If this goes up on Amazon, I'd like to just get it there. No way I'm bothering with the Namco Digital River store again.

Preorder now to be disappointed later when they sell your preorder to someone else :)

Please, pre-order gods, be available at more than the Namco store or Gamestop. Amazon would be lovely, please.

I hope it's available through amazon or gamestop. I'd rather not have to order through NB's site.

Speaking of the Namco store, I had the Wizards edition of Ni No Kuni in my cart and it said it was in stock and ready to ship so I just placed an order for the heck of it. I wonder if I'll actually get one.

gamestop is a sure bet , since they actually carry these niche games.

Not sure how I feel about these extras... the figure (though it is probably a statue) looks nice but the selections CD and tiny artbook are kinda weak. The $100 pricetag isn't unusual but it's not the most tempting price either.

Still, if Amazon or GS has it, I'll be interested.

Based on the fact it mentions “participating retailers”, it sounds like it won't just be a Namco Store exclusive this time around (betting Amazon &/or GameStop at the least). Sounds like they heard the complaints from when Ni no Kuni's LE wasn't available anywhere else.

Gonna have to decide on this later. For $40 more, that's a rather nice figurine (I'm not one for buying those, but when they're pre-order or Limited/Collector's Edition bonuses, count me in), plus the 100-page artbook & CD (wonder how many tracks are on it) are nice additions as well. Really should get back to Tales of Vesperia someday, though. I'll give it some consideration, though I should probably beat Vesperia first (not to mention I wanna get Graces f).

I'm sure Gamestop and Amazon will, I agree.

Play Canada is a sure bet for about 700.

Newegg 50/50.

I think BB and Walmart, etc are very iffy.

I'll be getting it when they start taking pre-orders. The CE isn't in their system yet. The standard is, but they don't even have a release date on their website yet, which is weird. Usually release dates get into their system right away. Like an hour after official announcement. It's been a day or so since the release date.

Was sold at "Tales of"

Anyway I hope gamestop gets this. Good way to unload credit. Will probably be the only game this year where I'm willing to drop full msrp at launch.

Isn't that the expensive PVC figure (that'll run you about $75), whereas this offer is for a lower quality smaller prize figure?

Pretty sure Namco mentioned wanting to bring the former over, I know other companies have done similar things.

Good question. Most of the gaming sites are saying 21.5cm and the Bandai site has it at 21.5cm too. So, from the specs, it's the Alter figure, but the pics have it being the prize figure.

If it's anything like the CE for Vesperia GameStop will only have it available online, that's how I had to order mine. Amazon will likely carry it too, I really can't remember what other retailers had the one for Veeperia, but I remember it being incredibly limited, so be sure to get your preorders in.

Oh man, I really want to support them bringing this over, and my Ni No Kuni preorder was 100% perfect, but I just have zero interest in the figure. Damn tempted for the artbook though...

Argh, so torn.

I'd already pre-ordered the regular one on Amazon when they first put it up. So I'm crossing my fingers for Amazon.

Tales of is one of the few series I'd buy on Day 1
