Square Enix’s line of Ultimania guides continues still with the Scenario and Battle Ultimania books being released on the 31st of January.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 Scenario Ultimania will cost 1575 yen (~20 USD) and consists of 512 pages. Final Fantasy XIII-2 Battle Ultimania is slightly more expensive, at 1785 yen (~22 USD) with a bulkier 704 pages. Both books are A5 size.
Inside the Ultimania Guide for Final Fantasy Type-0, there was a small section regarding the Ultimania for the upcoming Final Fantasy XIII-2.
Like Final Fantasy XIII, XIII-2 will have two Ultimania Guides; ‘Scenario Ultimania’ and ‘Battle Ultimania’. Page counts and prices are not known yet, but the guides will be released in January of 2012.
Ready for your yearly dose of Versus news? Tetsuya Nomura pops up in an interview in the recently released Final Fantasy Type-0 Ultimania. In it, he says that the design for Moogles in Final Fantasy Versus XIII will be close to what we’ve seen in Type-0. There you have it. Announcement of Moogles in Versus. Not exactly world stopping. He doesn’t go into any more detail of how the adorable creatures fit into the much darker world. Maybe they’ll all be dying.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Final Fantasy Type-0 would be to North America and Europe by an interview Spanish site Vandal had with Kitase. Everyone rejoiced over the fact that the game would finally be coming to our coasts, but then doubt was thrown into the equation when the site removed the paragraph pertaining to the international release.
Thankfully, Type-0′s Ultimania has been released with an interview confirming that Tabata and the team are working hard on the overseas version of the game. It comes with more good news though. Tabata also says he’d like to do a direct sequel to the game (Type-1 as he unsurprisingly calls it) featuring the same characters and world. He even says he’d like to put it on consoles rather than a handheld. It makes sense considering the amount of effort they’ve put into the first, but he said it does depend on player reaction to the first, so buy, buy, buy, if you want more.
As with all big Square Enix releases, Final Fantasy Type-0 will be receiving one of the impressive Ultimania Guides. As usual, the overly large book will be packed with Maps, Guides, Side-Missions, Ability and Skills tips, and everything else you could possibly need to know about the game and more.
Type-0′s Ultimania weighs in at a whopping 848 pages. It hits stores on November 30 for ¥2,100.
