Oh, okay. Well, apparently I got 2 day if that's the $11 option. I don't expect to get it within 2 days of release, though.

Can't wait for my Wizard's Edition. That said, I'm probably not going to get it delivered to me until February.

Right, I guess it'll just arrive within two days of whenever it's shipped. So I'm crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.

To those getting the Wizard Edition: are you going to open it? This limited edition is incredibly rare, and you could easily get a vanilla copy to play.

What's the point of having an unopened artbook and soundtrack?

I'm going to open it without question..

Got the Wizard's Edition on lockdown since back in August... can't believe it's coming so soon! Now if I can just finish up P4 before it lands on my doorstop... hopefully it won't take very long to ship.

In summary:
  • Dialogue is cheesy
  • Too many enemies
  • Boss battles too cheap
  • Save points too limited
  • "old-school RPG mechanics"

All the excitement about collector editions has left me feeling kinda left out, as I can't spend more than the $60 base price. But I'll be damned if I'm not hyped about this game regardless. Been starving for an HD JRPG that looks and plays like this. Bring it, next week!

Huh? Why wouldn't you open it? Unless you plan to scalp it on eBay later or something? Or you collect sealed games?

Did they talk about why it was cheesy, was the story okay regardless? I haven't played a jrpg since skies of arcadia on dreamcast, which brings back vmu memories. Anyway, I'm still looking forward to this unless the story is poor.

I have it preordered in the hope that it ends this JRPG generation on a high note, because there weren't so many but this game seems to bring together many elements I used to like in old-skool JRPGS and covers it in a beautiful art-style.

Yeah, definitely opening my copy. I bought it for the amazing hard bound book. Also, I've never bought anything to keep it sealed in a shelf for it's "rare" value.

I'm looking forward to reading impressions about this. Didn't get to play the demo nor do I think I'll get to play it at launch because of ps3 hard drive issues, but this may be a great Summer game purchase for me. I love the Ghibli art!

Why does the Wizard's Edition have to lack a steelbook of any kind? :(

This is an issue that needs to go away with JRPGS. I don't have any qualms with the other things listed.

Long as I can skip cutscenes, and there is a save point before a boss. I don't care. That is what sucked in some games having to rewatch a scene many a time over cause you can't skip it if the boss beats you.

Ni no Kuni sounds more unique and memorable than Second Country which is the direct translation.
