To celebrate the launch of this mech-filled JRPG coming to the Wii U, Monolith Soft and Nintendo are launching a Special Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles X.

The Special Edition of Xenoblade Chronicles X is going to be what all the collectors and JRPG enthusiasts out there have been hoping for. At the suggested retail price of $89.99, you'll get a handful of goodies in one sleek package.

Here's what you get for purchasing Xenoblade Chronicles X's Special Edition:

  • The Xenoblade Chronicles X game
  • A book of concept art with more than 100 pages, featuring select art for the very first time
  • A unique USB drive modeled after the game’s “Lifehold Unit,” pre-loaded with a selection of 10 music tracks from the game’s memorable soundtrack
  • A limited-edition matted 5x7 art card of a painting done for the game by illustrator Takashi Kojo

I'm sorry, but paying an extra $30 for a flash drive with 10 songs on it, a card and an art book is a bit steep to me, even if it's a North American exclusive. Most collector's editions come with more content (a steelbook case at least) and usually aren't as expensive. Mind you, I'm a big Tetsuya Takahashi fan and loved Xenogears and the Xenosaga trilogy, but to each their own, right?

Xenoblade Chronicles X will launch on Dec. 4 for Wii U. You can now pre-order the Special Edition at participating retailers.
