Cook & Becker's designers visited Square Enix's Tokyo office for several days, working alongside the game's art team to gather a range of images, many of which were cut for room or because they were too small to display in high resolution. The game's artists helped with determining the flow and layout, but pushed the publisher to not stick too closely to the game's narrative arc and to not go into "too much detail" about those aspects, and rather focus on showing the art.
