Gust Reveals Multiple Special/Limited Editions for Atelier Escha & Logy
Because why stop at just one limited edition package?
04.07.13 - 12:07 AM

Many Japanese companies (and fans) love their limited edition packages, and in true Working Designs-esque fashion, Gust and Tecmo Koei have grand plans for their upcoming PS3 RPG Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky. As detailed on the Gust Shop, Japanese players have several options to choose from. This gets a little tricky, so bear with me.

(The following translated version is credited to Gematsu)

Gust Shop Special Premium Strongest Package
Premium Box: 23,240 yen / Regular Edition: 20,090 yen
($238.26 USD / $205.97 USD)

  • Premium Package (see below)
  • Gust Shop Limited Edition "Recollection Archives"
  • Original Soundtrack

Gust Shop Special Premium Strongest Combo
Premium Box: 17,640 yen / Regular Edition: 14,490 yen
($180.85 USD / $148.55 USD)

  • Gust Shop Limited Edition "Recollection Archives"
  • Original Soundtrack

Gust Shop Special Premium Package
Premium Box: 17,150 yen / Regular Edition: 14,000 yen
($175.83 USD / $143.53 USD)

  • Premium Package (see below)
  • Gust Shop Limited Edition "Recollection Archives"

Gust Shop Special Combo
Premium Box: 11,550 yen / Regular Edition: 8,400 yen
($118.41 USD / $86.12 USD)

  • Gust Shop Limited Edition "Recollection Archives"

Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky

Featured in the above image is the Premium Package that a couple of these sets include, which features the following:

  • Deluxe Box
  • 32-Page Illustration Art Book
  • 4 Post Cards
  • 4 A4 Posters
  • Maxi Single CD
  • Serial Number Certificate
  • Exclusive PlayStation 3 Theme

So, with four distinct sets, two tiers of each, AND the fact that each one comes with first-run bonuses for early buyers, that gives us like, what, 700 possible combinations? (My math may be a little off)

I included prices in USD just for reference, though it goes without saying North America will not be seeing these sets if and when the game comes out here. But, hey, NISA and Tecmo Koei: I think many of us would pay a premium to get a simple art book and/or soundtrack though. Just a thought guys~

Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky releases in Japan on June 27th, and some of us (namely, myself and Atelier Ayesha reviewer Derek Heemsbergen) are hoping to hear news of an English release at E3 in June.
