Kingdom Hearts Ultimanias are Japanese informational books about released games in the Kingdom Hearts series. The books contain similar information to a strategy guide, although it goes much more in depth. An Ultimania also contains additional and exclusive content, such as artwork by Tetsuya Nomura, interviews with the staff behind the game, and clarifications on the story. As of yet, no Ultimania has been released outside of Japan, and no plans have been made to do so.
