Japanese Localization Company Gauging Fan Interest in Translating Final Fantasy Ultimanias

on April 18, 2014 1:13 PM

An interesting new petition ha surfaced on Change.org today: Paolo Caracciolo, Overseas Department Manager at Interbooks, has come to fans for support — specifically to sign a petition that will drum up interest in a massive translation and publishing of the Final Fantasy Ultimanias.

Those not into the series, and even some that are, may be wondering what the big deal is. For the avid Final Fantasy fan, the Ultimanias are essentially the franchise’s bibles that feature in-depth walkthroughs, official artwork, concept designs, developer interviews about the games’ creation, detailed information regarding each title’s plot, backstory, characters, creatures, setting, and more. Caracciolo’s goal is to build enough interest in these books’ publication, then pitch the idea to Square Enix.

If your interested, you can sign the petition here.
