  • Paradox me

    This set looks fantastic. Elegant packaging, Amano’s gorgeous art on just about everything (that disc art!) and more quality games than most video game series could ever hope to contain.

    Needless to say, want. I’d definitely pick this up if they did a reasonably priced Western release.

  • Primal Link

    Oh wow thats a really nice aniversary item! Would love to get it but how will i play any of them :P

  • Barrylocke89

    …wow. I Really can’t say anything else…but wow.

    And “gimme gimme gimme” of course, but that’s a given.

    I notice that they stuck with the console versions whenever reasonably possible. Kinda sucks for FF1, 2, and IV since the PSP versions seem to be the best versions of those games…but then again, I doubt a lot of the people that purchase this item are going to actually play the games…or even remove the plastic. It seems strictly for collectors.

  • Pascal Ebner

    Wow, that looks really awesome, especially the art on the discs – astonishing… too bad i already got most of the games, but wudnt have the money anyway

    Ugh… The PS1 versions of IV, V and VI?  Terrible.  I was interested in this until I remembered the terrible loading times.

    • Paradox me

      I’ve always felt that the loading times were blown way out of proportion. That they even exist is certainly no good, but I’ve played the PSone versions a handful of times and it’s barely even what I’d consider annoying, save for the delay in opening the menus.

      My real complaint is that Final Fantasy II always froze on PS3 after exiting Bafsk Sewers and approaching the Dreadnought. Sure hope that’s cleared up in this release.

      • http://www.silconera.com/ Tsunami_13

        Well I don’t know how bad people made it seem, but it is the internet so I wouldn’t be surprised.  The menu also bothered me more so than the battes It takes somewhere between 3-5 seconds to pull up the menu in Chrono Trigger.  

        Is that the end of the world?  No, but the fact that its something that you encounter repeatedly over the games span does get to me.  For me, in an RPG, interacting with the menu is something that I do a lot of. I think it’s fair for gamers who own the game to expect a re-release to be better or at least be just as good in technical presentation, when compared to the original version.  

        With that said I still play the PSOne version of Chrono Trigger more than the SNES release, since I enjoy the anime cutscenes they added to the game.  But I can see why some still stick with the SNES version since fluidity is much more important to them.

    • kupomogli

      Did you remember the terrible load times or is your memory based on what you’ve heard from other people about Final Fantasy Chronicles(meaning they’re talking about Chrono Trigger.)  People often tend to use other peoples opinions as their own, and even sometimes, like in this case, misinterpret something people may have said, something I’ve seen done many times over.

      Final Fantasy 5 and 6 did have bad load times.  Easily a good five to six seconds each random battle.  Everything else wasn’t too bad. 

      Final Fantasy 4 however loads as quick as the SNES version.  If you deny this, then you are wrong, because it’s fact(unless both games loading the same speed can be opinion.)  Compare Youtube videos of each version, take out your PSX and SNES and compare it, whatever.  Chrono Trigger when going in and out of the menu as well as a slight pause when entering battle, yes, but not Final Fantasy 4.

      Decided I’d help you since it was quick.  Here’s before accepting the battle with Leviathan.  While on the PSX version you see Edge going before Leviathan, it’s clear if you watch the battle through and see Rydia casting Flare it’s because the character is overleveled for this battle.  Also, something I didn’t ever pay attention to before and I just noticed as soon as the battle started.  While all the spells are the same, if you watch the videos, you’ll see spells cast on the PSX title, such as Leviathan’s Tidal Wave, are more quickly executed.  Whether it’s because the game was ported over and they increased the speed on the PSX version of the spells or because of slowdown due to the effects of the spells on the SNES version is anyones guess. I pulled up another Youtube video of the PSX version at the same part and the same thing.

      • RupanIII

        I agree about the load times issue being somewhat overblown. I played though all of them on PSX and didn’t mind. I guess it comes down to each person’s tolerance. The FFV save glitch, on the other hand, grew irritating :P

  • SuperSailorV

    What are the stats on the earrings? lol

    • LazuliteLiamz

      Haha that is what I would like to know as well xD
      Probably the main reason, along with the soundtrack and anniversary disc, that I might get it. Since those PSOne games will only be for display, don’t wanna risk scratching them with my half-dead PSOne, lol.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Lincoln-De-Carvalho-Filho/100002391882086 Lincoln De Carvalho Filho

    Truly beautiful…

  • Laith Rem

    Well I want it.

    …Time to sell a kidney if it comes to Western Shores.

  • LazuliteLiamz

    That looks awesome.. looking at those kinda reminds me of old-time gaming with my PSOne.. like when I first listen to Dissidia 012 Duodecim Ending music. It gives me that chill, a lil bit of teary eyes.. then I start to close my eyes.. remembering those days.. those awesome days.

  • Talbot

    Holy…

    Okay, okay, I know I’ve major issues with one or two entries in the franchise, but seeing them all together in one elegant package is pretty much my whole childhood right there. 

    Yup, looks like I’m going to have to rob a bank for this.

  • Oni123

    “exclusively through Square Enix’s e-Store.” =O i doubt it but do they ship worldwide?

  • ruzanco

    If you think about it.. This is pretty cheap! I mean, who can get FF7, 8 or 9 in less than what $50-$70 worth? Well, okay it’s still a bit expensive. But the good thing about it is that all of them are pretty new. with all the old FFs too. It’s pretty much a fair price. But… oh, tax and shipping now that’s gonna suck hardcore… >_<

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Stephen-Mc-Devitt/100002626261475 Stephen Mc Devitt

    Wouldn’t it have been easier to release older titles on a single Blu-ray disc as in the first six on one disc, the PS1 games on another and one more for the PS2 titles?

    • Paradox me

      Three discs is pretty boring compared to twenty-two, yo. 

      Plus, as a crazed collector with a hint of OCD, multiple games being stuffed onto one disc/cartridge is icky.

      • Evan Groman

        Still, wouldn’t it be even prettier and more OCD-friendly to have one just one disc per game?

    • Heartless ㅤ

      The charm is having every single disc in its singular awesome-ness, along with the artwork and soundtrack extras. It’s something that is collected, and kept close to your heart. It’s the love of Final Fantasy.

      *Sorry. Got emotional there* :’|

    • Tom_Phoenix

      If that were the case, though, you wouldn’t be able to play the games on their intended systems. Which would especially be a problem with PS2 games, considering most PS3 models don’t have backwards compatibility with PS2 games.

  • kupomogli

    If Square Enix releases this to the US I would buy it.  I wouldn’t open it since I’ve got every game anyways, but I would still buy it(well, except 13, but I sold that and wouldn’t ever want to play that piece of garbage again anyways.)

    There’s only one exception.  If this came with Final Fantasy 12 Not So International Since It Hasn’t Been Released Outside of Japan Zodiac Job System Version, retooled for NTSC U and an English translation, I would buy two.  I would open one just to play this version of FF12 in English, legally I might add, and then leave the other sealed.  I’ll also make sure to sell FF13 from the one I opened just because that game is balls.

    *edit*

    One more thing. FF13 sucks. I had to say it again to get my point across.

    • Evan Groman

       How does it feel, having infinite money?

      • kupomogli

        I don’t have infinite money.  I make a quite a bit less than some people that I personally know.  However, these very same people don’t manager their finances well, so I have much more than them saved up. 

        It’s something a lot of people don’t do, but if you spend your money wisely, then you’ll be able to buy any luxury item, within reasonable cost, that you want.  Gaming is probably one of the cheapest hobbies that you can find.  Having a job, minimum wage or not(I’m not entirely sure of this but I think so,) and spending your money wisely, you could pay rent, pay utilities, any bills you might have, car, and then use the rest for food, going out, and games. Just remember that anything that’s not a necessity is a luxury, and whether shopping or getting gas, a lot of people will purchase overpriced snacks here. It’s fine to go to a movie theater or a bowling alley(which are overpriced unless you go to a cheap movie theater or a special night,) but resist purchasing anything as your wallet will come out atleast $10 lighter for just a drink and one snack. One major thing. Unless going out with friends, avoid fast food places or restuarants. That same burger that cost you $2-4 dollars at Mcdonalds will be 100% beef and cost you around a dollar, bun included, if you were to make it at home. Even at a restaurant, the same burger with 100% beef is $8-10 plus drink plus tip. If you’re with friends though, then you should go out and eat at one of those places, because you’re there for the company as well.

        *edit*

        I should write a book. How to be Cheap but Still Throw Money Around.

        • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

          I should add into it, I tend to save as much money as I can while paying the rent and utility bills. Man saving money site like hotukdeals and quidco sure does save me loads of money.

    • http://www.facebook.com/blitzenberger3 Bradley Litzenberger

      Oho ho ho, check this guy out. He doesn’t like FF13.

      Isn’t there some guideline on this site about not hating on things? Or does that not apply to certain games that have a larger, or at least louder, hater base than fan base? Load of crap if you ask me, some guy comes in a few days ago, or a week ago I don’t remember, lodging a valid complaint about how feminazi one poster was about an Otome game I think it was and he gets torn up one side and down the other by the mods. But this guy, along with probably ALOT of other people, bash FF13 and nobody bats an eyelash.

      Sorry but, you can express not liking something without being a friggin’ douche. Or you could just not like it and, *gasp* sell it and move on without reminding everybody of your unending hatred for whatever it is.

      One more thing. You’re a douche. I had to say it again to get my point across.

      tl;dr
      See, I can make a wall of text and insult things too! :D

      • Evan Groman

        To clarify before I start, I have no desire to get into this and I think it’s silly to bash FF13.

        That being said, even though I did not see said posts, what you’re talking about seems a lot more like one person insulting another person, which is really different from one person insulting a game in general.

        I’m pretty sure the mods don’t mind people disliking a game, they just want them to have civil conversations with /each other./

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          People are free to dislike a game as long as they provide well-articulated reasoning for their dislike. We also discourage people from hating on a game over and over. Saying you don’t like something once or twice is fine, but going on and on about it in every post gets old, boring, and annoying.

    • FitzpatrickPhillips

      Congrats on letting everyone know you hate FF13. I’m sure you feel like a special snowflake. Excellent points as to why, by the way.

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      How mature we are! Perhaps you need to be reminded of our posting rules, seeing as how you flipped out in the PS All-Stars post, too, and started calling everyone that isn’t sold on the game a fanboy.

      Here: http://www.siliconera.com/open-thread/

      Also, this happens to be your second warning. Just thought you’d want to know.

      • Evan Groman

        Serious question, what’s the point of warnings?

        What’s the worst case scenario, he gets banned and he has to use a different account?

        I mean, I personally wouldn’t be too terrified of that, but I guess I’m not involved enough in the community to care about my commenter identity being taken away.

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          If someone’s really annoying, we IP ban them. We keep track of people that hop IP addresses, too.

    • Herok♞

      I believe most of us can read and interrupt you dislike FF13 from your initial comment, so you don’t need to make a edit just to clarify. also if you opened it and sold FF13 it would be pointless, the games probably don’t have individual cases, so you would just be selling a disc of a game that is already readily available(for cheaper then buying a special disc at that), so even if you hate it just keep it to retain the full value of the set if you ever want to sell it, like I hate FF12 I think its the worse game but I would not get rid of it because then, I would screw myself over if a unbiased collector wanted the complete set for good price.

  • Heartless ㅤ

    Need this released in the west. 

    GIMME ALL INTERNATIONAL EDITIONS!!!

  • Stranger On The Road

    while it is looks like it would worth owning, it would have been nice if they offered a 2nd copy that only have the disc. I really have an issue opening the collectors edition just so that I could get my hands on the game*.

    although, Square Enix, I am still disappointed that you won’t sell the PC version of FF7 to me just because I live in one of those “other” regions!

    * yes, you can read that as: I buy 2 copies of the game, the collector’s/limited edition and the regular edition. A good percentage of my collector’s edition collection are all still unopened!

  • MrSirFeatherFang

    So, is Final Fantasy X the PS2 version? And I find it funny that Final Fantasy III is the only PSP game there.

  • Matthew Dickinson

    That’s stupid. Did anyone look at the price? They could have put this on a couple of Blu-Ray discs. 

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Giving the PSX versions of FFI~FFIV is kinda cheap, moreso considering FFIV for the PSP came with the After Years so for what they offer you’d be missing on content. I’m also disappointed they chose not to include Dissidia Duodecim as that too is a nice tribute to the FF series. Still, if this would come overseas, in English, I’d considering buying it~.

  • http://www.geekrevolt.com/ DeShaun Zollicoffer

    This is cool, but it would have made more sense to pack them n a few Blu-rays. I don’t even still have a PSP, and I don’t want to get another one for one game lol.

    • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

      Yah, I think the PSP part is the biggest problem.  Most people have PS2′s, and your PS3 can play PS1 games.  But PSP’s, well, those aren’t quite so common.  Maybe in Japan this isn’t a problem, but for America I bet they change that.  If they bring this to America, which I would think they would do.

  • OatMatadoQuatro

    Lightning’s hair? Onion Knight looks nothing like the kid from Dissidia
    Why Final Fantasy IV for the PS1. That has long loading times. Why not the PSP version?
    Also, Final Fantasy X is in PS2 format. It would be weird to directly release the HD version in an artbook without trailers or anything.
    Finally, I see no Final Fantasy XIV. I wonder why? XD

    • Brandon Chang

      It’s the *original* original FF3 protagonist, the one from Amano’s concept art. OK and Luneth were both (somewhat) based off of him.

  • awaiken

    Sexy

  • Tales_of_Master

    Why isn’t the Final Fantasy IV PSP version available in this package ? They’re including the PSP FFIII version so why not FFIV ? Otherwise, I’m sure this would be cool for the FF fans, but I stopped being one a long time ago.

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_S2UKKIGGOA4V5EIFXAD7BQQOV4 Heehee

      The same could be said for FFI and II.

      • Tales_of_Master

         Oh yeah, those too. WTH Square >:c

  • http://epiclyamazing.wordpress.com/ AzureNova

    Wow! Square really went all out with this one. Looks good =)

  • RmanX1000

    Wouldve been pleased with just a 3rd Dissidia game for Vita… but… cant complain here!

  • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

    Yessir!  This is how you colebrate your 25th Birthday.  Very cool indeed.

  • Nemesis_Dawn

    A little disappointed they didn’t just put them all on PS3 discs and that FFIII is still on PSP.

    • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

      True enough, but all things considered this is still pretty awesome.

  • Rentekabond

    You’d think they’d put the improved International Versions for all the games and not just FF7. Also, Dissidia/Duodecim would’ve been a cool addition.

    The collection does look awesome though, if a bit to expensive for my blood. I like the redone CD art.

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      I genuinely am surprised that at least Dissidia 012 wasn’t concerned for this collection. If anything, that game is the one most representative of a Final Fantasy celebration.

      • malek86

        They also skipped FFX-2 and FFXIII-2, as well as fan favorites like Tactics.

        I guess this is simply for order. Like in Theatrhythm, where the “story mode” only has tracks from the 13 numbered games, while tracks from other games appear in different modes.

        • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

          What surprises me more is that this is only for the PlayStation systems, and yet, somehow, Wada managed to convince Iwata and Microsoft Japan to make appearances at their anniversary thing. 

          I guess Final Fantasy still counts for something, despite the fact that, as a brand, it’s lost some of its significance.

          • malek86

            Well an Xbox collection wouldn’t contain much. Essentially just FF11 and FF13+2.

            Though a Nintendo collection would have been nice. Imagine a 3DS cartridge containing the first 6 games in the series.

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            Well, Theatrhythm was the 3DS “celebration”. I’m just saying, it struck me as odd that Microsoft and Nintendo agreed to talk the series up at this event when Square were putting such a Sony spin on it. 

          • malek86

            @Ishaan:disqus Nintendo has a pretty good relationship with Squenix due to Dragon Quest, so it doesn’t surprise me that they did it as a favor (besides, like I said, FF has been popular on Nnntendo systems too). Microsoft is a bit more surprising, but maybe they were just trying to get into Squenix’s good side.

            And I’m afraid Theatrhythm is not much of a celebration. After just 3 hours in, the game feels disappointing. With hindsight bias, I would have rather had a 6-pack collection than this.

          • Tom_Phoenix

            Well, maybe they made some backroom deals with Nintendo. Maybe, in exchange for all the mainline FF titles appearing on Sony systems, Square Enix is going to develop several FF titles for the 3DS, like the FF VII rema-

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrv1roq_gBw

          • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

            Bahaha. I don’t think they’d require any backroom deals, though! FF is very much a multiplatform series. I have no doubt we’ll see numbered FF games on both 3DS and Wii U and Xbox-whatever going forward. They’ve already talked about potential FFV/VI remakes on 3DS and a multiplayer remake of Before Crisis: FFVII.

  • TheDarkEmpress

    Wanna know what would’ve been a really nice celebration? Release date for VSXIII.

    Just saying.

  • http://twitter.com/alixraen alixraen

    Well, at least I know now I have a few months to save up. Thanks for the heads-up.

  • SirRichard

    I’m liking the elaborate anniversary editions that hold a ton of games from the franchise together at once, although the way this one needs you to jump around several consoles is pretty awkward.

    • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

      Get a backwards-compatible PS3. Problem solved.

      • MrRobbyM

        Easier said than done.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/Altin-Bujupaj/1157167838 Altin Bujupaj

          Play the PS1 Games on your PS2. What, you dont have a PS2 ? Shame on you.

          • MrRobbyM

            Who said I didn’t? I’m saying it’s easier to say “just buy a backwards compatible PS3″ than actually doing so.

      • SirRichard

        Except that introduces a whole new problem of finding a backwards-compatible PS3, and still doesn’t address the issue of possibly needing to buy another console to make full use of this set.

      • Koulamatata

        It would be much easier to just jump from console to console than to try to do the impossible.

      • Tom_Phoenix

        I wasn’t aware the PS3 can play UMD games. =P

  • Monsley

    Ok, I want this so bad.
    Square Enix, why don’t you ship internationally? :’(

  • revenent hell

    I might go with the books…but this I cant say im hyped about it since I already own all the games and the collecter in me just isnt wanting of this….and I realy dont have an extra 450 hanging arround lol eh I suppose if I had money to burn id get it.

  • Safros9

    V PS1 and VI PS1…. so long as they got rid of the slow down or the long loading times I would definitely consider buying this.

  • Marcelo Henrique Chaves

    Where’s FF Tactics, Crisis Core and Type-0? Also i didn’t like the cd covers. The original ones are way better.
    I’m not getting this. I’m considering the book collection though.

    • Herok♞

       All 3 are spin offs, this is the 25th anniversay set for numbered games.

  • りんごタルト@エスカのアトリエ

    The best idea Squeenix can think up right now is to bring this overseas. I’ll pay for it. With all my money.

  • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

    Why is PS2 not listed next to FF X?  Or is that just a typo?

      Just a typo. It’s PS2.

      • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

        Of course not.

        • Mark Fate

          If by ‘news’ you mean ‘actually being released soon’. I do believe it was confirmed a FFX HD remaster was being made a while back.

          • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

            By news I meant anything besides confirmation of its existence.

    This NEEDS to come to America.

    Also isnt it funny that their all disks except for the one umd..lol

  • Alexi Arias

    That Cecil disc… it must be mine!

    Now normally I would ask why it isn’t the PSP version of Final Fantasy IV but I don’t want the disc art to be covered up like FFIII. How about just porting the PSP version to the PS3?

  • http://www.fogalchemist.com/ caleb1993

    This is a true 25th Anniversary collection. Why couldn’t Nintendo have done this for Zelda? Square, I love you so much right now. Even though this will most likely never leave Japan, I still love you so much for showing this much support for the FF series and its fanbase.

    By the way, I really want the FFVIII disc. That Squall image is astounding!

  • http://gamgambit.tumblr.com/ Thespian Treasure Hunter ♢

    Lol, Squall’s pose.

    Hey, Cecil stole Squall’s pose!

    I kinda wonder why Firion is always on the center, not that I mind since I think he’s cool :P

    … It’s official, Sephiroth is Cloud’s stalker.

    • komiko12

      Yes, they really had to include Sephiroth in an artwork of FF Protagonists… I repeat, PROTAGONISTS.

  • kevinposta

    Mmm, I’d honestly have preferred a one-disc collection.
    I already practically own FFI to IX minus III on the PSP, with better versions of I, II and IV. And if they HD remaster XI, XII and port XIII on the Vita then the Vita could potentially play all the series.

  • Herok♞

    If I would love to buy this, but it is way to expensive for my tastes $250 is the most I would be willing to go since you can easily buy FF1-9 digitally for less then $100 and then the rest wouldn’t cost to much seeing as they are recent games.

  • Historiata

    I don’t have anywhere NEARLY enough cash nor interest to get this, but it’s good to know that Square’s willing to put these kinds of things out there for the die-hard fans after all these years.

  • $36598391

    It would be nice for Square’s Saga series to get this treatment

    • neo_firenze

       Well, they did do the AWESOME 20 disc SaGa soundtrack box last year for SaGa’s 20th anniversary. Frankly, I like that box a lot more than the FF one – I have all the games, as most hardcore FF fans do by this point with the many re-releases.  Soundtracks are harder to find, and every OST in the series is much better than a 2 CD sampler like the FF series is getting.

      Also, SaGa would be more of a logistical nightmare since the series spans so many different formats, some are cart-only, and that some were only made on Nintendo systems and some only on Sony…

      SaGa 1-3: GBA (1 and 2 getting DS remakes)
      Romancing SaGa 1-3: Super Famicom (RS1 with a PS2 remake)
      SaGa Frontier 1&2: PSX
      Unlimited SaGa: PS2

    well because those kind of releases  never satisfy EVERYONE i have to rise up and say:
    really? two f discs of the amazing music of ff? 2? TWO? not even a complete collection matching the games included on…i dunno thumbsticks? ain’t it less costy?
    440 bucks for all of those. yep they are milking fans. i personnaly don’t care much, i hope they sell them all and they will but the two discs of music i couldn’t swallow that.

  • http://www.facebook.com/stale.laastad Ståle Laastad

    is the covers of the games changed?
    if so, that would make it a nice addition, i just cant see myself buying it when i almost own all the games..
    by all means, its a beautiful package, but not free :P

  • Katamari Toys

    lame, it should be a REAL ultimate box, with the carts from NES, SNES, spin-offs, etc, not all the games that was released/remake for Playstations :/

    • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

      That would be cool and all, but how practical is that?

      • KillerRamen

        It’s a $450 set, so it’s already not exactly practical. Although, I’m not sure if you can even make some of the older Gameboy carts anymore even if you wanted to. They probably could have just put those ROMS on one Blu-Ray disk or something.

        …I kinda think that it should have at least included 10-2 and 13-2. 

        • http://twitter.com/VXLbeast VXLbeast

          I forgot that 10-2 existed and overlooked that 13-2 was left out.  Kind of odd that they chose not to include those.  Of course no one expects them to include offshoots like Tactics or Theatrhythm, but 10-2 and 13-2 seem like a given.  

  • Learii

    so much but i want all of them tho lol btw what is the 25th anniversary video?

  • Luis Camargo

    Nice box, but I would rather have:

    -Final Fantasy I,II,III for the PSP 
    -Final Fantasy IV Complete Collection for PSP
    -Final Fantasy V, VI, VII, VIII, IX for PS1
    -Final Fantasy Tactics WotL for PSP
    -Final Fantasy X,X-II and XII for PS2
    -Final Fantasy XI, XIV for PC
    -Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2 for PS3

    And digital copies for FF I to FF VI (PS1 Classics)
    Also, a much bigger OST and artbook. It’s the 25th anniversary, they have a lot of content to sell

      Aand Dissidia 012.

  • BadenBadenPrinny

    If I actually bought that, those FFVII and FFVIII discs would go on ebay so fast it’s not even funny….

  • PK212

    I think it’s kinda funny that my favorite FF games were X-2 and FFVII: DoC yet they are not in this set. Oh well haha.

  • $24431191

    This is cool and all but it’s way too expensive. I’d be tempted to buy it if it were a little cheaper. It is a very nice collection though. Also unless they released an English version, import fees would make this cost even more.

  • Tom_Phoenix

    I wonder if this collection is one of the reasons why Square ported FFIII to the PSP; so that they have the entire mainline series on Sony platforms.

  • D H

    Ah… was pretty excited, and then I saw all the Amano art adorning everything…  Not for me, thanks though.  I just don’t like his artwork, it always gives this… unfinished look to it.  Plus, nothing ends up looking anything close to his artwork in the games, like they knew something was off about it or something…

  • Freud_Hater

    Wow. Not gonna buy it but, gotta be honest, if I hadn’t lost all hope in the Final Fantasy series, I would buy it. Lots of good games in there.

  • Total_Overdose

    I’m questioning my sanity because I really want this…but mostly because of the Amano art piece with all 13 protagonists.

    I actually own most of the games…Whelp, have some time to mull it over I guess.

    EDIT: Just to let people know, the Square Enix JP e-store does not accept debit/credit cards issued overseas.

    Sucks…hopefully those import sites get those links up pronto! :)

  • Zeromus321

    Couldn’t Square-Enix just release this on 2-3 blue-ray discs instead of all these different discs for consoles some people don’t even have anymore?

    • Quinton Cunningham

      All the PSone titles would be playable on any PS3.

      • Zeromus321

        I know, But the PS2 ones would not be. Unless they had a PS2 or Fatty PS3. But still the amount of discs is over-kill, they could easily fit these onto 2-3 blue-ray discs.

        • dotzeno

          you’re right. they could. but they’ll probably save that for some time down the line… when they can figure out how to ask for the same amount for less discs and corresponding artwork.

  • http://twitter.com/redmotman Oba Luke

    i am on it 

  • Yamaneko22

    That’s nice, but I don’t really see a point of buying a collection of games, that I already own (except PSP FFIII ). Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary Ultimate Music Box would tempt me so much more than this…

  • Ben Sylvia

    That’s pretty awesome.

    Even with FF10 getting the HD treatment, I’d still get it.
    That art piece is pretty awesome.
    And the compilation soundtrack.

  • Visa Vang

    Can’t reach it… Not enough funds…

    Not really played FF, only FF2 PS1 Classic on the PS3.
    Although, this looks like a collectors item I’d really like to get my hands on, however, I’m broke. Oh well.

  • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

    My… my wallet… my dreams… D:

  • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

    Wait… is this all playable on what system? o-o 

    • Visa Vang

       On their respective original systems.

      • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

        Aww… so I can’t play them all on my PS3 D:… booo I still want it… T_T

        • Visa Vang

           You can. If you have a PSP, you can do remote play with the PS1 games and if your PS3 is backwards compatible you can play the PS2 game on it.

  • http://www.facebook.com/arianna.webb.3 Arianna Webb

    Do you think all the games will have Japanese text only? That’s my only worry as I’d like to play them all eventually and not own this just for a collection piece.

    As much as I want… I dont have money, and Ive beaten all but 3 that i care to beat

  • Lee Chueng

    where’s Type-0?

    • OatMatadoQuatro

      In “localization hell”
      BTW, the box only contains the main games.

    • Visa Vang

       Type-0 is a spinoff from Final Fantasy XIII so, it’s not in this 25th package.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=533805789 Stephen Smith

    am i the only one wondering why there’s 4 discs to ffvii when there was originally only 3?

    • malek86

      The fourth disc was exclusive to the International version, it was a sort of encyclopedia.

  • http://www.tenshi.org.uk/ Angie Winterbottom

    I bought Final Fantasy 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 on PSN during a sale the other week, for under £35 total. Those are the ones I like the best. They are all installed on my Vita. That’s good enough for me.

    The bonuses on this package are nice, but not nice enough to cost 577% more.
