'Dark Souls 3' news: Limited edition bundles to be available in Japan; Season Pass now available for pre-order on Steam


Sony has finally released the prices for its limited edition “Dark Souls III” Playstation 4 console bundles which will be available in two versions Cinder Knight and Elite Knight. However, these will be released in Japan only.

The consoles which will be released in Japan on March 24, are priced at 48,410 plus tax ($428.90), for the Cinder Knight and Elite Knight black versions. The silver versions will, however, be slightly more expensive at 49,410 plus tax ($437.74) for the 1TB model, reported Gamespot.

The black version of the 500 TB variant will cost 43,410 plus tax ($384.53) while a price tag of 44,410 plus tax ($393.40) will go with the silver version.

The bundles will feature a copy of “Dark Souls 3” for PS4, “Dark Souls 3” PS4 theme, disc sleeve, and soundtrack.

The company has yet to make an announcement on when similar editions will be available outside of Japan.

Meanwhile, Season Pass for the game which is priced at $24.99 can already be pre-ordered on Steam or the Xbox Marketplace, while PS4 owners need not worry as the Season Pass can be bought along with the bundle, according to Bandai NAMCO.

An earlier report by Tech Times cited a Reddit user who discovered that the Season Pass will come with two DLC expansion packs which comes with new maps, enemies and bosses. It will also have new weapons and armor.

For Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC the game will be released on March 24 while those from other regions will get it on April 12. A free copy of the original “Dark Souls” will be included with all digital pre-orders on the Xbox One.

A PC Gamer report, however, stated that the game will be made available during the PC Gamer Weekender in London from March 5 to 6.
