A few months ago, I posted a mini review of Pandora's Tower
on the c-blogs and, while I spoke about various things about the game itself, I also spoke of a special item which was given to buyers of all three titles. Something unique to Europe. Sadly, Nintendo didn't like being straightforward so buyers ended up having to wait until October before we got the promised item and, since it's not often Europe gets to 1-up the guys over the other side of the pond, I just felt that I had to do a little gloat post!! It's a bit late, seeing as the item arrived at the beginning of the month but... meh.
And this is what you get if you bought all 3 games!
Yup! A box!!! And inside said box is the real prize.
That's it! A commemorative coin set. One for each game!
On one side, you get the title printed out as they appeared on the game boxes and on the other side...
You get an icon that represents the game. For Xenoblade, you get the kanji which appears whenever the monado is fully charged, the last story gets the flame which gives Zael his power and Pandora gets the curse mark.
I have to say, the coins are really well made and have a significant weight to them! They really didn't cut any corners when they made these! Were they worth the wait? Probably not, but they are still appreciated nonetheless and a very cool little item to add to my collection of gaming memorabilia.
But there's more!!
If UK gamers bought pandora's tower from HMV, you also got a little box to hold all 3 games together!
The Box also came with a small artbook
Nothing outstanding in there either. Just some bits of art from each of the 3 games. Some may be familiar to you all.
Nothing to really write home about but a nice touch in any case. The high point is definitely the coin set. You Yanks will be happy for us eternally suffering brits, right? Afterall, it's not often we get to gloat about getting something you guys don't, right? It's usually the other way around!!
