The Dark Souls Trilogy Compendium reprint finally happens

2023 marks the 25th anniversary of Future Press publishing its first game guide—the official guide to Tekken 3 on the original PlayStation. Since it was released in 1998, we have published countless game guides and art books, each one uncompromising in its ambition to enrich the experience of playing a particular game.

To celebrate this anniversary, we asked our followers to choose between four possible candidates—each among our most beloved publications, and long since out of print—for a limited edition reprint. After counting the votes across our channels, the winner—by a very slim margin of victory—is the Dark Souls Trilogy Compendium. So, we’re happy to announce that a special 25th Anniversary Limited Edition reprint will be released in February 2024. The book is initially available exclusively here at, and pre-orders are open now.

This is a strictly limited one-time reprint, so order early to be sure you get a copy. It features unique 25th Anniversary branding and some slight changes to the slipcase and cover, but is otherwise identical to the original printing. Since the victory was very close, though, we’re likely to be celebrating this anniversary with more than one reprint—stay tuned for more announcements!

Armored Core VI Fires of Rubicon

We’re very happy to announce the next book we’ve been working on in partnership with FromSoftware: the official guide to Armored Core VI Fires of Rubicon!

You can expect an over 400-page journey to the depths of Rubicon 3, in which we take you through combat training, teach you about every AC part and upgrade, provide optimal routes for all missions and break down each opponent you’ll face. As a bonus, we’ve created a 50 page S-Rank guide for those of you aiming for true mastery as a pilot.

The book will release in November this year, and you can pre-order your copy here:

Companion Guide or Complete Guide?

In case you’re wondering what the differences are between our original Animal Crossing: New Horizons Companion Guide and this newly-announced Complete Guide, check out the books’ key features and differences in our comparison chart below. Every single page of the encyclopedic Complete Guide is 100% rewritten, redesigned, and packed with extra detail! We’ve spent a long time working on it, and it’s almost ready to go to print—we’ll be showing off some final pages very soon and can’t wait to see what you think of it! If you want to reserve a copy, you can pre-order it here:

We also haven’t forgotten owners of the original guide, but with the Complete Guide being an entirely new and different book it’s impossible to separate all of the new content into a 2.0 update PDF—loads of brand new info about characters and activities that have been in the game from day 1 is mixed seamlessly into the new guide’s pages. But we do have something cooking for original Companion Guide owners, so stay tuned for a PDF update coming your way soon!
