Default Dark Horse Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive




Article taken straight from Crunchyroll.com:


Coming in Summer 2018, North American fans will get a chance to collect a comprehensive art book chronicling the history of the first six classic Final Fantasy games thanks to Dark Horse and Square Enix. Oregon-based Dark Horse is announcing their plans for Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive Vol. 1, the first in a series of three books.

Dark Horse describes the book:
Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive is an astonishing journey through the creation of the seminal roleplaying epic, officially licensed for the first time ever!

This holy grail of Final Fantasy fandom is packed full of original concept art, process pieces, and notes from the original artists and designers chronicling the creation of these timeless games. Containing a total of over three hundred pages collected in a high-quality hard-cover binding, Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive Volume 1 remains faithful to its original Japanese source material while simultaneously offering unparalleled accessibility for Western readers. No Final Fantasy collection is complete without this beautiful tome of art, lore, and history.

Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive Volume 1 goes on sale June 05, 2018 and is available for preorder at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, TFAW, and your local comic shop.
A long time coming to be sure, but these will definitely have a home in my game room when they're released!

Correct. They've also published Amano's "The Sky: The Art of Final Fantasy" collection.

I'm so glad Dark Horse finally officially announced this. I've been sitting on this information since July 25th after being sworn to secrecy by a source, and keeping a lid on it has been killing me.

Great news! I was thinking of getting the 30th anniv amano post card sets, but this is surely much better !

And it is planned for 3 volumes, so i guess each volume will cover a decade in FF history?

So hyped for this!

Not exactly. These books were originally released for the 25th anniversary. The first covered I-VI; the second covered VII-IX; and the third covered X-XIV.

I'm doubtful they'll be updating it to include anything about XV, but we can hope.

Odd news: apparently these books will be getting released in French long before the English translations are available. Mana Books is releasing the first book in their own localization effort tomorrow:

http://www.afjv.com/news/7893_final-...-ultimania.htm

How did we not know this?

Rather amusing is that they're starting with what should be Volume 2 (because of VII, probably).

Well, anyway, for those of you who know French and don't want to wait, you can order this instead.

Do actual, serious, love triangle debates even still happen? I thought it was well established that AerTi is the true canon pairing by now.

Wait so it's just a translation of these books and not new books?

Yeah, but I'd rather have nothing for a change. How do you do it?
Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

I wonder if there's a German translation in the works. You guys seem to get stuff like novels. Can't remember who published otwtas.
