Namco & Bandai, Please make a super deluxe super big awesome collectors edition of Dark Souls II and put everything great in it that you can!! I'm willing to pay up to $250 for it. I want everything: a big art book, a big strategy guide, music CD, behind the scenes DVD, big fancy box, sculptures of items from the game, rings, medallions, and anything really cool you can think of. I want to go all out for DS2 and buy everything you make for it.
I would love to see a statue of an elite knight facing off against a dragon. Or a statue of the knight from the trailer as he's on his knees with 6 arrows sticking out of him.
Something that would go perfect on a book shelf, or even sculptures of a couple bosses that could serve as decor or even book stoppers. I'm all about the physical stuff, and think that with the huge community behind Demon's/Dark Souls they could sell it no problem.
The collector's edition looks good. I'm a big fan of the series in general, and though I'm not usually one to splurge on figurines I may go for this.
However, keep in mind that the contents may change. I don't know how many people remember the (free) collector's edition of Dark Souls that everyone who preordered got - but that showed physical items in pictures that turned out to be download only in reality. Which is more than a little upsetting.
Probably safe from a download-only cloth map though.
Yeah, I remember that. Soundtrack was downloaded, and the strategy guide was a pdf and only had tips for the first two levels and then they told you to buy the full strategy guide when it was released. That was a very poor move on their part. At least the artbook was physical though.
