    Did anyone snag an extra Ys steelbook edition?

    So I already bought the ps4 and switch CE of the game, and I saw this is available but didn't think for the life of me it would sell out in less than a day. Did anyone happen to get an extra copy, I am up for sale or trade.

    It popped up in a random NISA online store sale. It was just the game out of the CE, without any extras. They probably just had a handful of overstock copies, which is why it soldout in no time.

    ^ I dont think it was from the CE. I have the ce for switch and ps4 but havent opened either, but looking at the pic on the site, its not the same thing. I think the steel book was an amazon exclusive, its got its own factor seal, so I seriously doubt its from the ce.

    It might have the same cover as the steelbook in the CE, but it is its own variant.

    Basically the only difference is that cardboard sleeve then?

    Amazon exclusive items are like that. One that comes to mind is the Persona 4 (amazon) exclusive that came bundled with an art book and soundtrack cd in an outer box.

    Oh, news to me. I just noticed it pop up in that NISA spam and assumed it was nothing.

    Yeah i think the only difference its a clear plastic slip cover. I dont think that comes in the CE, they took the steel case regular game and then added the slip cover. That was one of the reasons I didnt pull the trigger when it first showed up on NISA.
