The game has a collector's edition that only costs €100. That's insane.

What exactly are the AR features in this game? I hope it's pointless stuff.

100 € for a 3DS game? Yeah, thanks, but no thanks S-E. Even FFXIII SE versions weren't this damn expensive.

Here's what's inside:

1. Agnès figurine.
2. Artbook
3. Soundtrack CD.
4. 34 AR cards.

I couldn't find any information on what the AR cards will do, but I assume most of them will function as an art gallery you can toy around with. A few others might activate short CG movies or typically trashy Square-Enix minigames. Possibly item/equipment unlocks, but probably nothing exclusive or overpowered.

With no indications that any AR cards will be sold separately, it should be safe to assume that the AR feature is non-essential, although it can't be ruled out that there will be sidequests that can only be activated via AR cards.

If this turns out to be true, it would be a very dickish move by S-E. Not that they're not fond of those, they pratically thrive out of them, so it is to be expected someway.

The only thing I can see driving up the price that much is the figurine. Most CEs include Artbooks and Soundtracks and they're 10$/€ more than the regular edition, tops. Still, 50€ for a figurine that's of unknown quality/collectible value is ridiculous.

You are right, it's the figurine. It's common industry practice to charge ridiculous margins for such worthless pieces of plastic.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I like collecting figurines, just not in that insane amount of money. Heck that's what my Cloud + Fenrir motorbike cost me and that was one of the best built (quality-wise) figurines I've seen. 50€ for a random figurine...yeah S-E just going for a quick grab. Pathetic really

So are you and Leo-J still the best of friends?


He doesn't go on here much anymore I don't think.




I doesn't look like the RPG I've been waiting for but still looks good (the RPG I've been waiting for has exploration like Dragon Quest VIII and Xenoblade).

I'll definitely be picking up the special edition in February.

It's likely Square-Enix's Action Figure brand Play Art's Kai (which is what your Cloud+Fenrir) are pretty good figures that are around 60-90 USD, they make figures for their series, MGS, Assasins Creed, Batman, Cowboy Bebop etc. That's what Tomb Raider's Collectors included, at big price.

though it's definietely a cash grab, since that's what collectors edition and action figures are.

Though, I wish AR was included in something else, because I find those quite amusing.

As long as someone scans and uploads them to the net, just find the images and print them out.  I think I even read you can use the 3DS on the images directly from a iphone screen, as long as the screen is big enough to keep the card image the size of the actual card.

bahh never mind found out



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

Not too sure why this isnt called Final Fantasy somethign cause its pretty much Final Fantasy but ye seens like an awesome game.

 

Edit: Played the demo, this is totaly Final Fantasy 4 Heroes of Light 2 with a fancy title. Since I loved 4 Heroes of Light I liked the demo quite a bit.
