FFVII Lateral Biography TURKS -The Kids Are Alright-

by October 30, 2011 9 comments

The drought of official FFVII Compilation news has been replaced with a surprising rainfall, by the appearance of a book on Square Enix’s e-store. The book will focus on the Turks, but in what manner is as of yet unknown.

The product details give us these stats on the book:

Release Date: December 15th, 2011
Cost: 1,470 yen
Page Count: 338
Genre: Novel

It is written by veteran Final Fantasy scenario writer, Kazushige Nojima. Illustrations are done by Shou Tajima, whose previous work related to FFVII seems limited to a drawing of Cloud for Square Enix’s manga magazine, Shonen Gangan.

What role will this play in the expanded universe of Final Fantasy VII? When will it take place? Expect TLS to analyse the contents of this book once it has been released.

Thanks to forum member Suzaku for bringing this book to our attention!

    Wow, this is quite surprising! Wasn’t expecting Square to still be expanding FFVII though.

      I was expecting some form of official promotion or publicity before we got something like this. =/
      If not for the assurance from TLS members that all the stuff on SE’s e-store is the real thing, I would seriously doubt this book’s legitimacy.
      Who knows, maybe with this book Nojima wants to plant seeds for future Compilation entries. We’ll just have to wait and see.
