Two New FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 Books Releasing in December
Square Enix has revealed two new pieces of FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 merchandise.
Not surprisingly, the game will be getting its own Post Card Book. Set to release on December 15 (the same day as the game), the book will be priced at ¥1,260, and contain a collection of CG illustrations including Lightning, Serah, etc. New characters Noel and Caius will also be included, complete on 24 post cards with an additional 8 page character introduction.
Also announced is a 232 page book titled “FINAL FANTASY XIII-2 Fragments Before.” For ¥1,470, this novel takes place immediately before the events of XIII-2. Similar to FINAL FANTASY VII’s “On the Way to a Smile,” “Fragments Before” will contain several stories revolving around characters such as Serah, Snow, Noel, and Rygdea & Bartholomew Estheim:
Serah: Memories of the year AF0.
New Bodhum: A story of the year AF3.
Snow: The story of his departure.
Rygdea & Bartholomew: The creation of a provisional government, and the secret history of the founding of the Academy.
Noel: The end of the world, a period of uncertainty.
It’s also due out on the same day as the game’s release. Written by Jun Eishima of Episode i fame, the novel is being supervised by Motomu Toriyama and Daisuke Watanabe as well.
Hmm, I do like reading supplements to the story. I wouldn't mind being able to read that, if I were, you know, actually able to read it. Perhaps with the English version of Episode i there is a chance we'll get this as well...?maybe...
