Sorry for the long hiatus. It took me a couple weeks to type out that title.Yikes.
It's nice to see a collector's edition for a handheld console, especially for the 3DS which has been missing true 3rd party love. As far as limited releases go this one knocks others out of the park, considering the lackluster collector's editions made for the PSP. Check out the goodies for Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance] - Mark of Mastery Edition inside after the jump.
God that's exhausting...
Under the white slipcover is a fancy cardboard case with a Kingdom Hearts/Micky Mouse logo background. There's a little extra shine to the logos on the pattern, which adds some class to the whole package.
Luckily the cardboard is easily removed and the fantastic artwork from the game is readily displayed. If you don't mind the contents sliding around freely this isn't a bad way to store the game.
Speaking of contents here's a shot of all the stuff included with the Mark of Mastery Edition:
Copy of Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]
KH 3D [DDD] 3DS clear plastic system case
12 art cards, showcasing past Kingdom Hearts games
5 AR cards
The case is similar to other promo cases in that it's really a thin plastic snap-on number. At least the paint application looks like it will last. The artwork on the cards is primarily based on promotional or official images from earlier entries. They all look nice, and the card backs share the same pattern on the external box. While not the highest quality materials this whole edition is pretty swank and a welcome addition to my collection. I'm really looking forward to checking out the game; the small sample from the demo (still available on the 3DS eShop) was intriguing and full of fast-paced action.
