Batman: Arkham Knight Collector’s Editions Will Beat Up Your Wallet
With today's news of a June release date for Rocksteady's final Batman adventure comes word of two deluxe editions for the game, both of which will test your financial stability.
The first is the Limited Edition of Batman: Arkham Knight, priced at $99.99 and pictured below. This version comes with a steelbook case for the game disc, an art book, a limited edition Arkham Knight comic book, three character skins based on the New 52 line of comics, and a "memorial statue" of Batman whatever that means. Should we be preparing for a funeral Rocksteady? Is that what you're telling us?
The Batmobile Edition, pictured below, is essentially the same as the Limited Edition, but instead of a Batman statue buyers will receive a replica Batmobile right from the game. The statue is billed as "fully transformable" which we assume means that the iconic Bat-car will change between the forms it takes in the game, allowing you to position it on your mantle however you wish. Oh, and this version will run you a cool $199.99 andit's exclusive to the console versions, so prepare to pony up for the transforming car... but if you're playing on PC you won't have to worry about it.
That $200 price tag is pretty steep, but a transforming replica of the Batmobile might be too good to pass up. We'll have some time to think about it though, as Batman Arkham Knight launches June 2 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
