As there has been issue with preorders via Limited Run Games in the past, as evidenced by what occurred with Wonder Boy and Night Trap, they are going to change how they handle the process for Ys Origin. The standard edition will be manufactured to order- they will have the number of copies made that have been ordered. After 24 hours, the ordering window will close- and that number is what will be released.
However, the Collector’s Edition lives up to its name and each platform will only have 3,000 copies available for preorder.
Each collector’s edition set will contain:
- Standard edition physical Ys Origin game with reversible cover art. Region free.
- 18 x 24-inch fold-out poster
- 72-page full-color English artbook featuring character profiles and illustrations, opening movie art, and an illustration gallery.
- A beautiful shrinkwrapped 7.75″ x 9.5″ x 1.75″ big box featuring spot UV and embossing.
All copies will include the English, Japanese, French, Italian, German, and Spanish text for the game, and the Collector’s Edition will be in bubble wrap and shipped in a carefully packaged box.
On Friday, Aug 25th 2017, the preorders for both editions go live at 10am Eastern Time. A second batch for the Collector’s Edition will go live at 6pm Eastern. Limited Run Games has also made the times available to be added to your calendar from their blog post about the release.
