Due to the incredible amount of demand for the long sold-out Ultimate Collector’s Edition of Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix is looking into producing more.
Revealed as part of the Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event last week, only 30,000 copies were available. Needless to say, that wasn’t nearly enough. Taking to Twitter (translation via Siliconera), the game’s director, Hajime Tabata, said:
“I’m truly grateful for those of you who checked out Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV.
“Things were as exciting as can be at the event, but I heard that those of you in Japan also got excited along with the long TV commercial. Again, the Platinum Demo has received a large number of downloads, and we truly thank you for that!
“And by the pre-orders for the Ultimate Collector’s Edition vanished in a flash, and we’ve received plenty of voices from those that weren’t able to acquire it. We are terribly sorry about that. At the moment, we’re continuing with internal coordination to see if we can somehow increase its production. We will make an announcement as soon as there’s any progress!
“Again, I’d like to let you know that we will follow protocol to handle what appears to be unusual orders that may seem like they were made for resale purposes. Once more, thank you for your continued support of Final Fantasy XV!”
Going for $269.99, the Ultimate Collector’s Edition includes two exclusive steelbooks, with disc versions of Final Fantasy XV, the Kingsglaive movie, the Brotherhood anime series, a special soundtrack, a 192-page artbook, a Noctis figurine, and multiple in-game items. At the Uncovered event, it was announced Final Fantasy XV will release September 30.
