Square Enix has announced a fun gift idea for Final Fantasy super-fans. Two Final Fantasy 7 art books are launching later this year, based on upcoming blockbuster RPG Final Fantasy 7 Remake, which releases on April 10.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake: World Preview is a hardcover, 100-page art book filled with full-color illustrations. It also includes “essential information on characters, settings, gameplay, and more.” Game director Tetsuya Nomura and producer Yoshinori Kitase provide introductions and commentary. The World Preview book will release on September 8 for $24.99.
The Final Fantasy 7 Poster Collection collects 22 full-color, large-format, removable art prints. The posters depict scenes from Final Fantasy 7 Remake as well as the original Final Fantasy 7, and spin-offs Advent Children, Dirge of Cerberus, and Crisis Core. The Poser Collection book will ship November 17, for $24.99.
Both books will be launching via Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and the Square Enix store.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake is large-scale remake of the beloved 1997 RPG, greatly expanding the scope of the game’s first area, Midgar. It stars Cloud Strife, a former corporate soldier turned rebel mercenary as he makes new allies and battles the oppressive Shinra corporation in the city of Midgar. The game will release on April 10 for PlayStation 4. It’s rated T for Teen.
