Square Enix revealed the $99.99 collector's edition version of Final Fantasy Type-0 HD today, detailing the deluxe package that's coming to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One remaster of the 2011 PlayStation Portable game. The publisher also confirmed that owning Type-0 HD on "day one" will be the only way Final Fantasy fans will be able to get access to the playable demo of Final Fantasy 15.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD's collector's edition will come with the following bonuses, detailed by Square Enix, in addition to the game:

  • Golden Steelbook case: Featuring illustrations by world-renowned artist Yoshitaka Amano, this premium case holds both the game and soundtrack CD.
  • Composer's Selections soundtrack: Includes 15 tracks hand-picked by the game's composer, Takeharu Ishimoto.
  • Final Fantasy Type-0 manga: A complete 200 page manga comic establishing the world and characters of the game.
  • 80-page art book: Dive into the war-torn land of Orience through its illustrations and art renders.
  • Ace's cards: Five life-size replicas of the iconic cards held by Class Zero's Ace.
  • Final Fantasy 15 Episode Duscae demo: Every copy of the Collector's Edition includes a code for the Final Fantasy 15 playable demo.

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD CE

Final Fantasy 15 Episode Duscae, the playable demo of the next major Final Fantasy that was announced at Tokyo Game Show, is exclusive to Final Fantasy Type-0 HD.

"We're never going to release it as a stand-alone piece down the line," Square Enix associate product marketing manager Scott Strichart said on the PlayStation Blog. "Secondly, it's intended to be a special gift for those of you who purchase early — the demo will be limited to the 'Day One' edition of the game, meaning that only the first shipment is going to have the demo in it."

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD will be released in North America on March 17, 2015. It's not clear yet when the Final Fantasy 15 demo will be available for download.
