Catalyst Game Labs is continuing its quest to fulfill BattleTech fans’ every wish by bringing back the out-of-print illustrations for several mech models. The press release has more:
In 1996 numerous images originally licensed from several Japanese anime sources were retired from use within the BattleTech universe. Those illustrations formed the bedrock of the BattleTech 2nd Edition and BattleTech 3rd Edition Box Sets and were generally considered “fan favorites” across the board. These images—such as the Warhammer, Marauder, BattleMaster, Phoenix Hawk and so on—became known as the “unseen.”
After much blood, sweat and tears, Catalyst Game Labs is exceptionally pleased to announce the return of these “unseen” images.
New versions of some of the “Unseen” mechs will show up in upcoming BattleTech books. The return of these image rights will be particularly useful for Catalyst’s BattleTech: 25 Years of Art and Fiction, which is already being previewed here.
