Nintendo have announced that Xenoblade Chronicles X for the Wii U will be getting a Collectors Edition release along with the launch of the standard game on December 4th in North America (released in Japan earlier in the year).
The Collectors Edition, which costs $90, comes with a cool looking Xenoblade themed USB stick with 10 songs from the soundtrack on it, which I quite like considering few use CD’s much anymore.
Special Edition includes:
- The Xenoblade Chronicles X game
- A gorgeous book of concept art with more than 100 pages, featuring select art for the very first time
- A unique USB drive modeled after the game’s “Lifehold Unit,” pre-loaded with a selection of 10 music tracks from the game’s memorable soundtrack
- A limited-edition matted 5×7 art card of a painting done for the game by illustrator Takashi Kojo
This is fairly different from the European Collectors Edition, which comes packed with the game, an artbook, the map, a double-sided poster and a Steelbook. European players can also get a Wii U bundle with Xenoblade included. Whether or not the US will also be getting some kind of Wii U bundle with the game is unknown.
Looking forward to Xenoblade Chronicles X? Would you in the US prefer to have the option of a bundle? Let us know in the comments!
