Final Fantasy box set announced for $450

Shares

Square Enix has unveiled a huge new box set for the Final Fantasy series that encompasses the entire main series. The set will run dedicated Final Fantasy fans a hefty 35,000 Yen, which translates to about $446.

The set includes every game in the main series up to Final Fantasy XIII (including FFXI and all of its expansions.) It will not include the latest game in the series or any of the side story games. Apparently Square Enix doesn't want Dirge of Cerebrus and Final Fantasy XIV interrupting your nostalgia-fest.

The set also includes a number of extras as well, including a "special video" about the series, an art book, a two-disc soundtrack, a code for an item in FFXIV, and a statue of a moogle. 

We don't currently know whether Square Enix has any plans to bring this over to the West from Japan. It's a hefty price tag, but this thing would look mighty fine next to the Street Fighter box set we still can't afford.

The set will be shipping December 18, 2012.

    Don't you need three different consoles to play all the games? You'll need two if your ps3 is backward compatible but otherwise you need a ps2, a ps3 and a psp. Final Fantasy (PS1, 1 disc) Final Fantasy II (PS1, 1 disc) Final Fantasy III (PSP, 1 disc) Final Fantasy IV (PS1, 1 disc) Final Fantasy V (PS1, 1 disc) Final Fantasy VI (PS1, 1 disc) Final Fantasy VII International (PS1, 4 discs) Final Fantasy VIII (PS1, 4 discs) Final Fantasy IX (PS1, 4 discs) Final Fantasy X (PS2, 1 disc) Final Fantasy XI Vana Del Collection 2 (PS2, 1 disc) Final Fantasy XII (PS2, 1 disc) Final Fantasy XIII (PS3, 1 disc) It's a nice box set but that's kind of dumb.

    I've played the PS1 ports and really, really don't recommend you play those versions. A DS is will help you cover every Final Fantasy from 1-6 better, you just need to get a few of the GBA releases. But I think that a ton of the older games are available on PSN for download, so that should cut out a lot of problems.

    Oh, I finally clicked the link to realize what you were talking about... Apparently this is the worst collection idea ever.

    just face it guys jrps is dead there a dead genra and wrpgs is superier in everyway so ditch this garbege final fanasty stuff and get a real rpgs insted like fallout new las vegas or ifenety blade or gears of war

    It is the other way around. Games like Fallout are a bore fest. Nothing ever happens in those wannabe-RPG's, while JRPG's are fun to play, if you are in to RPG's. Fallout (and other Bethesda games)tries to be open world and RPG-ish, but they think that will satisfy all, with just those two things apparently. There is nothing else of interest in the game.

    It's no use wasting your time explaining to this guy. He doesn't understand true art.

    He kind of 'is' art.

    not enough information for a journalistic article.

    I really wish that they'd just put it on discs for just one console, as 4 separate consoles to experience everything seems more than a little bizzare.

    If it's on the PS1 2 and 3, can't they all be played on the PS3?
  • Cyberninja - September 1, 2012 11:03 p.m.

    No some PS3s don't have the ablity to play ps2 games and for some reason FF3 is a PSP umd

    Damn.
  • zombi3grim - September 1, 2012 6:24 p.m.

    Oh hell yeah. This is worth every penny. The only thing is, since the games have been released on multiple platforms over the years...are these games all playable on one platform? Or whats the deal with that...
  • RobbieTheDarling - September 1, 2012 6:35 p.m.

    I-IX are on PSOne discs, X-XII are on PS2 discs, and XIII is on a PS3 Blu-ray. I wish they would just compile all of the games onto three or four Blu-rays instead of making this thing so bloated, but it's still one hell of a package!
