Star Ocean: The Last Hope gets a 360 Collector's Edition

You know that dirty trick game companies sometimes pull where they put out a game, and then a few months later they announce some collector's edition or enhanced version with extra stuff you didn't get in the copy you bought at release date? Well, Square-Enix just announced that Star Ocean: The Last Hope will be getting that exact treatment, and I have a feeling that hardcore Star Ocean fans are going to grumble but buy it anyway.

Here's what you get with the Collector's Edition, which is for Xbox 360:

  • Limited edition Star Ocean: The Last Hope Box: Unique 'digistack' packaging with dual gatefold, inside a special collector's sleeve.

  • Star Ocean Soundtrack Compilation CD:
    The Star Ocean Sound Best Collection showcases key themes from across the series specially chosen by the game creators and series fans.
  • Five Star Ocean: The Last Hope Character Cards: Collectable prints of lead characters from the game, using rare artwork not officially released in Europe and other PAL countries.

  • Brady Games Official Miniguide: 32 page game guide printed in full-colour, with extra character artwork, descriptions and walkthrough information - to help you on your journey through the universe.
  • Three Star Ocean: The Last Hope Game Discs
    Expansive galactic adventuring goes across three game discs, accompanied by full-colour play manual.

This edition is due out on June 5th, but pricing details are not available yet. Hey Square, this is nifty, but couldn't you have released it, oh I dunno, when the game launched?
