We don’t yet know many details about whats inside, but we know this: Nintendo and PrimaGames have published two versions of the SSB WiiU/3DS Official Game Guides. One is paperback ($18.23), and the other is a premium hardcover edition ($24.91). Taken from the page, here’s what you’ll get in the hardcover edition:

Premium Hardcover Edition – features unique cover treatments and high quality paper

Bonus Bookmarks and Foreword – includes collectible bookmarks and foreword from the game director, Masahiro Sakurai

Unlock It All – see how to unlock each character, stage and more

Winning Strategies – learn to play your favorite characters with strategies on how to best utilize their move sets

Master Smash Run – full details on the Nintendo 3DS exclusive Smash Run game mode, including how to defeat each enemy and the best use for each power

Complete Coverage – the guide covers all game modes for the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS versions of the game

The free smash bros bookmarks and forward from Sakurai sounds like the best part. Not to say it wont be fun to read nintendo’s guide to mastering characters, but that and everything else can be found on the internet, most likely in much greater detail. If the book contains awesome character art, a bit like the Hyrule Historia, I’m sold.
