Dark Souls Collector’s Edition Detailed

May 11, 2011Written by Josh Fernandes

When Demon’s Souls released back in late 2009, it was accompanied by a collector’s edition that included an art book, strategy guide, and the soundtrack to the game. It was a great bundle that included useful items for the consumer without having the useless trinkets that other collector’s editions sometimes have.¬†Dark Souls, the spiritual successor to Demon’s Souls, will be following in its predecessor’s footsteps.

Dark Souls will be getting a collector’s edition that is very similar to the one that was available for Demon’s Souls. It will include a¬†limited edition art book containing premium illustrations of characters and environments from the game, a mini-strategy guidebook, behind-the-scenes videos from the development studio detailing various stages of game design, and the game’s soundtrack for digital download. All of this will come in a stylish metal case. How much will all this extra content cost? Nothing! Yes, the collector’s edition will retail for $59.99, the same as the standard edition. Namco Bandai will also release tutorial videos about the combat system and other aspects of the game.

Dark Souls hits the PS3 this October.
