| 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.

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

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 currently, and I know I have already preordered my copy.
If you want to do the same, check this AmaCoN link: http://amzn.to/2xhj5SX
Legend! It seems to be $24 now, just pre ordered myself a copy.

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

|So very into this!|

|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.|

|Any news on the other Ultimanias?|
|Rangers51||Comment 10: 2018-06-16 12:12|
| Good that you asked! The second volume, with 7, 8, and 9 is apparently coming in November. |
|Rangers51||Comment 11: 2018-07-13 19:25|
|I just got an email saying that my copy of the first volume has been upgraded to release-day delivery, so I should have my copy in about a week and a half. Hope the same for you guys!|

|Am I mistaken or does the FFVII Ultimania contain a spinoff novel?|

Are you referring to the original FFVII Ultimania or the anniversary version that's going to include like VII - IX?
Also Rangers, your girl did a really cute unboxing video lol

|Really cute video, Rangers! I gave it a like on YouTube. The book looks fantastic and I wish I had the money to get it.|
