Final Fantasy XIII Collector’s Edition Announced

We all knew it was coming, or at least I did, but we now have a confirmed Collector’s Edition for the thirteenth Final Fantasy, thanks to the Official EU Blog. Scheduled for release on the 9th of March for both PS3 and Xbox, the special edition will contain the following:

  • Final Fantasy XIII Original Sound Selection: a soundtrack CD including a selection of tunes from the game, especially chosen for this Limited Collector’s Edition by composer Masashi Hamauzu. The CD is presented inside a slipcase featuring artwork from Final Fantasy XIII, with liner notes written by the composer himself.
  • The World of Final Fantasy XIII: an exclusive hardback book featuring characters artwork, CG rendered images and environments from across the game production.
  • Exclusive Art Prints: 3 highly collectable art prints showing artwork of the Eidolons, powerful summoned allies of the lead playable characters of Final Fantasy XIII.
  • Unique ‘Brand of the l’Cie’ decal: Collectible decal featuring this most iconic symbol from the game storyline.

And, here’s a picture of all the above.


So far, this has only been confirmed for the EU but I’d expect the US to have something similar. Now that I’ve preordered this, when’s Versus out?
