I made sure to pre-order this since we all know that it will cost extremely high amounts once NISAmerica runs out. I wanted to wait until I beat the game to show this unboxing (and then I got lazy as well, so…). Some of the pictures are partial spoilers so be warned. Anyway, this is the lovely packaging it came in.
The first box comes with some pretty cool stuff that will only be cool if you have played the game. The piece on the left is on Kurokuma’s tie and the pin on the right is the pin that the Warriors of Hope wear.
This is the main box. Inside we have:
An artbook (that was as much as I was willing to bend it XD). The artbook has character profiles of the major characters and CG’s in it. The profiles have sketches as well and descriptions. For a small artbook, it did have a lot of interesting things in it. However, the CG’s are pretty spoilerific, so be prepared if you look at it before you beat the game.
2. Let’s Play with Monokuma
3. Ultra? Despair? Girls?
4. Cute Girl’s Battlefield
5. Wonderful Dead 001
6. Warriors of Hope
7. Genocide’s Fever Time
8. It’s a Monokuma World
9. Ultra Despair Girls
10. Ultra Delusional Girls
11. We Cannot Change the World
12. It’s a Kid’s World
14. Crying for the Love in Hell
15. The Way We Live
It includes the Monokuma kid’s song on it, which I thought was pretty surprising since the song is completely Japanese. Other than that, it has songs that are played often, primarily songs when the Warriors of Hope are near by.
And lastly, it came with Kurokuma’s tie and eye patch in a separate white box inside the main box. The tie is actual tie size so you could wear it as a tie.
Would I recommend this limited edition over the regular? Yes, especially right now. Some people seem to be selling this pretty cheaply as of right now, but that will not last forever. Unlike the first game’s limited edition (that I do not have), this limited edition is actually worth the price if you are a fan. The game is $40, plus a $15-$20 CD, an artbook worth maybe $15, and the tie, eye path, pin, and tie attachment, are worth a decent amount, making the limited edition actually seems like a pretty good value. The Japanese edition is a lot more expensive, as of now, but has worse things included with it, in my opinion, so, yes, I would recommend getting this limited edition.
