Available at the launch of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be a special Collector’s Edition which seems to includes the Deluxe Edition of the game, premium packaging, a case containing replicas of the six Infinity Stones (with LED effects), and four premium character dioramas of Mega Man X, Iron Man, Captain Marvel, and Chun-Li.

In addition to the aforementioned material, pre-ordering the Collector’s Edition will also get you the Evil Ryu and Warrior Thor costumes which come with pre-ordering the Standard Edition and the Command Mission X and Gladiator Hulk costumes from the Deluxe Edition.

Unfortunately, the Canadian version featured on EB Games’ website does not have a price, nor does it include the game (and likely doesn’t include the associated downloadable content), looking more like this:

Those outside the U.S. should check with your local retailer for price and contents.

Publisher: SEGA
Platforms: PlayStation 4
MSRP: $29.99 USD/$39.99 CDN/£29.99/€34.99
Retailers: Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, EB Games, GameStop, Video Games Plus,
Release Date: August 29th, 2017

section04_img01

Those who pre-order or get one of the limited number of first-run copies of Yakuza Kiwami, the “extreme” high definition remake of the original 2005 PlayStation 2 game Yakuza, will receive a SteelBook package for the game, as seen above. The front of the SteelBook cover depicts protagonist Kazuma Kiryu as he accompanies the mysterious orphan Haruka, while the back features the designs from Kiryu’s dragon and Nishikiyama’s koi tattoos.

You can learn more about Yakuza Kiwami at the game’s official website, or the greater series on the Yakuza Experience website. If you’re interested in the recently-released prequel to this game, you can find my review over on SEGA Nerds, where I come at the game from the perspective of someone who has never played an entry in the series before. I recommend dispelling all preconceived notions and giving it a look; you may be pleasantly surprised.
