Ultimania (アルティマニア Arutimania?) is a series of comprehensive video game guides written by Studio BentStuff and published by Square Enix (formerly under the title of their now-disbanded publishing subsidiary, DigiCube) in Japan. The name "Ultimania" is a portmanteau of ultimate and mania. [1] The series recorded a cumulative circulation of over 10 million copies at the end of 2007.[2]

History

Before the branding of "Ultimania", Square had released a number of guide books with a similar focus on expanding backstory and including developer interviews and concept artwork. This concept evolved into Perfect Works by DigiCube. The company was then contracted to create Final Fantasy VII True Script Dissection and then Final Fantasy VIII Ultimania, the first Ultimania book. Since then, Ultimania books have been written for every major Final Fantasy title, including Battle Ultimania, Scenario Ultimania, and Ultimania Omega editions for some games.
