I have received no communication from Arc System Works. Not even a heads up they were charging my card, but the charge was finalized a little over a week ago.

Yep, same exact thing with me.

I had an order completion email that had a link to the order. When I clicked on that it actually showed that it had shipped and provided tracking. Looks like 2 day shipping as mine is coming from California and I'm on the east coast.

Actually was just going to post this.  No emails, but I checked my account at the Arc System Works website and they have tracking for my order showing it is supposed to be delivered today.  Communication from them is still shitty but at least it is almost here!

Whaddaya know!

I dug up the original order confirmation email from when I placed the order and clicked on the order status. Mine is on the USPS truck for delivery today.

Got mine. it's not a steelbook but some weird new type I haven't seen. It doesnt have a spine but the hinge is not in the middle giving some room for text on the spine. Mine also has a slash on the spine and my box has a pretty thin case which results in quite a few dents in the box, but not the case. I'm glad the game is great because I'm pretty disappointed in the CE. Interested in selling all the extras if someone wants them cheap.

My BlazBlue Cross Tag Battle CE arrived in immaculate condition, miracously. There was a lot of empty space in the shipping box.

I’ve emailed Arc System Works ro try to confirm the manufacturer of the steel case. If it is MetalPak they’re using a different hinge than on the G2 (PS4/BluRay) sized cases.

I’m kind of sad that it’s a considerably thicker case than the Steelbooks, I’m not sure if it’ll fit in one of my protective sleeves.

LRG announced another Switch Steelbook, and many other new Switch games that will most likely get Steelbooks also. 

 

I'm hoping that the Nintendo Direct today doesn't disappoint with some Steelbook announcements that are from publishers other than LRG.

The UK (at least) is getting a Steelbook for Smash

Another crappy outer cover IMO

E: Man, these shitty first party cases are killing all my interest in collecting these.
