imageFinal Fantasy XIV is on track for a 2010 release. It’s not even that far away either with a September 22 release date. That’s when the Final Fantasy XIV Collector’s Edition arrives in Japan.

 

This package includes: the game, a tumbler, Final Fantasy XIV security key, Eorzea – The Making of a Realm DVD movie, one month of free play, and two virtual items: an Onion Helm and Garond Goggles in box art designed by Yoshitaka Amano.

 

A standard edition with one month of play will be released on September 30. Pricing for both games is “open”, which means its up to retailers to set a price.

 

After the free month, Final Fantasy XIV costs 1,280 yen ($14) for a thirty day subscription.

 

The announcement, posted on Famitsu, notes the PlayStation 3 version is slated for release in early March 2011.

 

Update: The US Collector’s Edition is a bit different. You still get the making of DVD, security key, and Amano-san package art. However, the tumbler is just for Japan. We get a travel journal with new concept art and a right of passage certificate instead.

 

In North America, Final Fantasy XIV costs $49.99. The Collector’s Edition is $74.99. Both bundles come with a one month subscription. Afterwards, Final Fantasy XIV is $12.99 a month.
