Dark Souls Trilogy Box set is exactly as expensive as it looks
Bandai Namco has revealed an amazing box set for all three Dark Souls games, but it’s only for Japan and it costs the equivalent of £330.
Dark Souls rewards and encourages obsession, and it’s had plenty of super expensive merchandise before now. But this new Trilogy box set really is something else.
It’s currently only scheduled for Japan, and only for the PlayStation 4, but includes a set of bookends; a 1,000 page B6-size (so 12.5 x 17.6cm) encyclopaedia of equipment, items, and magic; 10 art prints, including some all-new pieces of artwork; and two soundtrack CDs for each game.
The games included are the recently announced Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin, and Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades Edition.
In other words, all the games and all the DLC that has ever been released for them.
There’s no Xbox One version because the format is irrelevant in Japan, but there’s no reason why the box set couldn’t also be released for Microsoft’s console, or the PC, if it’s brought to the West.
Speaking of the PC, Bandai Namco has clarified that if you already own the Prepare to Die Edition of the first Dark Souls on Steam then you’ll be able to get Dark Souls Remastered for 50% off.
Dark Souls Remastered will be released in the West on May 25, while the Dark Souls Trilogy Box will release a day earlier in Japan. Here’s the official product page if you want to try and import it.
