Final Fantasy XVI finally has a release date, and you know what that means! Yep, it's time for Square Enix to unveil a very expensive Collector's Edition. This package is only going to be available through the publisher's online store — it's available to pre-order now — and you'll be paying an eye-watering £329.99 / $349.99 to snag one. And that's without shipping!
Here's what it looks like:
