Volume III[edit]

Thus far, no information about a third volume has been announced. In interviews about the game, Michael Christopher Koji Fox has described the amount of work that goes into creating the lore books, and implied that taking on another volume is something they can't handle at the moment.

Reprints[edit]

In July 2021, it was announced that Square Enix would be reprinting the English language volumes, which had gone out of print since the original release. While initially scheduled for April 21, 2022, the release of the reprints was then delayed until August 23, 2022.
