Introduction

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. Zero marketing. The title (or rather, the entire game series) has a devoted fan base. From what I’ve been able to read, the whole thing looks really interesting. A review of the game will certainly appear as soon as I finish it. I have read that there is more than 100 hours of content. Some time will probably pass before I make a review.

Record of Agarest War Limited Edition (Nintendo Switch, 2023)

The size of the box is quite small. This is well illustrated by one of the photos, where you can see the game itself placed in the special edition packaging. What is inside?

  • Game box
  • Acrylic figurine
  • Set of postcard-sized cards depicting the heroines
  • Artbook
  • CD with selected songs from the soundtrack

Below, sequentially, what is on each layer inside the box.

Packaging

The box from the front looks aesthetically pleasing. The printing is saturated with colors, the design of the front art is satisfying to look at.

Game box

The cartridge box is located under the first layer, where the CD and carefully foiled individual parts of the acrylic figure are located.

Acrylic figurine / stand

Acrylic figure, sometimes called an acrylic stand. In promotional photos, it looked much larger. In reality, its height is about half of a standard Nintendo Switch game box. Tiny, yet looks great.

Cards with pictures of the game’s heroines

A set of twelve cards with the game’s heroines is located directly under the center cardboard part of the contents. They are roughly the format of postcards. Printing quality satisfactory.

Audio CD with selected songs from the soundtrack

I will be honest and say that I experienced quite a big disappointment here. With such a price of the special edition (which is on top of the remaster), a full soundtrack should have been included. Unfortunately, there was room here for only 26 tracks. To make matters worse, the cover inside is not a booklet. The back of the CD box doesn’t even have any artwork, which is (to put it gently) a complete blunder.

Artbook

The artbook depicts probably all of the game’s most important characters, as well as some illustrations that are (I think) promotional materials. There’s also room for some fanservice, but that’s basically it. There are no drawings of locations, weapons or anything else. The size doesn’t blow you away either, but that could have been guessed from the size of the special edition box.

Record of Agarest War Limited Edition (Nintendo Switch, 2023) – summary

The price seems fair to the content. The only pity is how the publishers approached the soundtrack and the overall size of the whole thing. An A4-sized artbook would have looked much better. I assume that the print run of this collectible will be outstandingly small, so this set may gain in value quite a bit in the near future.

A full review of the game will appear when I complete it.

GrimGrimoire OnceMore Collector’s Edition (Vanillaware, 2022)

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.

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.

New Love Plus+ 3DS LL Nene Deluxe Set (Konami 2014)

The focus of the entry is something that can be called the Holy Grail. It is a limited edition Nintendo 3DS console with design from the game New Love Plus+ available exclusively in Japan.

Seifuku Kanojo – Himari Hatsukoi BOX (Entergram, 2024)

Seifuku Kanojo is the latest visual novel game by the well knows studio Entergram, taking the form of a dating sim and diverging from the traditional linear narrative of visual novels, even those with multiple endings. The moment I caught a glimpse of its first promotional materials, I was convinced it was going to be an immediate purchase. A few months later, I noticed that collector's editions would be available.
