Final Fantasy XIII-2 Collector's Edition Packs Some Gorgeous Art

ffxiii-2-ce.jpg
Not enough RPGs on your mind this week? Good! Because Square-Enix just announced a collector's bundle for Final Fantasy XIII-2, and it looks like a doozy of a deal, designed to draw in FF-fans who remember what the series is supposed to be about. By that, of course, I mean the otherworldly concept art and extensive OSTs worth shelling out import fees to acquire!

The collector's edition you see here will come with an exclusive cover as well as a 20-page artbook, featuring concept and character art by the legendary Yoshitaka Amano. If that's not enough, you also get a four-CD soundtrack to fill your pretty little ears while you browse said artwork. (Now how much would you pay?)

If you said 'only $20 more than the regular edition,' then your budget will be delighted to find that's exactly how much this edition will cost. Not too shabby, considering some of us ponied up almost $80 just for Square soundtracks back in the import-only, pre-MP3 days. (And we liked it, too!)

On a grander note, it's nice to see that the concept of a reasonably-priced Collector's Edition is coming back in style next year. 2011's releases saw pricey packs upwards of $150 for something as simple as a model TR0N bike or a giant dragon statue. Between FFXIII-2 and Mass Effect 3, the goodie boxes of the future are looking like a much better value.

No word yet on whether Square-Enix wants to put in the oft-underrated Dress Sphere system back in their latest game-ending-in-2.
