When the Nintendo Wii U RPG arrives on December 4th, this is what you’ll get for the $89.99 asking price:

•The Xenoblade Chronicles X game
•A gorgeous book of concept art with more than 100 pages, featuring select art for the very first time
•A unique USB drive modeled after the game’s “Lifehold Unit,” pre-loaded with a selection of 10 music tracks from the game’s memorable soundtrack

Fancy a pre-order? Click on over to to secure a copy of the Xenoblade Chronicles X special edition. (Well, you’re going to need to monitor all the retail channels as it appears the initial stock is already sold out. When I checked initially the pre-order was active, but now Amazon is showing it as currently unavailable, stating that “we don’t know when or if this item will be back in stock.” Bummer.)

Here are some close-up pics of the special edition’s individual components.
