The Tekken Tag Tournament 2 CE is up for pre-order at GAME now. It's an exclusive too so you can't get it anywhere else. I ordered mine yesterday as I'm a Tekken obsessive and this set has a lot of nice stuff in it for roughly a tenner more than the standard version's full RRP.

With all the costumes usually in a DOA game I'd have been surprised if there wasn't DLC for it! I'm doubting they'll be as generous as the DOA Dimensions DLC for the 3DS which was free. Still, I believe Tecmo have stated that there won't be any DLC characters so that's something.

At least its still a treat for those of us who DONT purchase the DOA DLC outfits, as we can still see the jubblies online versus with those who do have them :)

I was interested in this when I first heard about it on another website but now I'm just annoyed that the bonus stuff has been broken up amongst different retailers. Really hate it when they do this. Wonder who'll get the stuff for Europe then? Gamestop don't have UK stores do they?

Is it too much to hope for everything united in one single CE? Probably.

Nah, the CE at best will only get a few of the costumes and then they'll be released as paid dlc down the line I bet. Gamestop is online only in the UK so chances are they'll get the USA Gamestop pre order DLC?

I was hoping somebody more mainstream like GAME or Play.com would get something. Never even heard of Amazon getting exclusive content before :?

I just wish there was the one CE for everybody that included everything. Breaking stuff up between retailers is extremely annoying for the customer that wants the lot and just another trick to squeeze more money of them as they then have to look to DLC to get the bits they missed out on.

Now THIS is a LE I must own!

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2012- ... -announced
A lavish special edition of bewitching PlayStation 3 RPG Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is on its way, publisher Namco Bandai has announced.

Dubbed Wizard's Edition, it includes a 300+ page hardback copy of the spellbook that protagonist Oliver uses in the game, a plush doll of companion character Drippy and exclusive Goldenmite and Golden Drongo DLC familiars.

Pre-order the set from participating retailers and you'll snag two further familiars exclusive to the Western release: Flutterby and Griffy.

How much will it cost? Namco isn't saying. Our guess: a lot.

The finished game, a collaboration between Dragon Quest 9 developer Level-5 and veteran Japanese animation outfit Studio Ghibli, is due out on these shores from 25th January 2013. Yep, that's a long wait - it originally launched in Japan in November last year.
