The single is a part of Charice’s new album entitled Infinity which will be released on October 5th. To listen to the song, download it off iTunes or listen to it in the video below.
Square Enix has now formally unveiled the finalized Final Fantasy Type-0′s collector’s edition which became available for pre-order through their Japanese e-store a few months ago.
As you can see, it all comes bundled together in a very nice, clear, red packaging. What is included is; the game’s soundtrack, a postcard book, and a bonus DVD, along with the actual game of course.
Naturally, along with this, the game’s cover has also been revealed, and, going along with Final Fantasy tradition, the cover consists of the original Yoshitaka Amano artwork along with the game’s logo on a plain white background. It may not be flashy or new, but it does make a nice statement.
The game itself retails for around 7,700 yen, while the collector’s edition will run you 12,760 yen.
Thanks to forum member Ffamran mied Bunansa for pointing this out.
