I love the artwork from the game so I pre-ordered the book from Amazon Japan not long after it was announced by Square Enix. The shipping confirmation was received this Monday and it was delivered last night. *_* So fast~!
Anyway, I took some photos of some of the illustrations. Pardon the quality since I don’t have any professional tools or equipment to take incredible photos. ^^
Case in point:
There’s also commentary from Toshiyuki Itahana (character designer), Toshitaka Matsuda (art designer), and an interview with both Yoshinori Kitase and Naoki Hamaguchi, the producer and project leader of Mobius Final Fantasy respectively.
Please don’t request for certain illustrations. This is all I’m planning on sharing. If you like what you see, please purchase the book! For overseas customers, it costs 2593 yen. Along with shipping and import fees, the total ended up as 3773 yen. I haven’t checked what other retailers carry it aside from the Square Enix Japan e-Store and Amazon Japan though so there may be cheaper options. (The SE Japan store doesn’t ship internationally.)
Incidentally, some of the illustrators have posted their Mobius FF works online. Please refer to this post for links to many of them: https://koukoupuffs.net/2016/06/06/the-artists-of-mobius-final-fantasy/ Note: All links were working at the time I wrote that post, but there’s a possibility that some may be broken now. ^^
Before anyone asks, Square Enix has yet to mention if they will release an English version of the art book.
