Run and hide all you casual gamers, Dark Souls 2 is on the horizon and it’s certainly not got any easier than its predecessors, Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls. Since the first game was released, the franchise has become well loved by gamers who want a real challenge and are tired of being molly coddled by the much easier games we have nowadays.
Collectors editions of games are usually pretty standard. You’ll get an art book. some bonus DLC, the soundtrack, and maybe a nice little statue or figure to put on your shelf. The Japanese collectors edition has decided to go a little further…by giving you a set of miniature replica weapons found in the game.
For a mere 15,980 yen ($160 or £97.50), Japanese fans can purchase the collectors edition which comes with replica weapons and items that the player will come across in the game. This edition will also include the soundtrack to the game, a map, and a 100-page art book. Unfortunately the North American and European collectors edition will not include the replicas but will include a 12″ statue.
Dark Souls 2 is due for release on March 11th in North America, March 13th in Japan and March 14th in Europe. The game will be available to play on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
