Bravely Default Collector’s Edition Revealed For Europe, Includes Figurine [Update]

By Ishaan . October 23, 2013 . 4:20am

In Europe, Nintendo and Square Enix will be releasing a collector’s edition of Bravely Default. This will be available on December 6th and will include the game, Agnés figurine, an artbook, a set of 34 AR cards and an original soundtrack CD. In the UK, the collector’s edition will be available via ShopTo.net.

 

Update: Nintendo of Europe have confirmed to Siliconera that the collector’s edition is exclusive to ShopTo.net. GAME stores will only stock the regular edition of the game, and pre-ordering this will allow you to avail the smaller artbook.

 

As previously reported, this is the updated version of Bravely Default, which is titled Bravely Default: For the Sequel in Japan. It comes with a number of improvements and tweaks, such as more character animation during conversation, an increased number of story events and the ability to adjust the game’s random encounter rate to your liking.

 

In addition to the items above, as a special pre-order bonus, you’ll also be able to avail a smaller artbook if you pre-order the regular edition of Bravely Default from GAME stores in the UK before its December 6th launch. Nintendo also mention that the game will also be available from the Nintendo eShop for download.

    • ronin4life

      Nintendo is still in the process of wooing the EU region, so don’t expect them to allow this elsewhere…

      So many pre order bonuses and LEs… T.T

      • $36598391

        Yea… looks at the Pandora’s Tower LE that EU got from NoE and we only got the game by itself

        I haven’t even gotten around to opening my copy of Pandora’s Tower yet, might do so when I get a Zelda Wii U

  • TheExile285

    NA BETTER get this too or there is gonna be blood >:3

    • NBXX

      call me if need help starting the fire >:3

  • Prinnydoom

    My only question is the soundtrack will it have all the ost’s or just some of them. I remember getting muramasa rebirth and being disappointed it didn’t have all the tracks and if thats the case here i don’t really think it be worth it.

    • Malon

      The idea of having a “compilation” also crossed my mind, and I think it’s safe to assume that’s what will happen, look at other CE which were released with an OST : Tales of Xillia, Final Fantasy XIII-2, Muramasa.
      It always was a selected musics compilation.

      But nothing keeps you from buying the “complete” one.

      • Prinnydoom

        *Sigh* I remember the good old days where i got a game with a complete soundtrack. I guess it would cost a lot more to have the complete soundtrack but hey whatever thats what youtube is there for.

        • British_Otaku

          Senran Kagura’s game releases consistently have the whole soundtrack (31 tracks for both 3DS games), a mini art book and drama CD as a free preoder bonus.

          If Versus did the same thing, it wasn’t that long ago. :P

  • Guest

    INSTANT BUY

    Come on, an Agnès figurine. AGNÈS. AGNÈÈÈÈÈÈÈÈS

  • Malon

    INSTANT BUY.
    It feels good living in Europe, sometimes.

    Plus come on, Agnès figurine. AGNÈS. AGNÈÈÈÈÈÈÈÈS.

    • Tom

      Sometimes. Except when it comes to Trauma Team. Still hurts when I think about that game.

  • r0gamer940

    bring this stateside now!

  • Go2hell66

    beautiful

  • Sentsuizan_93

    I’m not gonna have a wallet at the end of the year at this rate….. Damn that Deluxe Edition looks amazing. Pre-order confirmed!

  • SirRichard

    Yessssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss.

  • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

    Got the game pre-ordered at Shopto. Now, I’m going to pre-order it at GAME. Just need someone to update their site so I can get my CEs.

    Edit: A little sad that we don’t get that black case. That was so beautiful!

    Edit 2: *cancels GAME preorder… “patiently” waits for CE to become available*

  • KHSoraKeyBlade

    Yep. Day one for me.

  • Anoia

    Wait, is this available from ShopTo or GAME? There’s some conflicting info between sites.

    • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

      GAME will have the extra artbook as a pre-order bonus, appears to be exclusive as well.

  • http://www.tenshi.org.uk/ Angie Winterbottom

    GAME need to get their website sorted out and put up these pre-order items. This, the Tales of Symphonia PS3 collector’s edition, Legend Of Zelda Link Between Worlds Special Edition, One Piece Romance Dawn… so many European exclusives I want to preorder, and it’s like they don’t want my money!

  • kylehyde

    this look so beautiful. Please NOA by like your good brother NOE

  • Jrpgfanatic

    I can look the other way on the several SE limited editions EU got that NA didn’t until this point, but if this doesn’t come to NA I’m going to be furious because this looks amazing!

  • JuVu

    Oh my God, this looks just plain awesome. Preordering straight away.

    But that German age rating on the game box… hope it’s not in every CE.

    • British_Otaku

      Unfortunately, that was the case with The Last Story and One Piece Unlimited Cruise SP’s limited editions. Basically, they had tons of language options, so they could ship them to any store in PAL land as long as all of the ratings are shown (PEGI for most of Europe plus USK for Germany).

      If you bought a copy printed specifically for your region, or not Germany, you wouldn’t see it… So basically, buy a normal edition to avoid the USK.

  • Rytan

    Please tell me we’re getting this in NA too…

  • TheRealMalek

    Still no news on where to preorder it in france…

    • Malon

      Il y a que le royaume uni qui a des infos, patience. :p

  • School Idol Addict

    Damn it suck that it seem they have changed the boxart, i would have prefered if they would have used the same boxart as the japanese version.

    • Max

      Remember you’re not getting the first Bravely Default, you’re getting For the Sequel, the japanese boxart hasn’t been revealed but it will probably be the same.

      • kuroneko0509

        It is the For the Sequel boxart. It was revealed before in a nico broadcast

  • British_Otaku

    The USK rating ruins yet another cover and the portable games always get it worse. >_>

    • landlock

      It won’t be on the UK version. It never is thankfully. It’s only in the picture so you know what the rating is.

      • British_Otaku

        It will likely be on the limited edition though, I made a post below talking about how other multilingual limited editions handled by Nintendo did the same thing. One Piece Unlimited Cruise SP and The Last Story are the two examples.

    • Max

      I wonder why they don’t just use a sticker.

  • Kornelious

    Usually, we get NA gets the same version as Europe….usually….IT MUST!
    Also it says Bravely Default Game Card. I hope we get the actual case with the CE.

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

    Ok the original soundtrack CD…is it the full one or just a selection?

    • 하세요

      Judging by just about every previous “bonus OST” I’ve ever gotten in pre-orders/special editions of games, it’s just a selection.

    • British_Otaku

      Almost definitely a selection, Senran Kagura games have given the whole soundtrack and more for free but they weren’t selling the soundtrack separately.

      Here, they sold a soundtrack for the first version of the game last year (http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=SQEX-10333 ) and will probably do it again if they have some new tracks, Drama CDs or remixes.

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

        Can’t say much considering Square Enix did provide the full soundtrack for the crystal edition of XIII-2 and that had a entirely different cover. Also don’t think they would go out their way to deceive the audience by writing Original Soundtrack CD rather than Selected Soundtrack. I’m not really hoping for anything though since I already own the soundtrack. All I’m hoping for is that I don’t have to pay a fortune for it.

        • British_Otaku

          That sounds very generous and that’s from Square Enix as well. We’ll see what we get here, I suppose the OST probably has less value to them when it’s already been selling as well as it can for a year in the core market, maybe we will get the whole package AND an awesome figure.

          I’m definitely not preordering on the basis of the soundtrack though.

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

            Me neither! the packaging, statue, game and artbook got me entice.

  • Rinne111

    I just checked Shop.to.net and game.co.uk but still no collectors edition just the regular one:( I am so tempted to buy even though my poor wallet is gonna suffer:(

  • Max

    I wonder why nothing has been announced a about a limited edition for the japanese release of for the sequel?
    I hope at least we get to purchase the figure and AR cards separately.

  • Herok♞

    If it comes to the us this is on to buy LE list

  • Neophoton

    Coming from someone who has the Japanese one… I’m a bit jealous of Europals for this one.

    Most I can do is hope for someone to put the goods on eBay (and not at an absurd price…) while waiting for NA to hopefully give a feasible collector’s edition.

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

      If you know someone in the UK or wherever you can always ask them to buy it for you…if you really want it :/

      • Neophoton

        Sadly, I do not. :’( I’ll just quietly hope someone puts up the goods for reasonable prices and not go crazy like they did with the Japanese CE (the “norm” on eBay was $700+).

  • Hououin91

    Waiting for the price… but if it’s not absurd I will so get this one.

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

      £59.99 at most I say.

      • Hououin91

        Good price then. ~70€ is how much a 360/ps3 game costs in Portugal…

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

          Consider tax differences.

          • Hououin91

            I know, I was just saying that it is easy for me to give 70 euros for a deluxe edition considering I paid 70-75 in the past for a normal one. (now I just import from uk, it’s a lot cheaper)

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

            ohh ok

          • Hououin91

            99.99£ (more 20£ of ports) crazy price.. no way I’m getting it :(

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

            it’s £79.99 now

  • Anime10121

    Damn! They changed the cover art /case. :(

    Oh well still a day one buy! Especially if dat LE comes to the US!

    • kuroneko0509

      They’re using the JP version of Bravely Default: For the Sequel cover art

  • Lumi

    AR cards? what are they for?

    • British_Otaku

      The original game had AR cards as well, I could use them (as you can find the images online) for the demo, but never figured out of the use for them. Maybe, it’s minor content like costumes or being able to take photos of the characters in various circumstances.

      • Lumi

        Hmmm, maybe like the Nintendogs AR card thing. Probably they’ll sell it separately if it’s got a lot of content linked with it, since they want to have eshop sales as well.

    • Romored
  • fairysun

    Looks awesome.

  • Yuuki

    seemingly nintendo of germany offers that to all retailer

    • British_Otaku

      Given that it is basically a German copy, with more paper work and goodies, that isn’t surprising.

  • Thrasher429

    Come to Australia as well damnit. I need this so bad.

  • Strongarm Thunderbeard

    NoA, please don’t be NoA about this one.

  • ffboi7

    Bring this stateside :D

  • Masa

    Europe getting some love lately, about time too as we normally get screwed over when it comes to rpgs.

  • James Enk

    in EU can i find this outside of the UK?

    • D-Omen

      Yes, if you check the mainland EU official Nintendo sites, they’ve put translated pics of the limited edition on their twitters. :-)

    • British_Otaku

      ShopTo will have international shipping according to Kaishou above.
      Link: https://secure.shopto.net/help/deliveryshipping

      Otherwise, it seems to be a Europe wide collector’s edition based on all of the languages supported and the USK rating on the box. If you are in Germany, there is a 100% chance you can find it somewhere, otherwise, you may have to look around your online and retail options.

      What country are you in? Not that I know game stores outside the UK, United States, Canada or Australia.

      • James Enk

        cy and i don’t think i can find it here so i will have to order it from the uk

  • Ninastars

    Does the site it’s exclusive to ship elsewhere in EU or is it just an UK only site or something? The annoying thing about limited edition is that sometimes not all countries in Europe get them.

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

    :D Shopto~ I got £8 in credit~ yeyeyeyeeee

  • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

    Oooh…sounds tempting.

  • Raltrios

    Oh gods. I…I must have this. Please bring this to Canada, too! :3

    • J_Joestar

      yes, would love a NA release of this

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

      thank you, gonna pre-order as soon as it becomes available.

  • artemisthemp

    I waiting on Shopto.net to put it up for Pre order

  • SMT

    It feels good to ACTUALLY be excited about a Square-Enix title!

  • http://twitter.com/puchixseda puchinri

    GAHH! Please give us this or something worth the same value here! ;A;
    It all looks so wonderful, I need it. TTuTT

  • Luis Camargo

    Region Lock WHY ? WHY ? WHY ?

    I wanted this so bad T.T

    • British_Otaku

      You could buy all of the goodies separately (or find a mate in Europe who can help you out), expect a massively inflated price and play the copy which releases wherever you are.

  • James Williams

    So happy GAME don’t get this CE, hate that chain with a passion.

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

      They can be ok at times…just not all the time like shopto lol

      • James Williams

        Nah there pretty awful through and through, at least with it being on shopto i’ll even get it a few days early!

  • Max

    @BDFF_OFFICIAL: “For those jealous of the European Deluxe Edition, we’ll make it up to you.”

    • http://www.siliconera.com/ Ishaan

      I believe that might have been aimed at the Japanese audience.

  • http://radiantloki.blogspot.com/ Mark Dinh

    My lord… where is out CE? I WANT TO SEE WHAT OURS LOOKS LIKE!

  • http://strictlyapathy.comoj.com/ SoulArbiter

    I gotta have this! This is a wonderful package!

  • shadowind

    What I don’t get is why is this LE a bloody ShopTo exclusive considering there was a huge controversy lately involving them…

    http://www.shopto.net/news/44342/ShopTo-An-Apology

  • artemisthemp

    The Collector’s Editoon will cost £99.85 and that not even including shipping cost.

  • Tom

    Okay, I preodered it. I don’t have the money currently and 108 GBP is a bit high (postage included) but I have time to change my mind if I want to. Now all I need is a 3DS…
