it at the Comic Market tomorrow in Tokyo. Source: https://twitter.com/cave_shooters/status/1027436312133955584

Would you have any idea of how I could get a hold of this? I live in the UK.  I don't suppose there are any UK outlets where I could buy this book?

If anyone can pick up a few of them I'd like to buy one too. At that price they would probably fly off the shelf.

I'm not paying one of these scalper website ripoff scumbags double/triple though.

Here's a pic of the cover (it's the one on the left):



Cave says the triple set (with this and the two soundtracks) is sold out, but they still have a small amount of the book alone available for sale. Should sell out within the day. Expect at least one on YAJ within 24 hours!

Mine arrived today. It's a thin paperback. Some of the art is pretty nice, others, not so much. A lot of it is erotic. The sole MMP artwork is sorta creepy.  :displeased: I like the Pink Sweets one though (just Lace & Teresa). In the back there is also a collection of special arcade artwork that was made for Gesen Yokocho. Most of it I had never seen before.

A few quick pics from my ipad:

Happy jackin', pardner!

It does look like a handsome addition to any bookshelf.
