Developer Square Enix announced today a mega box set celebrating the 25th anniversary of the legendary role-playing video game Final Fantasy. The 35,000 yen ($446) compilation, due December 18, costs a pretty penny, but it offers hundreds of hours of classic gameplay plus a few extra bonuses.
The massive Final Fantasy collection includes every major title spread across over a dozen discs, with one major caveat -- the whole thing works only with Sony gaming consoles. For example, Final Fantasy I-IX (except III) come on separate PlayStation 1 discs, Final Fantasy X-XII on PlayStation 2 discs, and Final Fantasy XIII comes on a PlayStation 3 disc. In addition, if that were not demanding enough, one would also need a PSP to play the version of Final Fantasy III included with the set. Each game disc features some artistic character representations, along with a fancy case.
Of course, Square Enix packed in some other goodies with the set, including: a numbered Final Fantasy 25th anniversary art print by legendary artist Yoshitaka Amano, a 128-page book of official concept art and illustrations, a 2-disc anniversary music compilation, a special video showing off the history of Final Fantasy, and an in-game item for Final Fantasy XIV.
