For those of you who have been looking forward to Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Collector’s Edition, we have good news for you. The title can now be purchased as an exclusive via the Square Enix Online Store. Obviously, as a Collector’s Edition, this particular boxed set will offer a whole lot more than what you would normally expect, where it will sport a specific artwork for the collector box. Not only that, you will be able to peruse through an 80 page Hardcover Art Book that is awesome to look at, where it comes wrapped in a dust jacket while featuring legendary character designer Tetsuya Nomura’s original drawings.
Going through this Art Book would let you check out the retrospective aspect of the Final Fantasy XIII franchise, in addition to more character sketches and renderings, Lightning’s full range of customization, the world of Nova Chrysalia as well as its architecture, not to mention having a closer look at the bestiary within the game. The presence of a couple of full gatefolds would deliver an even more introspective look into Lightning Returns, while a Silver Embossed Pocket Watch reminds you that Lightning Returns would revolve around a 13 day countdown doomsday clock, so that you are reminded that you could better spend your time in front of the game than elsewhere.
