Dark Horse is also the one publishing the Series Memorial Ultimania, so this makes sense

Locked my pre-order in already.

I’m with Spock, I don’t see why it would be Marvel.

I am surprised it’s not Penguin Random House Publisher Services, a company that Square Enix has signed a multi-year sale and distribution deal with for their IPs.

Really wish Dark Horse would release these digitally. I have no need for another physical copy since I already own the Japanese version (and the "short stories" are not worth the money at all) but it'd be nice to get the renders and artwork in decent quality.

I believe that's the Scholastic print.
These are also not great since the "exclusive short stories" they kept emphasizing were like 90% cutscene transcripts lol

Besides that, this book doesn't really have anything going for it.

I don’t really pay attention to stuff to do with publishing companies so I don’t really care who is publishing it, I’m just happy it’s finally going to be in English, as I really liked some of the short stories and it would be really cool to see some of the other content that’s in there as I haven’t seen anything but the short stories that where translated.
