Peordered it right after I saw this. Now I just hope I can finish the series before it comes out. I was making decent progress, but then Diablo III came out... :'(

If you preordered it at GameStop, they'll gladly move over the funds you already have on the regular copy to the special edition. Otherwise, if you ordered it online, you won't be charged until it ships, so you should be able to cancel your order and order this.

So it is confirmed you can get this edition in gamestops in North America? I checked their website and I only see the standard edition on there. Usually they're pretty quick to add these things but maybe this is just an exception.

Considering this is called a "Mark of Mastery" Edition, I find the lack of some sort of included Keyblade-related trinket perplexing.  Maybe that'll be one of the AR Cards.

Will the Mark of Mastery edition be available to buy in-stores on/after July 31, or is it only online? If it isn't, I think I'll have a good cry because it's sold out on all websites...
