A good many in Final Fantasy’s fanbase are still feeling jilted after they were unable to snag one of the highly coveted Final Fantasy XV Ultimate Collector’s Editions. Between scalpers looking to make a buck and fans who genuinely wanted one, Square Enix underestimated their demand and promised to look into making more.
Great news! If you missed out, you’ll be given a second chance, and you even have a date to start pre-ordering on. Mark your calendars for May 23, and you might be one of the lucky buyers who picks up on of the 10,000 that are being made available that day.
This second shipment brings the grand total to 40,000 of these collector’s editions worldwide.
We have only been able to produce 10,000 more UCEs due to the time it takes to create each individual Noctis Play Arts Kai figure because they are so detailed, and to confirm, this is the final batch of UCEs we will produce.
We cannot guarantee that this new batch of 10,000 UCEs will arrive on time for the launch of Final Fantasy XV on 30th of September 2016. But rest assured we are trying our absolute hardest to get them to fans in time. We will of course provide updates on this closer to the time of release as we know how important it is for you guys to have the game as early as possible.
