A limited quantity of the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Collector’s Edition are now available for pre-order through the Square Enix Online Store. The collector’s edition will be available at the games launch on February 11, 2014 for both PS3 and Xbox 360 in North America.
The upgraded edition features brand new artwork, a pocket watch, and a DLC code of Aerith’s “Midgar’s Flower Girl” outfit, based on the FFVII tragic heroine. An 80-page hardcover artbook is also included, showing off a bunch of never-before-seen illustrations. Other items include:
- Character Designer Tetsuya Nomura’s original artwork, including his early sketches of the characters
- Foreword by FFXIII Series Art Director Isamu Kamikokuryo
- An introspective look at the worlds and architecture of the Nova Chrysalia world
- A FINAL FANTASY nostalgia section that showcases crossover costumes and series’ fan favorites moogles and chocobos
Lightning Returns: FFXIII CE will set you back $90, but to any fan of the series, this is something you will probably want to pick up for an extra $30 (standard edition costs $60).
