Octopath CE up on Best Buy with GCU

https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6219502

 

Thanks got one for pick up so that I won't have to deal with it being mailed in a bubble mailer.

Instead, you'll have to deal with ripping the art off the cardboard!

This kind of thing leads me to ordering multiples at various BBY and only keeping the best one. Kind of shitty thing to do, but I want an HQ item if I'm paying up for CE.

Nice got one for in store pickup. Thanks!

GCU is so amazing - I can’t believe there was once upon a time that we didn’t have it lol.

Thanks for the link! I was going to skip the CE if I didn't lock one in at BB w/ GCU :)  Store pickup made it even better.

The game is actually called Octopath now? I thought that was a working title.

It was originally called "Project Octopath Traveler". But it appears they dropped the "Project" part.
The current rumour is that the word "Octopath" corresponds with the first letter of each of thr 8 playable characters (an anagram?).

Yes I managed to grab a copy of the octopath traveler CE after waking up from a nap. Got to love that gcu discount.

My GCU just lapsed, anybody tried preordering for in-store, and get GCU several days prior to pick up, and receive GCU discount upon pick up?

I only bought one, but I also did not get a confirmation email. It's in my order history so it should be okay, though.

 

Also got the pre-order pin added to my NNK CE pre-order at BBY. They certainly took their sweet time there.

Mine was delayed by half an hour or so, but it eventually showed up.  This has been happening to me more and more on Bestbuy.com.

You could always return/rebuy after pickup if nothing else.

I like this version also but no hard cover art book makes me glad I have the UK version pre ordered.

Acronym, not anagram.  An anagram of 'Octopath' would be 'topcoat'.

Yeah but the DLC isn't compatible unless you have a U.K. PSN account.

I've asked this question a million times and while I had bad experience with UK SFV my understanding is redeeming DLC on a UK account still makes it available on your US account of the same system. Annoying but not terrible if it works.

 

I have a US and UK on order and have thought about making an "ultimate" CE but am trying to avoid it because it's a sutpid idea.

Ni No Kuni II Kings Edition unboxing:

 

That's a pretty great CE. Kinda wish I had pre-ordered that now...

Kings Edition cost less than the US CE and it has more stuff, Easily the better choice.  :-

Wow, the King's Edition is really nice. Blows the NA version out of the water.

I'm not a fan of vinyl (at all), but I would buy that vinyl in a heartbeat.  I'm shocked you can actually make music with it.
