Project X Zone Upgraded To Limited Edition For The West

By Spencer . April 11, 2013 . 10:18am

image2013_0322_1358_0Namco Bandai is bundling extra goodies with Project X Zone. The game will be sold as a limited edition with a mini-art book, poster, and music CD packaged with the game. Project X Zone will still retail for $39.99.


This sounds pretty much like the Japanese release which came in a slightly larger box to accommodate the Crossover Sound Track CD and art book called the Appearance Work Guidebook.


Project X Zone comes out on June 25 in North America and Latin America.

    Yes I’m glad I preorder this around May.

  • Go2hell66

    whew at least it still the same price, my wallet can’t take much more T_T

  • 愛憎

    3DS games keep getting better and better :D

  • KingGunblader

    Namco Bandai is on a roll with these Collector’s Editions. I will show my support by buying this. Good thing it’s the same price, because my wallet is already crying over the Xillia CE.

  • Scarletmoonwish

    Hey a quick question i preorder this a while ago, I was wondering do I still get the special edition, or do I need to go back to Gamestop and asked to change my order form regular to special.

    • Curan_Altea

      It’s like a first print bonus. So long as you’re one of the early adopters you should get them all. Like how The Last Story came with an artbook.

      Gamestop will probably call it all a preorder bonus actually.

  • $39420547

    i would have bought the game day one anyway but the extra stuff does make me smile

  • Find it funny that Kurt is in the game but Valkyria Chronicles III never got localized. That still makes me very sad ;(

    That said, this is definitely good news.

    • Masa

      Valkyria Chronicles III translation is nearly done by an online team.

    • Haseyo

      This was made with no intentions of coming to the West, so it was a shocker for all of us VC fans.

    • fayt255

      You just had to mention that.

  • Zonic505

    I’ve waited so long to hear confirmation about the JPN bonuses, and so glad to hear we’re getting them, in addition to a poster. Can’t wait to see what it looks like.

    • Deva Ashera

      Same here Zonic, I was already getting this when it released..but now I’ll throw down a pre-order ASAP! I need this game, its artbook, and its CD.

  • Ethan_Twain

    Has anyone here played this game yet? Is the music in the game good? There have been precious few SRPGs with soundtracks I would actually want a disc for. Actually, Fire Emblem Awakening is the only one I can think of. FF Tactics maybe

    • puchinri

      I like how the music is handled, but it’s nothing special (and there are only so many original tracks).
      It’s hard to say how much of the music and which tracks will make it on though.
      (Here’s a full listing of them.

  • raymk

    I’m all on this, I never knew this had an artbook.

  • I hope it’s not their web store exclusive so my local retailer can stock it.

    • $36598391

      It would have said so if it was

  • Cameron Ward

    so i can get this limited edition from any retailer?

    • Yes, I’m wondering too. Is an LE finally not going to be exclusive to
      Gamestop for once?? lol… but so far, I’ve only found the LE for sales
      on… I need a Canadian retail link, stat!

      • Cameron Ward

        i hope it isnt just for Gamestop

      • Deva Ashera

        Well that all depends on whether or not stores like Wal-Mart, Meijer, Target, etc stock it since its kind of a ‘niche’ game and isn’t likely to sell millions of copies here. However, I still see stores like Best Buy stocking it along with GameStop. Of course though, Amazon and other such online stores will likely stock it.

  • TheExile285

    wait is this LE just $40? I may have to get pre-order this even if I don’t have a 3DS by the time it comes out….

  • dragoon_slayer12

    I think imma pre order it, return the game, then download it. I’m tired of missing out on goodies…. Gamestop needs to do this with the digital versions too….

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Great its the same price ^_^;

  • puchinri

    Snap. Maybe I should go ahead and preorder/reserve it. . . Well-played, Bamco.

  • Sentsuizan_93

    Namco, if I go broke this summer, I blame you…

  • Learii

    can we see the limted edition? for $60 right?

    • 古戸ヱリカ

      Couldn’t make it through the entire first paragraph, eh?

  • They’re making this awfully hard for me to resist, aren’t they?

    • Space_Ghost

      Ditto kiddo.

  • Looks like I’m preordering.

  • I’m very glad to hear about this and the Tales of Xillia collector’s edition. I cannot wait for the release of this in June. Now I have go do some preordering!

  • Irina Zanza Baptista

    Any news on Europe?

    • Confirmed for Europe but no fixed date yet. Don’t worry, though–you guys are getting it for sure. They announced it for both regions at the same time.

      • Irina Zanza Baptista

        That’s a relief! I do want this Limited Edition :P

  • Watahashi

    Mmn, I think I’ll still pass, though that is a little more tempting. The general consensus from Japan and people who’ve imported are that it’s a little too tedious and unnecessarily grindy. Fields with 50 enemies, having to fight each one, only doing about 15% of their HP per unit’s turn, making fields sometimes take over an hour to complete. As much as I love .hack, God Eater, and Xenosaga, this just doesn’t seem worth the grind.

    • If I were with that line of thought, personally I’d still get it just to support games like these, try it for myself, then sell it if it really is that bad…

      I mean, I’m still rubbing my eyes over this even getting released over here.

    • GHNeko

      It was the same issue with Namco x Capcom. I guess when they said for the most hardcore niche fans, they meant it, because, along side me, and everyone else I know who’s put days in gameplay hours into games like FE:A, EOIV, Disgaea, ZHP, Tactics Ogre, etc, is not bothered by this at all. I’m personally looking forward towards all the grinding lol.

  • B-but…! Now I have to choose between this and SMTIV. :< Unless somebody loves me for my birthday and gives me enough to get both.

  • Kalis Konig

    I would just like to thank Level 5, Bamco, Atlus, NipIch, and the like for doing Limited/Collectors editions the right way! I’m tired of all these big named titles getting over on their CE with a DIGITAL soundtrack and a DLC voucher!!!

    • Altair_420

      speaking of level 5……….
      dark cloud 3 is way overdue……

  • Shadowman

    YES! I was wondering about the limited edition one.

  • Might have to sell my copy of Haunting Ground so I can buy this.


    Bamco is my new #1 RPG idol (Atlus is at #2 after not releasing we all know what here). I’m buying everything RPG related to support them. Gotta love these Collector’s Editions, so damn delicious! I had to import Graces f CE from Eu, glad this time both regions are getting it. DOMO Arigatou.

  • Vaporeon23

    Man I’m so happy right now. I will have this, Tales of Xillia CE, SMT IV, and the Muramasa LE preordered within the week when they’re up for preorder at Gamestop.

  • Ceci “Ruzuzu” Kiyomizu

    Yay more collectables on my shelf!

  • pressstart

    Artbook!?!? My one weakness… Jk, looks like I’m going to preorder this bad boy. Thanks!

  • I’ll definitely get this collector’s edition. I mean, FREAKING SOUNDTRACK! I LOVE IT WHEN GAMES INCLUDE THAT IN THEIR SPECIAL EDITIONS.

  • Prinny Dood

    Im definity going to buy 2 :D

  • cirE

    This is what I’m talking about. Lots of goodies and it’s still at the normal 3DS price.

    Now, to wait and see if Atlus gives us any extra goodies with SMT IV. I’m not sure I’m willing to pay their $50 price tag otherwise…

  • Covnam

    Awesome and I love it even more when the limited edition is the default edition. Consider it pre-ordered Bamco.

  • Raoni Marques

    Wait. So every version of the game is the limited edition?

  • Just Tim

    I already paid for this in full; this is a nice bonus.

  • gamefreak86

    So any first copy from any retailer will get these bonuses?

  • s07195

    So they’re ALL limited editions? 0_0

    • J_Joestar

      probably the first printing will all be limited editions, if there are any afterwards they may not be.

  • rezo

    Now this is how you do bundling, add a bunch of extra stuff for free. with out the cd atwork, and mini poster still 40$? Nintendo why are your games cheap and good x_X

  • Kandou Erik

    Well, its not the same Limited Edition. We got barely a dozen character themes on the music CD, and original music. No Mega Man. No Sakura Wars. No Street Fighter. We where scammed!
