  • Character profiles

  • Keyblade gallery
  • Enemy glossary
  • Concept Art gallery

The Ultimania comes out to a whopping 256 pages and will cost 3,132 yen with tax (roughly $30.61 USD).

Is this similar to past Ultimanias? Should we be expecting interviews and clarifications?

Frankly I'm fine if they give an English version to any western country - that way we can import.

learning Japanese is the bitch :wink:

I really hope this is released in the US, but given it's an Ultimania if not I understand, either way, concept art can be understood no matter the language so this might actually be the first Ultimania I pickup (or import, or whatever).

Are all Ultimanias usually this cheap? I'm actually shocked it only comes out to $30, I would have swore a book that big would have been like $50-60.

Ultimania's is one of the most requested things by the English audiences since it fills in a lot of the mystery and blanks in the series. Releasing this at the end of the HD collections is wise because now fans will have the chance to learn everything as we move into KH3 territory.

O.O

In the survey for 2.5, I asked for a "Kingdom Hearts version of Hyrule Historia".

THEY DID IT.

Do you think, if it came to the US, it would include a lot of stuff in the past Ultimanias we have yet to hear in English, interview stuff and such?

It probably wouldn't be a direct c+p of the previous stuff with translations, but rather a summary of what was said.

That's fine, it's not like it's any new information for anyone here since we have all the past translations on KHi as it is :D

You know, the past Ultimanias are huge

Kingdom Hearts Ultimania - Kingdom Hearts Wiki, the Kingdom Hearts encyclopedia

Don't know what or how much of that they could include...

Wow. Every single one of those is larger than this new one is. Given that this is supposed to cover the entire series, it makes me wonder why it's shorter than all the others. Hopefully it's not going to end up being an overly summarized smush of all the games. If they're going to do this, they should do it right. But hey, it's not even in print yet. Gotta wait and see (assuming Square isn't dumb and releases this outside of Japan)

Great news, I'm definitely sold, although I'm still waiting for an updated BBS Ultimania.

If Square Enix had a dollar for every time I told them to shut up and take my money this evening...

This is definitely something worth to get excited about, even more so if they will finally get an international version of this going. ^__^
