Apparently the guys over at Starmen.net did not think it was enough to just releasing a translation patch. They went ahead and teamed up with Fangamer to compile a complete companion book/players guide for the game as well. With complete coverage of everything in the game, and they even went so far as to make clay models for some characters and enemies just like in the original Earthbound guide.
As of right now they are taking pre-orders for the hardcover book at 20 dollars a pop. If your a fan of the series, this looks like a solid investment. Hit the jump to take a peek at some of the pages.
