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.
