The Love is Over deluxe edition costs $79.99. Atlus urges fans who want the Love is Over version to pre-order it since the deluxe edition only enough copies will be made to fulfill reservations. A standalone copy of Catherine will retail for $59.99. Reserve Catherine for either PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 and you’ll receive the bonus Atlus offered to Japan – a CD with eleven tracks from the game remixed by Shoji Meguro and a 36 page art book.

    Aw large, too big.

    Glad a bonus soundtrack and artbook is included.

  • Barrit

    I’m glad the artbook and soundtrack are included with the pre-order of the regular edition. The deluxe edition stuff doesn’t really appeal to me.

  • http://twitter.com/matty_125 matty

    I’m getting that pizza box! It’s a very nice upgrade. I think this makes it the fourth time I’ve seen boxers used as a bonus for a video game.

  • http://chronotwist.deviantart.com/ JustThisOne

    There’s no way Catherine wears that t-shirt with such a high cut in-game.

    Also, Vincent boxers?! WANT.

    • puchinri

      I thought she does? It wouldn’t be right any other way.

  • http://twitter.com/Paradox_me Paradox me

    It’s strange. I was on the fence about Catherine since the gameplay doesn’t really look like my cup o’ tea, but the story seems interesting. Now I have a pre-order on Amazon.

    I like those boxer shorts.

    • puchinri

      The story is very interesting, and there’s an interesting twist at the end (well, I know for one route there is).

  • Volcynika

    Totally buyin.

  • Exkaiser

    Vincent boxers are a better underwear-related bonus than Etna’s panties.

    • http://www.youtube.com/user/Juddgment Judgment8

      Yup, I might actually wear those >_>

      • Testsubject909

        Just wait until you see a video of someone wearing Vincent’s Boxers properly and Etna’s Panties as a mask.

        And nothing else…

        • http://twitter.com/#!/Leafy_Cam Leafhopper

          D:

    • SeventhEvening

      They should have given us a pair of Catherine’s panties too. Especially for the “Love is Over!” theme.

  • PrinceHeir

    damn it, this looks nice O_O

    hmm Pre-Order… my parents have to monitor what i order :(

    if only more Limited Editions are being sold in retailers(at least in very small amounts)

    i would soo buy them in an instant :P

    • Vino (Tim N)

      You can’t put $5 dollars down at a local EB games or Gamestop?

      • PrinceHeir

        im not sure if they’re willing to sell this? besides i hate my local gamestop, no offense but they’re plain assholes when it comes to video games. the employees are rude, they’re always check for your ID when ordering any game(despite other non-foreigners not being asked), they are also clueless when being asked about a certain game.

        but you know what, i might try it. gamestop is good when getting newly fresh games. especially Limited Editions(almost every MGS limited edition comes from them WTF?!)

        i was pissed Peace Walker LE was only available at gamestop and Kojima was touring at NY to promote the game at that time. i went to gamestop to order the LE game. and the guy was nice enough to say that he’ll reserve a copy of me by tomorrow(despite it was only for reserves only, but they have tons of LE lying around the back) , so i went the next day but there’s a different employee. the good employee was kind enough to sell me one since they have more that weren’t reserved. then this idiot lady butts in and said it was only for reserved. and the guy said well we already have tons more, but the lady keep insisting it’s only for reserves despite having more at the back. so yeah i never order again at gamestop. i do however manage to get the normal edition at my local store and was signed by kojima during his tour. but yeah would have preferred if i had gotten the LE instead.

        kinda wish more local stores offer limited edition. i love buying through them, no more hassle, you pay what you see and their more informative than any gamestop iv’e ever been.

  • http://twitter.com/Buuhan1 Kyle Fedora

    Considering the shirt and boxers probably wouldn’t fit me, I’m basically only getting the pillow case for 20 extra bucks. Not worth it.

  • Neckbear

    No Sheep Plushie, Atlus? ;_;

    On a more serious note, I’m going for the normal version with the artbook and OST, I don’t know, those extras aren’t exactly my kind of thing.

    • puchinri

      Aww. Now I’m seriously disappointed with these bonuses, I want the plushie instead now. ;u; They could have even hired Natsume to make the plushie for them.

  • heartless141

    i’d prefer the RAPE shirt, seriously gonna get one of those printed out.

    • http://www.twitter.com/christaran Chris Taran

      I must have missed that one while playing through the game…

      • heartless141

        It’s Vincent’s shirt lol, how can you miss it?

        • http://www.twitter.com/christaran Chris Taran

          Hmm, I always thought it said “Rave.” Perhaps I was subconsciously blocking it out o_o

          • heartless141

            haha, depends on the mindset i guess xD

          • puchinri

            I thought Rave too, and I think most people did. x’D;

    • puchinri

      Is that all it says? Because I can see why they wouldn’t choose that if so…

  • [The Hunter] Doomrider

    Pretty original special edition!

    Unfortunately, only Amazon .com and .ca are selling this edition (at least, the site only lists those two), and they only ship games to addresses in their respective countries. Bah.

    More interested in the t-shirt and CD+artbook than anything else, but it would be nice to have the other items as collectables.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Simon-Olliver/1347169583 Simon Olliver

      happen to have a link to the special edition on amazon.com? I can’t see it..I can see the normal edition and the “alternate boxart” one, but not the spec ed…

    • glemtvapen

      It’s funny how putting just “Catherine” on the search bar doesn’t reveal the deluxe edition on the results. You have to put “Catherine deluxe” to make it show up. Pretty sneaky of amazon.

  • http://www.youtube.com/user/ArcadeInfinity scott

    Not getting this, going to get the soundtracks from a japanese store as an alternate. I’m slightly disappointed actually.

    I thought after that Maximo ps2 game heart boxers we agreed never to use boxers for pre orders again.

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      What, why not?

      • http://www.youtube.com/user/ArcadeInfinity scott

        Lets just say the story involved a friend who tried to wear the boxers and his ass was too big and the boxer material was too thin.

  • http://twitter.com/OhKeh OhKeh

    Though this special edition is original, none of those are really things that I would make use of (besides the game)…

    • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

      I think the shirt looks pretty good to go out normally (while it’s not XXXXXXL like persona 4′s one…) And with a jacket it will look pretty normal, and the boxers… well, it’s not like people will be checking out what boxers you have xD

      • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

        Are you kidding? The first thing I ask someone when meeting is what underwear he/she has on! If no one would ask that, why wear them at all? xd

        • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

          …Because it doesn’t feels very confortable to not wear them?… It would surely harm you you know… xD

    • puchinri

      Same here.

  • https://twitter.com/#!/Ojsinnerz Firo_Prochainezo

    Welp. More money down the drain. I’ll probably get this.

  • Zero_Destiny

    This is good. I’m in desperate need of some nice clean boxers. XD

    Really though you had me at OST and Artbook. ^_^

  • cmurph666

    This works out perfect since I haven’t bought a new pair of boxers in years~!

  • http://slitherup.tumblr.com/ THRONE

    Always size large… kind of a disappointment because it will probably fit like a moomoo on me, but I get why it’s done. I’ll have to take a pass, at least with the konamistyle persona 4 package I was able to pick the shirt size.

    Shame, I like the pizza box it all comes in, maybe I’ll have a change of heart in a few months.

  • http://twitter.com/thesupersakura Kristina Wright

    Alright, so let me get this straight if I get the deluxe edition on either system I’ll get some boxers, a t-shirt, pillow case, pizza box and if I preorder it I’ll get the CD and artbook?

    If this is all true I believe I will dish out the 20 extra for this! I want those boxers. *_*

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      That is how it’s been elucidated on AMZN.

      • http://twitter.com/thesupersakura Kristina Wright

        Awesome. I believe I got purchase it right now. =)

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2GXUZR4ZYTCOF4M32F227P4CS4 Tien

    Do you still get the artbook and CD if you order the deluxe edition? You get those as long as you pre-order it right? It doesn’t matter if it’s the deluxe edition or not

    • [The Hunter] Doomrider

      You do, go pre-order it.

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      Version doesnt matter, all versions get the Art + Soundtrack.

      • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2GXUZR4ZYTCOF4M32F227P4CS4 Tien

        Cool. Thanks for the reassurance

  • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

    Deluxe edition all the way alone for the pillow and the pizza box!!! Also, nothing better than to play a game as authentic as possible, which I will do with the boxers!!

    • Guest

      But do you have a fro

      • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

        Not yet, but I’ll have one when the game comes out just to experience the game as true as possible! Maybe I will even call two girls I know to me while playing so they can reflect Catherine and Katherine!

        • Zero_Destiny

          Then when you’ve beat the game keep the fro and rewatch Ideon. That way you can be as close as possible to Cosmo and thus enjoy the show more. lol But then again I wouldn’t try to imitate the movies too much considering the endings. :P
          [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M5i3H-mgoTE]

          • https://twitter.com/RaiohV ShinkaRaioh

            Yeah, but for that I need to color my fro red and also need a machine that could destroy the whole universe to really relive the show!! On the other hand like you said I probably shouldn’t go that far into authenticity when it’s about Ideon..I still need to play some games before that~

          • Guest

            What about your sheep horns

  • Darkrise

    Wait wait WAIT! Is this edition also going to be for retail? AND is it only for U.S? Or is it just through amazon.

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      US & Canada, Amazon and Gamestop. I believe there is a European retailer doing it too?

      • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

        Actually i guess no euro…

  • http://thrust-the-sky.deviantart.com/ WildArms

    HAHAHAHAHA OMFG I LOVE THIS, IM SO GONNA USE THOSE BOXERS

  • Detsuahxe

    “Atlus urges fans who want the Love is Over version to pre-order it since the deluxe edition will only enough copies will be made to fulfill reservations.”

    I sense a grammatical hiccup.

  • http://twitter.com/RefueledPants Jordan Slovsaki

    So is this offered at Amazon only, or will Gamestop have this up for preorder in the next few days? I would much prefer to pick it up in store so I get it day one for sure, but I really don’t want to wait just for Amazon preorders to run out and for Gamestop to never list it.

    • http://profiles.google.com/zferolie A.J. Ferolie

      I would also like to know, since working at gamestop gives me a discount for stuff like this.

    God damn it! I hope the 360 version gets a UK / PAL release in the future

  • LynxAmali

    So…that aren’t throwing a soundtrack CD in by default? Damn it, Atlus. You just want my money. Should I give you access to my bank account now or later?

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Humzah-Jan/100001147084979 Humzah Jan

    Freaking want. Especially the T-Shirt and Pillow.

  • http://www.youtube.com/B4ULoveShine Tim_at_where

    I wonder what’s the size of the boxers. :s

  • MisterDandylion

    Wow, this edition looks awesome! :)

    But I have one burning question: this Deluxe Edition is only available within the U.S.?

  • IceRomancer

    Aww looks like I’ll be getting the standard edition :(

    I’d never use that pillow case, that shirts not my style, and I gave up on cotton boxers quite awhile ago. Lol

  • Pichi

    I would use the shirt as a sleeping gown. Not sure for the boxers, probably keep it and that box as a collectible. Maybe I’ll use the box for putting things in. Interested in the Deluxe Edition, but have to wait till I’m sure I have the funds.

  • puchinri

    Can’t the ladies have a pillowcase with Vincent on it? Or can’t there be one with Katherine? I’m not too interested in the bonuses actually (outside the CD and art book), but I’ll still pre-order the Deluxe.

  • AzureNova

    Take my money you bastards >_< LOL

  • http://twitter.com/katamariTo Katamari Toys

    So sad that I cant buy it (Amazon dont ship to my country), I will end paying at least twice that value to a ebay seller…

  • http://twitter.com/GamiMatsu Gami Matsu

    *O*

  • Ladius

    This is the Atlus USA we know and love :D Great limited edition, this time they were able to give Aksys’ Agarest limited a run for its money XD

    I am a bit worried though: will it be available to European fans on sites like videogameplus or will it be some sort of Amazon-exclusive deal?

  • YoFace

    That pillowcase will go perfect with my other forever alone stuff. Awwww yeaaa.

  • thebanditking

    So those who pre-order the regular version still get the OSt sampler and the art book? Awesome, good ol’ Atlus never leaves you out in the cold. Especially since those are the two items I would want the most. I will admit after so many LE releases I am growing tired of $80 editions, it always ends up like “oh this is cool (..puts in closet never to be seen again)”

    • Aoshi00

      I agreed.. very rarely I look back at an LE and tell myself “thank god I got this, money well spent”.. usually it’s “why did I waste money on this thing that takes all so much space and am never going to look at again”… From Atlus this might be rare later (but pillowcase and boxers and t-shirt are still no use to me anyway)… but for most LEs, they drop in price so fast in a couple of months they’re cheaper than getting the regular ver (like Alan Wake, Castlevania LotS, Bioshock 2 w/ the vinyl/artbook, etc even though those are great and worthy LEs), that’s when the regret sinks in..

  • http://twitter.com/#!/kaishou Kaishou

    Too bad I can’t import the xbox 360 version as it’s probably going to be region locked. Even if this was to release in Europe, I doubt we would get an awesome deluxe edition. Please do something about this! :(

  • ufoflash

    great now i have to find 80$ as soon as possible…….. but still this looks interesting. but um one question does any one know if you can get these bonuses from some where like game stop or do you have to order from Atlus’s website?

    • http://tristsantithesis.tumblr.com/ Tsunayoshi Sawada

      Amazon and Gamestop

      • ufoflash

        oh ok thank you. i was worried about that but as long as i can get the limited edition at game stop or amazon then i don,t have to worry about that.

  • thaKingRocka

    Once bitten, twice shy. I got the Maximo boxers back in the day. They didn’t really fit. In all fairness, I was just too fat. They were reasonably sized … for Japan. As for Catherine, just the game will do for me.

  • papuruka

    Now that’s a dakimakura I won’t mind having~

  • Aoshi00

    Wonder if it’s the exact same artbook that came w/ the Jpn ver, w/ very few pictures and some comments translated.. the OST w/ the rearranged classic tracks is definitely worth it..

    Alrdy blew $160 on this game before… I think I would just go w/ the regular (was gonna wait for a price drop, played this game to death alrdy..), the only thing I really want from the deluxe is the pizza box….

    And on Amazon now.. there’s a total of 6 versions to order from… regular, alternate, deluxe for PS3/360, that’s quite a lot of choices…

    • Code

      If only the pizza box came with delicious pizza omo; Oddly enough it was the first thing I eyed too, lol >w<; Must steam from years of collecting, and keeping game boxes; they got a special place in my heart opo;

      • Aoshi00

        Would’ve been nice if they do a promo w/ a pizza chain w/ real pie and Catherine box, but then the box would be all oily lol.. It makes me think of those 7-Eleven slushie movie tie-ins like Iron Man or Thor…

        BTW, did the Nin-2 Jump save file go corrupt on you after you load it again? I heard there’s a glitch. I had to replay the whole game to get all the achievements in one go..

        • Code

          Haha yeah opo; I wouldn’t want the pizza grease to ruin the box either >w<; Actually no idea about Nin2-Jump, admittedly after playing it, I had picked up Trouble Witches Neo, and haven't been back to it yet xpx; So no idea if my save is still intact or not; I'm kind of afraid to check now opo lol

  • Souji Tendou

    Ah crap, it’s mostly about Catherine. Where’s my Katherine edition…?
    You better make one Atlus because that’s what I want.

  • http://twitter.com/ChaseBurr Chase Bonner

    preordered the ps3 one on amazon

  • http://otoboku.se manga

    And the only setback to this is that the only place that has it up for preorder isn´t shipping it internationally so I can´t preorder it. Had my cc out and ready to pay. “Can´t ship to your adress”…

    Damn you Atlus if you don´t release the preorder to other companies as well that do ship internationally.

    I wonder how people will react to this Deluxe Edition(thinking back to the “naughty edition” of Agarest from Aksys).

    • http://twitter.com/OPAS_Advantage OPAS

      You can get your own US address and international shipping to any country if you use package forwarding! Try http://bit.ly/gN2oGK

      • http://otoboku.se manga

        That sounds like asking for trouble so no thanks.

        And besides. Now VGP added their Love is Over preorder option so I can order it without any problem at all so I´ve preordered it.

    I don’t live in the states and amazon won’t ship video games abroad. Is there a way to get the deluxe version preordered and mailed outside the states asides from ebay?

    Boxers are “AWESOME”

    Pillowcase will go in the incinerator

  • http://twitter.com/catsdontsmile Matias Welz

    Those boxers and that t-shirt = my new PJ for cold winter nights.

  • SeventhEvening

    I wish they’d let me select clothing size. A men’s large would be a bit baggy on a guy as thin as me. And I’m sure someone out there wishes the shirt were larger.

    Additionally, I’d never use the pillow case. I don’t want “Love is Over!” to define my personal life too. As cool as the replica pizza box is, it isn’t enough by itself. I’ll probably stick to my regular edition, especially since they throw me a soundtrack and art book anyway.
