Fantasy Ultimania Archive will soon be available to an English speaking audience, thanks to Square Enix and publisher Dark Horse.

The full archive is composed of three volumes, with the first available on June 5 2018. Vol 1 alone will contain over 300 pages of original artwork, development details and in-game lore.

The book’s listing on Amazon gives more information on what fans can expect:

“An astonishing journey through the creation of the seminal role playing epic, officially available in English 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.

Dark Horse and Square Enix are thrilled to offer the first of three volumes celebrating the entrancing lore and exciting development of the initial six entries into the Final Fantasy saga. Totaling over three-hundred pages and 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.”

Dark Horse is the same publisher that brought us The Legend of Zelda: Hyrule Historia and The Art of Splatoon, so it has plenty of experience in producing high quality works of “fandom”.

If you are interested in the first volume of Fantasy Ultimania Archive, pre-orders for Vol 1 are currently live on Amazon.
