Final Fantasy Ultimania Coming West


Final Fantasy 30th Anniv.
The Final Fantasy "Ultimania" guides have been lore for Western Final Fantasy fans for many years; I remember first hearing about their existence twenty years ago, but I've never seen one in person. Finally, though, those of us who want to see these guides in a format we can actually read ourselves - not you, smug Japanese-knowing CoN fans! - will get a chance to own them in English.

Next June, Dark Horse and Square Enix will release a 300+ page archive of Ultimania guides covering the first six games of the series in a hardbound edition. It's expected to be the first of three volumes encapsulating the entire series. Amazon, at least in the US, has it listed for just $34 currently, and I know I have already preordered my copy.

Stiltzkin You hero.

Done. Bizarrely, it's listed on the UK Amazon site (same release date), but as currently unavailable. Not sure if that's because they haven't set it live yet, or because all stocks have already been reserved. Either way, I've punted for the US option to avoid disappointment.

Rangers51 A real hero would have posted first and THEN preordered. I'm lawful neutral at best.

Rangers51 Wow, thank goodness for the preorder price guarantee! My preorder now lists as $10 cheaper than when I bought and posted originally.

Perigryn So very into this!
Rangers51Comment 8: 2018-06-11 21:47
Rangers51 For some reason, E3 made me think about this again. I just checked, and the price is at just $28 right now, and it's out in about six weeks. Good time to get your copy ordered, see the link in the first post.
