    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 third volume collecting the last five games covers in the series (Final Fantasy X–XIV).Full Disclosure: I am a tremendous aficionado of the Final Fantasy series since when it made it acros 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 third volume collecting the last five games covers in the series (Final Fantasy X–XIV).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. Therefore, this review would have that fanboy bias, but just because it is severely biased, it does not mean that the review is not true.Final Fantasy Ultimania Archive, Volume 3 is a collection of original concept art, process pieces, and notes from the original artists and designers chronicling the last five 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 3 is a beautiful tome of art, lore, and history that is the wonderful franchise of Final Fantasy.

    FFVIX only got a total of 12 pages! Would have been a five star if they had taken the time to showcase the colossal amount of art that exists for Final Fantasy XIV and Final Fantasy XI. The no love for the online games results in the no love for the book.
