Just when we thought he’d dug deep enough into his reserves, Andrew Vestal surprised us today with an auction for the Final Fantasy XII announcement book. This is much, much more than just a pamphlet.
You are bidding on a copy of the Final Fantasy XII announcement book given to members of the Japanese press on November 19, 2003 at the announcement event at Roppongi Hills. This was the first time Final Fantasy XII was ever shown outside of Square Enix’s offices. This box includes several rare items never made available to the public.
The announcement book includes:
- Plastic slipcase (with shelf wear commensurate with the age of the item)
- Announcement book (excellent condition)
- Media CD (unopened)
- Final Fantasy XII card case (unused)
- Set of four printouts detailing the logo, main characters, and world of Final Fantasy XII
- Set of four pencil boards detailing Ashe, Vaan, Ivalice and the Final Fantasy XII logo
- Ticket stub for the event
Please note that the Final Fantasy XII game is not included.
Also included are three pieces of Square paraphernalia:
- Licensed Final Fantasy VII for the PC watch
- Licensed Final Fantasy VII Shinra card case (used – leather is dented as seen in photo)
- Square LA logo pen
This auction will close on March 29 at 13:19:58 PDT. Proceeds will benefit Global Giving.
