I had never heard of this game before. It was originally released for the PlayStation 3 console, and later also for other platforms. The version for Nintendo Switch is a remaster. I only came across it because I accidentally noticed a tweet about the collector’s edition shared by one of the users I follow.

The size of the box is quite large, but no larger than the Xenoblade game collectibles I reviewed earlier in the original Japanese versions. But what is inside?
Xenoblade 3 Collector’s Edition (Nintendo Switch, 2022)
In this case, Nintendo handled the collector’s edition a bit strangely. Its release was three months after the release of the standard version of the game. Fortunately, it was made possible to purchase the version without the game for those who already have it in their collection. I’m talking here strictly about the original Japanese version. In the West, not even a release date has been announced yet. However, for me, as a collector, the original version has much more value. Among other things, this is because the artbook uses the original names instead of the made-up ones from the crappy English dubbing.

A new JRPG game called Trinity Trigger, heavily inspired by 90s classics such as Seiken Densetsu, was recently released. It was developed by Three Rings studio and published by FuRyu. The action takes place in a universe where the God of Order fights the God of Chaos for power. Gameplay can be seen here. The Japanese branch of Amazon and the GAMECITY website have prepared an interesting collector’s version, which I will present in this post.

July 28 of this year a remastered version of a fairly little-known RTS game from Vanillaware – GrimGrimoire OnceMore Collector’s Edition was released, in which we play a character stuck in a time loop – Lillet. I had never been exposed to this title, and Vanillaware makes very unique games, so I decided to buy the collector’s version. The game was released exclusively in Japanese. You can check out the gameplay itself here, where the demo version is played.
