Square Enix probably knew its fans were going to go wild for it, as they’re releasing a couple special edition bundles and items alongside the regular, bare-bones edition.
First off, there’s the big one, which isn’t necessarily a special version of the game, but it comes bundled with the new game and supposedly every previous game in the series: a specially-themed Kingdom Hearts 3 PlayStation 4 Pro. Both the console and controller feature an intricate design that includes keyblades, Mickeys, crowns, and hearts. There hasn’t been a price announcement yet, but it will be released on the same day as Kingdom Hearts 3. The bundle of all the previous games will also be available sans the special edition console for $99.99.
Then there’s the $79.99 deluxe edition. This edition comes with a steelbook case that features keyblades, Mickeys, crowns, and hearts against a black backdrop, a collectible pin of Sora, and an artbook. This set is available for both Xbox and PlayStation editions of the game.
And then there’s the edition that contains everything in the deluxe edition and then some. That’s the Deluxe Edition + Bring Arts figures. The “then some” are three figures of Sora, Donald, and Goofy in their Toy Story world forms. This one is for you true diehard fans out there–it comes out to $229.99 before taxes! This edition is available for both PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game. As of right now, it seems like the only place to preorder this edition is from Square Enix’s site.
All versions of the game and the limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro will be available starting on January 29, 2019. All game bundles will be released for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.
