Square Enix to Republish Artbooks Based on Final Fantasy XIV Heavensward and Stormblood

With a biannual development and publishing schedule for Final Fantasy XIV expansion packs, to date, Square Enix has released a base game and three expansion packs. With each offering new environments, characters, monsters and themes to explore – it should come as little surprise that artbooks on each release have been published. But seven years into the game’s release cycle, it should come as little surprise that some of the books have become increasingly hard to find. Fortunately, this won’t be the case much longer.

Square Enix’s new Manga & Books division has confirmed that four of the full-colour artbooks featuring the characters and world of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward and Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood will be re-published between March and July 2021. They hope that “new players and veterans alike will have the opportunity to own these rich collections of illustrations and concept art spanning each expansion and their patch update content”.

Have you been hoping to claim one of the in-game artbook minions? Each artbook will also include a bonus item code for a specific minion.
