    I’d buy that 25th Collection with all the games + new artwork in a heartbeat. I love Amano artwork.

  • AgitoXIII

    Can anyone tell me who that FFXIV character representative is on the circular picture of the heroes on that Anniversary disc is? It’s like the 5th pic from the last. To the left of Warrior of Light and to Lightning’s right…
    I can’t play XIV atm :/

    Thx Tony! I’ll view it later when I can stream it at the library today.
    I really really wonder what the “Future of FINAL FANTASY” is. I wonder if were about to see a FFXV anouncement. MGS5 just got announced at it’s 25th anni show.
    Perhaps Agni’s Philosophy is XV?

  • AgitoXIII

    Damn, I wonder if that FFXI disc is only the original game, or it with all 4 (5) expansions?

  • vegna lesca

    I think its kinda dumb to have PS ports of FF 1 2 4 5 and 6 in the box, since the GBA ports are better

  • Tony Garsow

    @AgitoXIII It’s the Ultimate Collection disc that includes all the exansions.

  • gmoyajp

    I be getting this in dec since it’s 25th anniversary FF, i been around with them for 24 years about.I cant wait and cant wait for the new FFXI expention pack and new stuff they have for us on FFXIV.

  • AgitoXIII

    lol It’s hilarious how you guys keep mispelling EXPANSION LOL. Don’t worry, I’m a crappy speller at times too XD.

  • TheExile285

    I want that box set…

  • Cat

    Does anyone know if both the Ultimania and game box set will be available for US? I tried ordering from the JP site, but felt a little uncomfortable with the language barrier, so I quit :0
    Both my boyfriend and I want to order a set for ourselves ASAP.

  • Seraphim Perezz

    Now thats a big disapointement1 Versus is comming along just fine?? thats it? after 6 years thats it?? wow no new footage or screenshtsnothing??? big disapontement

  • AgitoXIII

    What the hell else is new with that game?

  • anony

    Kool all 14 main figures in one poster, I would Like to get that and the ultimania with the game box. I wish they translate the ultimania set, but that is very unlikely.

    Versus info might be at tgs, i doubtthere is a surprise.
