Default Emily The Strange Limited Edition available for pre-order at Amazon UK

This one seems to be gone under the radar, but Amazon.co.uk have listed*Emily The Strange Limited Edition. It's been listed under PQube who are the UK Publisher for games such as Blazblue and the recent Guility Gear XX.

In terms of details all there is at the moment is a picture, however it seems to include the following:
  • Branded T-Shirt ( images looks to indicate it's a female T-Shirt)
  • Branded Key Ring
  • Emily the Strange: dark Times novel
  • Emily the Rose Poster
  • Standard copy of the game ( NDS)
The price is quite steep at £89.99 and will be released on the 10th June 2011. It's not known at the moment if the contents will be in a single box or*individual*items*similar*to Balazble*Continuum*Shift Fan Edition.

A request for more information has been made from Pqube and will update as it comes*available.



You can Pre-order it here: Amazon UK PQube Emily the Strange Limited Edition

I*receive*an e-mail back from Pcube, this is what they say.

"The Limited Edition will have a reporters notepad ? image attached. I will get a press released sorted this week and include you in the mail out.

There will also be a Special Collector?s Edition ? contents to be confirmed, but again, I will make sure you are aware of the package as soon as it is confirmed."

Really? £90 for a DS CE? Outrageous! I agree, it had better be numbered and extremely limited, plus also come in special packaging for that price!

Which leads me to wonder - Will this come all specially packaged in a unique box, or is this just related merchandise which will be bundled into a shipping box alongside the standard game?


I don't quite understand where they get the £89.99 from, seeing as the hardback Dark Times book can be purchased separately from amazon for only £5.49:

The game itself is only £17.99:

Game + Book = £23.48

So you're telling me that a T shirt, keychain, and poster are worth £66.51 between them? Like fuck they are!

In my opinion, this set is at least £40-£45 too expensive for what is actually included, and the price of certain items separately.

Plus it is still unsure whether this is a legit CE or whether these are just related items bundled together with the game like that BlazBlue: Continuum Shift Fan Edition

I agree with Gemini on this one, the price is way out. I haven't heard anything from Kevin yet, but it's early in the morning.
