Update: Uploaded the NA version of the video, in it we can see the differences with the European release, which are.
- NA version OST is 4 disc in normal format, while the EU version is 2 disc mp3 format.
- Apparently the EU version doesn't include the Steelbook case.
- Also I can't see the packaging for the soundtracks in the EU version.
All CE boxes come with a serial number, as I mentioned in the article, there are only 18,000 NA versiones made, and only 10,000 EU version, so you can get one with a number in between depending on the version you're getting
Here's the EU version video
Bandai Namco has uploaded (via twitter) a video showing an unboxing of the Tales of Symphonia Chronicles Collector's Edition
The package comes with the following:
- Limited edition packaging with exclusive artwork from Japanese animation studio, ufotable
- TALES OF SYMPHONIA CHRONICLES software (Tales of Symphonia + Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World)
- SteelBook case
- Set of five Chibi Kyun Chara figures
- 4-disc CD soundtrack
- TALES OF SYMPHONIA: Successors of Hope hardcover novel (in English)
- Art booklet with PS3 custom theme download code (I think this is exclusive to the US version)
The game will be available on February 25, 2014 in NA and February 28, 2014 in Europe.
The collector's edition was initially limited to 15,000 units but the number was pushed to 18,000 to accommodate the overwhelming existing pre-order demand by fans. Apparently for Europe the number was limited to 10,000
Also, Pre-orders for the Digital Version (Yes, the Digital Version) are now available on the PlayStation Store $39.99 in the US and £25 for Europe. Pre-ordering the game will get you a PS3 custom theme.
