500 Years Later: An Oral History of Final Fantasy VII


500 Years Later offers a thrilling deep dive into the creation of the revered PlayStation RPG. Comprising over 30 interwoven voices, this beautifully produced book will offer unprecedented insight into the craft and ambition behind the game. An extended adaptation of Matt Leone’s celebrated 27,000 word history, published online by Polygon in January 2017, this physical version has been enhanced for print, featuring specially commissioned illustrations, 8 new standalone interviews, and a foreword by series creator Hironobu Sakaguchi.

Designed by Rachel Dalton (ex-Spin/Unit Editions) and featuring original illustrations by sparrows, 500 Years Later will be an exceptional book object, comprising a variety of high-end papers, special inks and high-end production techniques. Each copy comes bundled with a trio of custom made bookmarks to aid and enhance the reading experience, including a die cut codebreaker bookmark, used to decipher a secret ‘Easter Egg’ code found throughout the book.

Please note that as this title is currently in development the final design and specification is subject to change.
