Dark Souls 3 Release Date, Two Collector's Editions Leaked by Retailer
The new Dark Souls may come in Collector's and Prestige editions, each with its own figurine.
The release date and two separate collector's editions for Dark Souls III appear to have been leaked by an online retailer listing.
Geekay Games has published listings (via Wario64) for two versions of Dark Souls III: the Collector edition and Prestige edition. Accompanying images on both pages reveal their contents, as well as a release date of April 12, 2016. That fits right into the April release window we'd previously been given.
The Collector edition comes with the game itself, a 25-cm (about 10-inch) red knight figurine, hardcover art book, cloth map, soundtrack, iron-on patches, metal case, and collector's box.
The Prestige edition includes many of the same things--the game, art book, cloth map, soundtrack, patches, and metal case. But in place of the red knight figurine, you instead get a 40-cm (about 16-inch) Lord of Cinder figurine and what looks like a different collector's box.
Being a Middle Eastern retailer, the prices listed for both versions are unlikely to line up with those you can expect to see in North America or Europe. The Collector edition costs 499 AED (about $136), while the Prestige edition costs 1,799 AED (about $490).
We've followed up with Bandai Namco to see if it will confirm any of these details. We'll report back with any information we receive.
