About Us

Final Fantasy Union was borne out of love for the franchise and has continued to grow from strength to strength. Whether it’s interviews with the creators and voice cast, attendance at important trade shows, editorial or our massive podcast, we’ve got you covered as a fan of the series.

Our History

Following the launch and growth of Square Union, Final Fantasy Union was launched in late 2008 to offer a more focussed view of this rather large franchise. The landscape at the time was an interesting one. Final Fantasy XII had launched to a mixed reception and the Compilation of Final Fantasy VII was behind us. On the horizon, we had Dissidia: Final Fantasy and the Fabula Nova Crystallis franchise.

As a signal of intent for the site, we had the opportunity to interview Yoshinori Kitase and Takeshi Arakawa prior to the release of Dissidia: Final Fantasy. We then went to E3 2009 with a larger contingent of Gaming Union. Here, we were in attendance at the Sony Press Conference for the shock announcement of Final Fantasy XIV and then the subsequent Square Enix press conference.

We haven’t looked back, attending E3 and Gamescom numerous times, while also heading to the Tokyo Game Show (love those closed mega theatres), all to get the best coverage for you guys, the fans. We’ve interviewed many, many Square Enix dignitaries, attended tons of press events and written plenty of editorial.

Oh, and we also started up the most successful and enduring Final Fantasy podcast in history and recently partnered with Square Enix for a project related to Final Fantasy Type-0 HD!

It’s been a blast and we hope the good times continue to roll!
