A redesigned Final Fantasy IX guide, from Prima? I didn't know such a book existed from them. I'm not sure what they'd base their book off. They'd better not be reworking the Brady guide, that'd still be a waste of paper. The Piggyback guide was supposed to be a bit better, but still had PlayOnline Fuck everywhere.

Thanks for the heads up, Quags. Shame there's no pictures of them up yet.

Despite only owning the PC versions of VII and VIII, the Final Fantasy Box Set has piqued my interest. As mentioned, 'tis a shame there are no pics yet. If the guides are actually packaged in a nice box or sleeve, I'd be quite tempted to purchase it.

Here is a pic of the Final Fantasy 7-9 Mock up. I saw it at San Diego Comic-Con and they weren't completely set on the date for it saying before the end of the year.

Way way wayyyyy too expensive for what they are. At least as far as the Final Fantasy guides are concerned if they are indeed just hardbacks in a 3 part case like the "mock up". These are just game guides. Unless this is limited to something super small I don't see them pulling more than $20~/book in the set. (So around $60)

 

Now if they were like the Hyrule Histora I'd be willing to pay more/book as that would actually have "new" things in it.

Thanks for this. I really hope they lower the price, because $31 per book is kinda ridiculous. Zelda's strategy guide collector's box averaged out to about $13 a book.
