Final Fantasy XIII-2 collector’s edition coming to North America

By Stephany Nunneley, Thursday, 10 November 2011 15:34 GMT

Those who’ve been jealous over Europeans and their two flashy collector’s editions for Final Fantasy XIII-2 can now put any ill feelings aside, as North Americans are getting one as well.

The CE will be available in limited qualities through Amazon, Best Buy, and GameStop and each will also offer retailer-specific pre-order bonuses – but we’ll get to that in a minute.

With the CE, the packaging features lovely artwork from Yoshitaka Amano and inside you will find a 4-disc soundtrack, a 20-page art book featuring concept art, the game disc, and a manual. It is similar to the Crystal Edition on offer in Europe, only it’s missing the FFXIII-2 t-shirt, which you will likely be able to purchase on eBay at some point for $god.

The pre-order goodies mentioned above for each retailer are listed below.

Amazon – Exclusive boss battle.
Best Buy – A hardcover novella featuring a story tying together “the events of Final Fantasy XIII and XIII-2.”
GameStop – Alternate costume for Serah.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 releases January 31 in the US and February 3 in Europe for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Thanks, Shack.
