    To celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Final Fantasy (2012), Square Enix in conjecture with Dark Horse had released the Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive, a three-volume set, chronicling all the main titles of Final Fantasy to date (Final Fantasy I – XIV). It has finally been translated into English with the first volume collecting the first six games in the series (Final Fantasy I – VI).Full Disclosure: I am a tremendous aficionado of the Final Fantasy series since when it made it across th To celebrate the twenty-fifth anniversary of Final Fantasy (2012), Square Enix in conjecture with Dark Horse had released the Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive, a three-volume set, chronicling all the main titles of Final Fantasy to date (Final Fantasy I – XIV). It has finally been translated into English with the first volume collecting the first six games in the series (Final Fantasy I – VI).Full Disclosure: I am a tremendous aficionado of the Final Fantasy series since when it made it across the shores to North America in 1990. I have been a major fan ever since and each successive Final Fantasy was an instabuy for me – it even determined which console I would buy would eventually buy so I could play the game. So, this review would have that fanboy bias, but just because it is severely biased doesn't mean that the review isn't true.Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive, Volume 1 is a collection of original concept art, process pieces, and notes from the original artists and designers chronicling the first six installments in such a timeless and beloved franchised. It has an overview of the plot for each series archived with useful character bios and other lore that is essential to Final Fantasy – in short, it is an excellent reference book for any Final Fantasy fanatic.All in all, Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive, Volume 1 is a beautiful tome of art, lore, and history that is the wonderful franchise of Final Fantasy and I can't wait to read the next volume.
