Apparently there was a fansite kit for Xenosaga I+II and III that you could only get by writing an Email to Namco, according to this. I doubt anyone still has that lying around, but maybe someone here knows something or someone? I tried searching for it a while ago already, but found absolutely nothing, but the Saga I+II stuff alone is enough to intrigue me.

Not sure if it's the same thing that was mentioned in the site link, but we do have these fankits hosted in the media gallery on here: XSI | XSII | XSIII

I believe they contain mostly high-resolution official art/renders and wallpapers, plus some other fun stuff. (And oop, looks like I have the ones for Episode I and II saved in zip files on my hard drive, so I'll attach those here as well if the thingy lets me upload them.)

Also! If you're looking for media from the I+II DS game, there's a gallery with scans from the artbook (and other artbooks too).

Yes, I know if the XS1 and XS2 fankits, but I mean the DS game. Didn't know there was an artbook for XSI+II, that's interesting. Still, I'd love to see if the fankit had some higher-quality digital artwork. All I have are some of the wallpapers that were saved on the Internet Archive.

You rock, Valkyrie!

I also spent some time today trying to dig around for "ゼノサーガI・II ファンキット" (Xenosaga I&II Fankit) but I'm not 100% certain that "ファンキット" is how it would be spelled. I found this site (which I've run across in the past, too): https://xenoonline.com/modules/bulletin/index.php?page=article&storyid=174 but got distracted/had to deal with IRL stuff before I could turn up much other than the old waybackmachine'd official sites you mentioned.

ETA: https://www.nintendo.co.jp/nom/0603/2/index.html This seems like a press release?

This is a deep catch, thanks for bringing attention to this, I am curious as to what would be in a I+II fankit. I had not heard of it before.

I know we have stuff from the art book here courtesy of @kare_reiko , as well as the sprites in the gallery.

You can see the pages of the XSI+II artbook in this (French) video :

Thanks for posting this! I don't think I have seen the actual book before.
