Here’s What Eighty Dollars Gets You in The Final Fantasy XIII-2 Collectors Edition

We’re still a few months away from the release of the Moogle-riffic sequel to Final Fantasy XIII, but that ain’t stopping Square Enix from tantalizing fans with a beefy Collectors Edition. Plunking down the extra $20 dollars gets you a fancy sleeve illustrated by the legendary Yoshitaka Amano, along with a high-end concept art book and a four-disc official soundtrack set.

Of course, there’s pre-order incentives that vary depending on where you reserve the game. Do it at GameStop, you’ll get an alternate costume for Serah. An Amazon pre-order gets you an exclusive boss battle against an enemy baddie called “Omega,” who can joins your party later. Plunk down your cash at Best Buy and get the hardcover Final Fantasy XIII – Episode I novella, which bridges together the stories of XIII and XIII-2. Anyone interested in picking any of these up should note that they’re exclusive to North America. Because Japan’s probably getting something cooler.



Final Fantasy XIII-2 dated worldwide, bundled with limited edition system in Japan

Final Fantasy XIII-2 will arrive in America on January 31, Square Enix announced today at Tokyo Game Show. Europe’s version will follow on February 2. Japan’s release is set for December 15, with an extra option (above).

The first Final Fantasy XIII was accompanied in Japan by the lovely white and pink Lightning Edition PS3. With another Final Fantasy XIII game comes another limited edition, Japan-exclusive system — this time in “pearl black.” There’s still a lot of pink. The Lightning Edition Ver. 2 PS3 will include a 320GB hard drive, the game and a controller when it ships in Japan, at a price of ¥37,960 ($495).
