Following the release of the Rockman DASH 2 Final Digouter's File, we're delighted to share that high-quality scans of the elusive and long out-of-print "Tron Ni Kobun Gappori Guide" are now available on the Internet Archive. This preservation contribution comes from our friends 0xmortis and RockmanCosmo.
Just like the previous art books in the DASH series, the Gappori Guide is packed with concept art of various characters and mecha, including designs that were never fully realized. A good slice of the book also provides a behind-the-scenes look at Capcom HQ, with snapshots capturing the development team's workspace. Those famous life-size Servbot props make an appearance too.
Please be aware that the scans are currently in their original Japanese format. The developer commentary throughout the guide will remain untranslated for now, but as always, if there's enough interest, a full scanlation project could be just around the corner.
In the meantime, feel free to check out the complete guide here!
