Limited Editions for USA announced – EU/AU coming shortly
Publisher PM Studios have revealed the Limited Edition contents for their upcoming Vita rhythm title, SUPERBEAT: XONiC. Currently, these items are for the US, Canada and Mexico only, however it hopefully provides some clues as to the contents of the soon to be revealed European/Australian LE version.
According to the publisher:
The first edition is called the X-CLUSIVE COLLECTION and will include a copy of SUPERBEAT: XONiC along with two exclusive soundtrack discs. The other edition is called the X-OTIC COLLECTION and it includes two LP records with sleeve covers, two soundtrack discs, and a copy of SUPERBEAT: XONiC, packaged in an outer box. Both of these LE packages will only be available for purchase at PM Studios’ store at https://superbeatxonic.ecwid.com
Pre-orders for both limited editions open October 9th at 4pm PST (October 10th at 10AM AEST).
PM Studios are ensuring that these Limited Editions stay limited, with only 450 units of the X-OTIC Collection and 500 units of the X-CLUSIVE Collection available for purchase. When asked whether Australians can expect a Limited Edition release, European publisher Rising Star Games indicated that they are close to an announcement, with “more info coming soon”. In the meantime, the standard edition of SUPERBEAT: XONiC is available to pre-order from JB Hi-Fi online with a scheduled release of October 29th.
A spiritual sequel to the DJMax series, SUPERBEAT: XONiC boasts a 50 track songlist from a variety of genres along with 4, 6 and 8 button input modes designed to cater to both beginners and veterans.
PM Studios have opened up pre-orders to international customers through this link.
They have also confirmed that despite this, the offer is not for Australian residents who are still waiting on word from Rising Star Games on a Limited Edition release.
It was whilst toiling away in the bowels of the now mythical Australian Gamer forums that Stephen’s attempts at writing were recognised by then up-and-coming Matt ‘Hewso’ Hewson as “not terrible”. Since then he has contributed to such sites as The Age’s now defunct Screen Play, the now-long retired Black Panel and currently serves under Editor-in-Chief Hewso for Player2.net.au, at least until the pattern of decline obvious in his previous engagements is picked up on by Hewso and he is exiled from games journalism forever.
