As was the case with the original release of the title, the Japanese box art features beautiful artwork… while North American audiences are treated to a CG image that while not terrible, fails to reach the same level as the artwork cover.
Additionally, a Collector’s Edition was announced for the PlayStation 4 version which includes everything from the previous physical Collector’s Edition with the added bonus of the Wind-up Moogle minion and the Fat Chocobo Mount.
You can see more information on the Collector’s Edition after the break!
