Dark Souls 3 Collector's Editions leaked via United Arab Emirates retailer

£324 Prestige Edition includes 40 cm figurine, release date spotted.

A pair of Dark Souls 3 special editions have been spotted on Geekay Games, a retailer based in the United Arab Emirates (thanks, NeoGAF).

The Collector Edition runs at 499 UAE dirham (about £90) and includes the following:

  • Collector's box
  • Metal case
  • Three iron-on patches
  • 25 cm Red Knight figurine
  • Cloth game map
  • Hardcover artbook
  • Soundtrack

Big spenders can splurge on the Prestige Edition [below] for 1,799 UAE dirham (about £324), which contains all the same goodies, only with a giant 40cm Lord of Cinder figurine in lieu of the Red Knight one. The packaging is also different to house such a colossal figure.

The retailer has 12th April listed as the release date, which is a more exact figure than we've previously heard. Last publisher Namco Bandai said anything about the release date it was that it would arrive on 24th March in Japan and sometime in April for Europe and North America.

We've asked Namco Bandai for confirmation on this listing's content and release date. If we're lucky, we'll even get UK-pricing. We'll update should we find out more.
