Microsoft Announces Final Fantasy XIII Limited Edition Bundle

February 11, 2010 – Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox 360 will be seeing a deluxe, limited edition bundle package heading to North America.

Microsoft’s retailer website, “Expertzone,” displayed a listing giving information about the bundle. The bundle will apparently include a limited edition console, two wireless controllers, a 250GB harddrive, all connection cables, and a copy of the game. Cost looks to be around $399 for the entire package (though there is no official word on pricing).

Square-Enix and Microsoft confirmed the North American bundle to IGN earlier today, stating it will be available on March 9 in limited quantities, and that special faceplates would also be available. The official word given to IGN states:

  • The Xbox 360 “FINAL FANTASY XIII” Special Edition Bundle includes a 250GB hard drive, two wireless controllers, exclusive downloadable avatar items and a standard-edition copy of the dramatic sequel in the multimillion-selling series. Xbox 360 is the only console outside of Japan to be bundled with the game, available in stores starting March 9, while supplies last. In addition, a very limited number of “FINAL FANTASY XIII” Limited Edition Faceplates have been created by designer Tetsuya Nomura. These faceplates are only available promotionally in fixed quantities across select retailers in Europe, North America, Australia, and New Zealand.

Square-Enix did release a special edition PlayStation 3 bundle, but was limited to Japan only. Final Fantasy fan boys will no doubt be excited about this limited edition package, which seems the most adventurous package to date for the franchise.
