Amazon have the $49.99 Otomedius Excellent collector’s edition up for pre-order as well, and they’ve given away what it includes. Under “Product Features,” they mention:

 

  • Lovely characters to pilot through an expanded world. Choose from nine characters on-disc to battle through 8 all-new stages of thrilling shmup action!
  • Three?s company! Cozy up with a friend or two in local and online multiplayer and team up to obtain hard-to-get items!
  • Eye-popping Gallery mode. View your unlocked stills and graphics in a new Gallery that grows as you progress through the game.
  • Loads of appealing downloadable content. Sure to appeal to both Gradius and Otomedius fans, this content will be announced later!
  • Exclusive Special Edition. Includes 2-sided pillowcase, 64 page artbook and soundtrack disc featuring music from the Otomedius series.

 

So…a two-sided pillowcase, 64 page artbook and a soundtrack disc. Not too shabby at all. Amazon, like Gamestop, list Otomedius Excellent for a July 19th release.

 

A deep bow to Corey for the awesome tip!
