In North America the limited edition will be the only way to get a physical copy, as was the case with the previous Atelier Plus release, Escha & Logy Plus. In Europe however, Koei Tecmo Europe have confirmed that a standard version will be available from retailers across Europe while the limited edition will remain exclusive to NISA Europe.

Finally, Koei Tecmo Europe also confirmed that both the English and Japanese audio will be included on cartridge, which is notable as Escha & Logy Plus had Japanese audio available only as DLC.

Here is the US press release sent out by Koei Tecmo America:

    That’s a pretty cool collector’s edition.

      I agree. Hopefully we get this treatment for the other Atelier Plus games.
