on PSP. Final Fantasy XIII
is on PS3, and the rest on PS2, with XI as the 'Vana'diel Collection.'
the compilation's extras include a commemorative DVD, an art collection, and a two-disc soundtrack among other goodies. Ultimate Box releases in Japan for ¥35,000, which translates into just under $450.
Square Enix also announced four 'Ultimania'
encyclopedia-like books, which cover the entire main series of games and include previously unseen artwork. They too become available on December 18.
We've reached out to Square Enix to see if any of these products are headed west. Meanwhile, look out for some pristine photos of the compilation after the break.
