Tales of Arise, Bandai Namco’s latest JRPG from their beloved ‘Tales’ series is back and ready for a next-get audience. While we can talk praises about how the game looks really gorgeous on the PlayStation 5 and how its fast-paced action RPG system being fluid and on-point, its best to read about our detailed review here. For this article though, its all about checking the collectors edition and asking… Is this worth shelling your hard-earned $200? (Short answer: YES)
For those who are still on the fence, let’s take a look at the physical components and find out!
Tales of Arise full game and Steelbook
A 64-page Artbook showcasing the game’s characters and lore. A nice addition to your coffee table book collection.
An exclusive 18cm diorama representing Alphen and Shionne
The diorama looks highly detailed and can act as a definitive centerpiece to your Tales collection. The only feedback I got from this was that the figure can prove to be a bit difficult to assemble because of the intricate parts.
The Collector’s Edition seems a tad-bit more expensive than your usual CE’s – with all the stuff you might find in similar bundles. But the aesthetics of it and the way they are presented (especially the box and the highly-detailed diorama) make every cent of your money worth it.
