Not really a great image, but interesting to see format layout.

Good news for people who don't land a Limited Edition I guess...

You'll probably find a download of it for free within a day.

(with my pre-order) I guess I should have specified that part. I'm pretty positive every big game has had an actual guidebook you can go and buy. Thanks for showing me they really do exist.

I have the Japanese guide (and am fluent in Japanese) and it's just complete garbage. No stats of any sort, very conspicuously missing sections and bosses, unreadable and incorrect maps, no marking the location of most items, etc etc etc.
It looks like they went with the same strategy they used for the Demon's Souls CE guides; they wanted a walkthrough, and not an actual strategy guide with real, useful data. The Japanese Demon's Souls guide was FANTASTIC, contained absolutely 100% of what you could want to have, and was also gorgeous. I don't get why the guide for DkS is so crappy.

Again, this is from the Future Press guide, the hard-bound one due out 10/4.
