Final Fantasy is a booster-based product in the Magic: The Gathering Universes Beyond series released by Wizards of the Coast. It will be released in 2025.[2][3] The set is designed to be drafted.[4]

Set details[ | ]

Final Fantasy is a cross-over product based on Final Fantasy, a Japanese science fantasy anthology media franchise created by Hironobu Sakaguchi and developed and owned by Square Enix. The franchise centers on a series of role-playing video games which variably combine elements of medieval fantasy, urban fantasy and science fiction. The first game in the series was released in 1987, with 16 numbered main entries having been released to date as well as numerous spinoff entries. Each main entry is not a direct sequel to the one before it but rather a new story in a different universe, although many of these universes share elements such as creatures (ex. chocobos, moogles, summoned monsters and battle enemy types), themes, and recurring names for characters and places. A handful of main entries have had direct sequels, such as Final Fantasy X-2 and Final Fantasy XIII-2.

The franchise has since branched into other video game genres, as well as other media, including CGI films, anime, manga, and novels.

The set will reference all main entries released so far, from Final Fantasy to Final Fantasy XVI.[3]

Storyline[ | ]

The central conflict in many Final Fantasy games focuses on a group of characters battling an evil, and sometimes ancient, antagonist that dominates the game's world. Stories frequently involve a sovereign state in rebellion against a larger empire, with the protagonists taking part in the rebellion. The heroes are often destined to defeat the evil as "Warriors of Light" and occasionally gather as a direct result of the antagonist's malicious actions. Another staple of the series is the existence of two villains; the main villain is not always who they appear to be, as the primary antagonist may actually be subservient to another character or entity. The main antagonist introduced at the beginning of the game is not always the final enemy, and the characters must continue their quest beyond what appears to be the final fight. The game's setting is usually not the planet Earth, though it may have similarities to it, but rather an expansively mapped science fantasy world which may or may not have a name of its own. Crossovers such as Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin and the fighting game sub-series Dissidia Final Fantasy have established that the various Final Fantasy dimensions share a multiverse.

Stories in the series frequently emphasize the internal struggles, passions, and tragedies of the characters, and the main plot often recedes into the background as the focus shifts to their personal lives. Magical orbs and crystals are recurring in-game items that are frequently connected to the themes of the games' plots. Other common plot and setting themes include the Gaia hypothesis, an apocalypse, the heroes' defiance against fate and the gods, and conflicts between advanced technology and nature.
