You may have the option to get extra goodies this summer with your purchase.
XSEED Games is pursuing the release of both a standard edition and a limited edition version of The Last Story in North America this July. It's unknown how similar a limited edition package might be to what was previously made available in Europe, where the game hit shelves this past February. Nintendo, not XSEED, was the game's publisher in that market, and they released a bundle that contained a copy of the game, a steel book case, a soundtrack, and an art book.
Currently, many online retailers, such as Gamestop and Amazon, have The Last Story listed for a July 10 release. XSEED told NWR that they are aiming for a July release but do not have a concrete release date as of this time.
