Note that importing is unfortunately not an option. You may want to use a service such as Forward2Me as a workaround if you live in the United States.

Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition launches May 29. The Definitive Works Set includes the game, 250-page art book, a steelbook, vinyl featuring the Monado printed on the sleeve, and a poster.
