Unboxing of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Collector’s Edition

Well folks, it’s about that time. Time for what, you ask? If you said “time to play that Final Fantasy XV demo!” you’d be mostly correct, except that it’s still downloading. So instead, I’m going to take a bunch of pictures of the stuff that came with that download pamphlet.

And what came bundled with that demo is none other than the Final Fantasy Type-0 HD Collector’s Edition, a set that is surprisingly not exclusive to Square Enix’s store this time around (thankfully), though it still wound up being a tad scarce on account of its current lack of availability. FF Type-0 is a game that was originally released on the PSP in Japan, but sadly didn’t make its way to western shores until now. With that being said, let’s see what came included with this thing so I can get back to playing, yeah?

In case you were wondering, no, the strategy guide does not come bundled with the game. I did include it though for those that were interested to see what it looked like and also to use as a size comparison to the game box. As you can see, the outer box is about as big as a book.

The guide also comes with a nice looking piece of art, as you can see here. I got another shot of the back cover without the plastic covering it as well.

Here is all of the contents sprawled out. We’ll start with the steelbook case.

That looks damn fine. Seriously. I love the artwork on this thing.

Here are the contents of the steelbook. The two discs are the game and the soundtrack, and the little pamphlets are the manual (sorta), the track listing, and the download code for the FFXV demo.

The inside of the case looks pretty damn fine as well.

There’s actually a decent track selection here. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the music, so I’m quite ecstatic.

This is what I meant by the sorta manual comment.

The included art book is hardcover and contains a fair number of pages. Square Enix is getting better at this whole collector’s edition thing.

The manga was a nice touch. I look forward to reading that when I have a better idea of the characters and story.

Finally, we have the cards, which I suppose is appropriate on account of the character names. I flipped them all over so you can see the eidolons on each one.

This package will set you back about a Benjamin, if you can find one. Looking at the auction sites though, you may have to think about paying a premium unless a few extras start crawling out of the woodwork at the various retailers. It’s a good set overall and a definite step up from the ones Square Enix put together last year. The steelbook case looks great, I love that the soundtrack has more than five songs, and I’m definitely looking forward to reading that manga. I’m quite happy with my purchase and I hope you are too if you managed to pick one up. Anyways, thanks for checking out another one of my unboxings. Until next time!
