Original Story: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2012/05/kingdom_hearts_3d_gets_mark_of_mastery_special_edition

Consider quantifying your excitement for Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance into financial form. What number would it be? Square Enix hopes some of you will have come up with the number $54.99, as that's what it's asking for the game's special edition.

The Mark of Mastery edition -- so far only announced for North America -- comes with five AR cards, a snap-on 3DS protector case and 12 art cards bearing images from the series. Oh, and you get the game too, of course.

It's out alongside the game on 31st July. If it stays exclusive to North America, it might take the sting out of the fact Europe gets the game 11 days sooner.Nintendo Life

My brother already pre-ordered this version about 2 weeks ago. I'm not going to buy the game, but I'll probably try the demo out.

I don't think that's worth $60 lol. I'll probably just get the game. I usually never get special editions though.

Is this edition limited to a certain number of copies? Any potential value for collectors?

Basically all you are paying for is the 3DS case and Special edition box, yeah its a poor Special edition, but hey it's a 10th anniversery of the franchise.

Does anybody else think it would be easier and cheaper to just find the AR images online after they come out?
