It is the Unboxing Time Tales of Berseria Europe Collector’s Edition everyone! We felt like as if it took a long time to finally touch this collection. Believe it or not, we waited for a year for this rare Collector’s Edition! We made the pre-order back in October 2016 and we got it at the end of January 2017. So, yea being one of the lucky 10.000 in Europe is quite something hehehe 😛 Well, without delaying anymore seconds, let’s unbox Tales of Berseria Europe Collector’s Edition now!
It all started with Namco Bandai’s announcement that they will only ship a very limited number of Collector’s Editions. 10.000 editions spread over europe, where 1500 of those were reserved for the UK. Luckily we were in time with our reservation and at first it seemed that we would get a bonus as well. However things would turn out differently when we picked up the game, but more about that later.
As you can see above, the box is not as our big hope. Our hope was to get a bigger figurine but they already showed the size of the figurines at the pre-order time. So again, it’s our wish that SOMEDAY Bandai Namco will make bigger figurines for future Tales of games.
Now, let’s get to the unboxing, shall we?
- Tales of Berseria PS4 Game
- 2 Chibi Kyun Chara Figures set (Velvet and Laphicet)
- 6 Metal Coins Set (Velvet, Laphicet and Rokurou)
- Starter Strategy Guide
- Softcover Artbook
- Exclusive Bienfu Steelcase/Metalcase
- Collector’s Edition Select Soundtrack
- all enclosed in a Collector’s Edition Box
Users who pre-order Tales of Berseria in Europe will get two packs of physical goods depending on availability, retailers, and country. The two bonuses include a set of six badges:
- 6 badges 35mm
- a 40 mm metal keychain
Comparing it to the US Collector’s Edition, priced at $149.99, the US version does not have the Bienfu steelcase and the metal coins, while the EU version does not have the novel and the 8-bit rubber straps. The US version also has the strategy guide and artbook combined in one book, while the EU version has them as separate books. Their overall Collector’s Edition boxes are also different in design. Personally we think there shouldn’t be a difference per region as it creates diversity. For example in this case we would have liked the 8-bit rubber straps.
