Video games offer large, detailed worlds that you can really get lost in, and sometimes there is more to a world to learn than you can easily get from just playing the game. This is part of the reason books of video game art and collections are so popular – they delve deeper into a game’s lore and history while showing the art and sketches that brought a gaming world to life. If you like to collect art books, guide books and other books on the game, Amazon’s latest sale has an absolute treasure trove of offers to discover.
The new Amazon sale offers big discounts on dozens of video game art books, songbooks, cookbooks, novelties, and more. But in addition to these individual discounts, there is a multi-buy offer that reduces one of your items by 50% when you add two to your cart. As usual, it will be the cheapest item that gets the discount, so keep that in mind. This also offers batteries – if you buy four things, the two cheapest items will be 50% off. With these bundle deals, you can get all the game books you’ve been looking for cheaply today, so it’s absolutely worth browsing through all the deals.
Sale highlights include Dark Horse’s entire line of video game art books, giving you a deeper insight into art concepts, sketches, and more from games like Cuphead, Ghost of Tsushima, and Final Fantasy. Notably, the brand new Mass Effect Trilogy: Expanded Edition art book is on sale, just in time for Mass Effect: Legendary Edition.
If you cook a lot at home, official cookbooks inspired by series like Destiny and The Elder Scrolls are at a discount. These make great gifts for others, too (and hey, Mother’s Day is this weekend if you need a last minute gift). Dungeons & Dragons players can save big on a bunch of official guides like the Fifth Edition Monster Handbook and the recently released Candlekeep Mysteries. A few books on the gaming industry itself are also included, such as Ask Iwata, a book about iconic Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata, released in April.
The sale isn’t just about games – hundreds of books are discounted and are also eligible for the multiple purchase discount. Because of this, it is somewhat difficult to analyze all of this and find what interests you. Lucky for you, we’ve gone through and selected as many gaming-related offers as we could and rounded them down below. It’s not all– for example, there are a lot more Halo novels and D&D books on sale if you search for them in the auction search bar – but that should give you an idea of what kind of books are on offer.
