This is the art book for the Mega Man Star Force franchise, the series of games made for the Nintendo DS.

It's translated by Udon from the original Japanese art book 流星のロックマン オフィシャルコンプリートワークス (Shooting Star Rockman Official Complete Works).

The book's a 176 page paperback with a nice cover with a background that changes colours from different angle. It's a nice idea that translate into a glowing Mega Man with parts that also glow.

The book features art from all the series, three, one and two in that order.

The art is great and every page is packed. It's mainly a character design book so there are many characters to see, as well as their different transformation, boss designs, enemy designs and other promotional art. I always enjoy looking at the cute enemy robot designs for the Mega Man series. For background designs, only the more important buildings are featured.

There's plenty of commentary and even a step-by-step walkthrough on creating a rather complicated poster.

It's a wonderful visual companion for the games. Highly recommended for Mega Man fans.
