Studio Bent Stuff, the guys in Japan responsible for the FF Ultimania guides, is taking advantage of the upcoming release of FF7: Advent Children Complete. The FFVII 10th Anniversary Ultimania, which was more recently released side-by-side with Crisis Core: FF7, is getting an update.
The Revised Edition of the guide will now include to have:
- new info that Square Enix has made known about the FF7 universe since the previous release of the guide in 2007 (as the Crisis Core companion)
- I'm guessing probably more info mostly from the extended scenes of FF7ACC, and that Denzel prequel anime
- an interview with Takahiro Sakurai, the voice actor behind Cloud Strife
- new official artworks
We're not sure if this Revised Edition will be printed in 77,777 copies (like what happened when the previous Crisis Core: FF7 edition), or if they will be bundled with some copies of the FF7ACC Blu-ray. What we do know is that Amazon Japan already has pre-orders, with the guides to be released the same time as the FF7ACC Blu-ray on April 16.
Most otakus (especially FF fans) will know that the Ultimania guides serve as a one-stop shop source of info for a game or series. In this case, ithe FF7 Ultimania has everything you needed to know about the FF7 universe, from the original FF7 game, to Dirge, to Crisis Core, and of course Advent Children.
