Dissidia: Final Fantasy Limited Collector’s Edition Is Only For Europe

By Spencer . July 3, 2009 . 9:00am

europcEurope is the last region to get Dissidia: Final Fantasy in the world, but Square Enix is making it up to PAL territories with a limited collectors edition version of Dissidia.

 

The collector’s edition contains:

Dissidia: Final Fantasy in unique packaging.

The best soundtrack mini-CD (perhaps, the same one Amazon is offering as a pre-order bonus).

A hardback, 48 page Dissidia art book with character artwork and CG rendered art.

A mini-game guide with character descriptions, a walkthrough, and more character art from Brady Games.

Two exclusive lithograph prints that Square Enix is not showing us today.

 

The funny thing is unlike other Crisis Core Europe isn’t waiting that much longer for Dissidia. A domestic release is scheduled for August 25. Europe gets it on September 4th.

    Maybe they’re trying to make up for the years of late releases as well? : P

    Also, does anybody else not like the new PEGI logos?

    The world needs more video game art books. That’s how they end up suckering me into pre-orders.

      I agree. I see a book and it instantly rises on the “to pre-order” list.

      Too bad it’s a Europe only pre-order, I’m in North America. You’d think they would give the bonuses out in North America as well, since there are a ton of pirates over here. Some incentive to buy might, possibly, lower the amount of people who were on the fence about buying/pirating.

        For once, I lucked out on having moved out here to the UK.

        But I definitely agree, pre-order goodies are usually great incentives for pirates to pony up the cash for a game. I remember the punchdoll that came with Lunar 2.

        Although, I do wish they’d do more separate art books based on video games. I’ve got the Okami one and it’s gorgeous. I’d love a Fatal Frame, Layton, and Harvest Moon collection (just to name a few).

      And I need more money.

    The press release lists clamshell packaging as a feature. Oh gee, I want to be able to pay extra to cut my finger off while trying to open the thing.

      I think (or rather, I hope) that means it’s like the Crisis Core box where everything fits in snugly. The horrible clamshell packaging for a game would be… ridiculous.

    Mm, I hope the art is available elsewhere too. I’m a sucker for art and artbooks =D

    Anyone know where this is availible for pre-order (for American consumers)?

    You know its all fun and games until one region gets an exclusive artbook, then it’s serious :P. Tetsuya Nomura is one of my favorite artists and remains as the only reason S-E is not completely talentless, but finding artbooks from him is impossible. Out of all the artbooks I have/want Dissidia is by far the one I would want the most. Nomura’s art covering the entire FF series plus some of his best and my favorite designs (FF8 and FF7). Though it depends on how big the book actually is, from the looks of the pic this is a cardboard bifold box which means there is no guarantee that the game comes in a real box or that the artbook is not as small as a normal PSP game case. Still I will be watching this and contacting my favorite import shop (NCSX.com)

      Do they import games from Europe, Tom?
