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.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake Demo Available Now on PlayStation 4

If you’re curious about all the fuss with the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, Square Enix has released a free demo today on the PlayStation Store. Downloading the demo before May 11 will also provide an exclusive PlayStation 4 theme when the full game launches on April 10.

The limited demo includes the opening chapter of the story, centered around the bombing mission of the Mako Reactor.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake stars Cloud Strife, a former strike force member of the powerful Shinra corporation, which controls the planet’s life force. In the opening chapter, Cloud has left Shinra to join forces with a rebellious mercenary group called Avalanche to shut down the reactor in the city of Midgar.

The remake covers only a fraction of the full 1997 RPG, taking place entirely within the opening area of Midgar, but expanding on many story and gameplay elements. The combat system uses a hybrid of real-time action with strategic commands.

Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be released on April 10 with standard, deluxe, and a 1st Class Edition on PlayStation 4. It’s rated T for Teen with Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol and Tobacco, and Violence.
