Square Enix just announced during the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary gallery opening ceremony that it will be selling the Final Fantasy Ultimate Box collection.
The first game collection, which is meant to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the series, will feature original PlayStation versions of Final Fantasy I, Final Fantasy II, Final Fantasy IV, Final Fantasy V, Final Fantasy VI, Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIIl, and Final Fantasy IX. Final Fantasy III will appear on the PlayStation Portable UMD. The PlayStation 2 versions of Final Fantasy X, XI, and XII will also be included. Final Fantasy XIII for the PlayStation 3 will cap off the anthology.
This set will also contain a video disc housing an anniversary celebration video montage, an art book called Crystal Artworks, a Final Fantasy XIV item code for in-game "mogu mogu" earrings, a mini replica of the Final Fantasy 25th Anniversary visual logo drawn by Yoshitaka Amano, and a two-disc music CD featuring songs from the series.
The collection will be out on December 18 in Japan, which is the release date of the original Final Fantasy on the Famicom system in its native country. There is no word on whether this collection will be on sale in North America, Europe, or the rest of Asia.
[CORRECTION]: This story originally stated Final Fantasy III for PS1 and Final Fantasy XIII for PS2 are part of the anthology. They are actually on the PlayStation Portable UMD and PlayStation 3, respectively. GameSpot regrets the error.
