Update 2: Pre-orders are live on Amazon!

Update: Added in a better image. Official announcement is after the break. The package will cost $89.99.

During a panel at PAX Prime 2015, Nintendo revealed the North American special edition for Xenoblade Chronicles X.

Consumers will receive a few items with their purchase. Nintendo is including a copy of the game, an art book (over 100 pages), a digital copy of the soundtrack on a custom USB drive (10 songs), and matted art card.

Nintendo apparently said at the panel that pre-orders will be going live at some point today. When they do, we’ll be sure to let you know.

Head past the break for concept art images shown at the PAX panel.

The retail version of Shovel Knight is seeing a slight price increase. It was originally going for $20, but it’s now being bumped up to $25.

There is at least a very good reason for the change in price. It turns out that the packaged edition will now include a soundtrack.

Amazon seems to be one of the few retailers left with pre-orders at $20. If you’re interested, put in a reservation here.
