When it comes to collector’s editions of games we’ve seen a lot of weird, wonderful, rare and expensive products hitting the shelves, but the upcoming Dark Souls Trilogy Collector’s Edition might take the cake…
The recently-revealed edition, which is exclusive to Europe, is up for pre-order, and if you’re lucky enough to nab one you’ll be the proud owner of one of just 2000 copies.
The official Bandai Namco website confirms the contents:
The most complete collection of Dark Souls games and lore ever created, available exclusively from the Bandai Namco online store. Pre-order now and don’t delay, this limited run of 2000 won’t last forever! https://t.co/6UA4Fpv8ie pic.twitter.com/EL5BNtPE9w

“Available to pre-order exclusively from the BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Europe store, the limited 2,000 copy Collector Edition will contain:
- The DARK SOULS TRILOGY, including Dark Souls Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar of The First Sin, Dark Souls III: The Fire Fades, plus all DLC content for all three games
- A high-quality, numbered, and hand-painted 34cm Elite Knight at the Bonfire statue
- The DARK SOULS TRILOGY soundtrack – featuring 6 soundtrack CDs with music from all three games
- And a 460-page DARK SOULS TRILOGY compendium* – containing illustrated maps with boss and NPC locations, item encyclopedia, bestiary of enemies and bosses, and a manuscript of all dialogue from each game reiterate.”
So how much is Bandai Namco selling this rare edition for? An eye-watering £449.99 GBP, which is around $580 USD.
Naturally, fans of the franchise are pretty disappointed with the cost, with one user on Twitter branding it as “disgusting.”
I love Dark Souls but the price of the Trilogy CE is disgusting, I honestly don’t see how it’s worth £450.
