Hahahaha, so - I FINALLY GOT A HOLD OF THE TALES OF SYMPHONIA CHRONICLES COLLECTOR'S EDITION!! (double yay!!)
I'd been waiting for it for a while now and finally got my copy on Tuesday!!
It came with lots of extra goodies, including both Symphonia games, a steelbook case, four CD soundtrack, miniature art book with a free PS3 theme DLC, the novel ‘Successors of Hope’ (previously never released in English), and a set of five Chibi Kyun figures!
I actually haven't played the game since it came out ten years ago (OTL 8'D) and I never beat it, so I'm looking forward to getting the chance to play it again - and in HD to boot! Not to mention it's the international version, with bonus sidequests and content never released outside Japan before! I'm super excited!
The game itself aside, let's look at the extra goodies hehehe
The art book is okay, it doesn't have a lot of art in it, (not like the Xillia artbook - now THAT was how an artbook should be done) but it's pretty neat and has artwork for the main characters at least XD
Next is the steelbook case! Very high quality and adorable artwork on both the outside and inside of the case. No scratches will be on my disc, thank you very much XD
After that, we have the Four-Disc Soundtrack - it's actually really cool. for once NA got something more than EU's bonuses. The EU edition only had two discs, while the NA version has four. The total amount of songs on all four discs is about HALF of the total OSTs for both games!! We get A TON OF MUSIC, THE AMOUNT OF MUSIC ON THESE DISCS IS CRAZY. It goes beyond the normal, "sample" CDs that normally come with special editions like this, This is Half of the total OSTs for the games. about 100 songs in total.
Next is the "Successors of Hope" novel. It was previously never published outside Japan, so this is the first chance English speakers have had to read it, and it acts as an "in between" to the two games.
and finally, we get to the best part, The set of five Chibi Kyun figures!! They're so cute and very well crafted! Each figure is 2.5 inches tall and has a very good amount of detail. Very high quality and utterly adorable XD
annnnnnnnnd that's it for me (well, as far as games go) as always, thanks for reading if you got this far XD
