Final Fantasy XIII-2: Special Edition Details Revealed

The direct sequel to the beautiful, but somewhat flawed Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2 doesn’t follow in particularly auspicious footsteps The only other direct sequel in the Final Fantasy franchise was Final Fantasy X-2, which many hardcore Final Fantasy fans found lacking.  Nevertheless, Square-Enix have revealed some information about the special editions of the upcoming game, including what extra goodies will be included in the package.

The “Limited Collector’s Edition” will come with “unique packaging” and will include the game, a Soundtrack CD with a limited selection of the music from the game, an artwork book “The Art of FINAL FANTASY XIII-2”, 6 collectible postcards and a High Definition Lenticular Art print of the character Lightning.  The “Crystal Edition” will include all of that, but with a 4-Disc Original Soundtrack containing all the music from the game as well as a “highly exclusive” T-Shirt, and will be packaged in a “presentation box”.

It all sounds quite snazzy, and the part of the press release which states that Final Fantasy XIII-2 will include “extraordinary level design encouraging exploration, a new battle system allowing players to command monsters and a variety of options that support multiple playthroughs” goes some way towards alleviating the problems critics had with the game’s predecessor and suggests that it might be worth checking out one of the special editions.  What do you guys think?
