Square Enix confirms it will print more of its Final Fantasy XV Collector's Edition
I must admit, I scoffed at the original "limited" run of Square Enix's Final Fantasy XV Collector's Edition, which numbered at 30,000 units. Shows what I know, though, because preorders on this special edition sold out almost instantly, prompting a response from FFXV director Hajime Tabata that the company would be looking into the feasibility of printing additional units.
Turns out, it was indeed feasible. Square Enix announced in a livestream this morning that it would be printing additional copies of the Final Fantasy XV Collector's Edition, which includes a posable action figure, an artbook, a copy of the Kingsglaive computer animated movie and in-game goodies. The one caveat: this second printing may not ship alongside the first run Collector's Editions on the game's international launch date, September 30th.
To be clear, this is a good problem to have. Not for customers, I mean, at least those who feel very particularly about getting a game right on its release day -- but it's good news for Square Enix, who after all need to sell a real boatload of copies in order to break even on Final Fantasy XV's 10 year development. We're talking 10 million copies kind of a boatload. So yeah, seeing high demand like this is a good sign. What if you spent all that Audi money on your expensive roadtrip game and nobody wanted it?
