Wild ARMs 5 Dated, Set to Launch as 10th Anniversay Edition

A lot of great stuff to pass along regarding Wild ARMs 5 this evening. First and foremost, XSEED has now given the PS2 RPG an official release date of August 28th, so only a few weeks to go.

With this year being the Wild ARMs series’ 10th Anniversary, it has also been announced that Wild ARMs 5 will celebrate the occasion by releasing as a special anniversary edition featuring an 80-page “The Art of Wild ARMs” artbook with full-color illustrations spanning the entire series and an embossed foil box to house the book and game case (packaging pictured below). Best of all, this special edition won’t cost any extra price, it will retain a $39.99 price point.

All launch units of Wild ARMs 5 will be the anniversary edition, so there’s no choice to make. The only catch is that once the initial launch shipment is gone, the game will revert back to a standard release without the anniversary content. So if you’re a diehard Wild ARMs fan and want to secure a 10th Anniversary copy, you better be sure to put a pre-order down at your local game shop asap.

And to close out this Wild ARMs 5 update, here is a gallery of 25 new screenshots for you to browse through.
