You may recall that, a few months ago, Bandai Namco announced the Dark Souls Trilogy, a compilation of the three Dark Souls games — Dark Souls: Remastered, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin and Dark Souls III — serving as the perfect way to bring new players into the world of Lordran. For one reason or another, this trilogy pack never made its way to Europe. Until now that is, as the publisher has revealed that the compilation will be coming later this year.
There will be two editions of the trilogy compilation available: a standard edition that will come with digital soundtracks in addition to the games and their DLC and a limited run collector's edition available exclusively from Bandai Namco's own online store. Costing £449.99, each of these 2,000 collector's editions will include the games and their DLC (you'd expect that to be a given, but sometimes these fancy editions actually do not have the actual game), the Dark Souls Trilogy soundtrack made up of 6 CDs with music from all three games, a 460 page compendium that contains maps, a bestiary, item encyclopedia and a manuscript of all dialogue and finally, a 34cm hand-painted statue of an Elite Knight standing at the series iconic bonfire. You can see what all that looks like below.
The standard edition of the Dark Souls Trilogy will release on March 1st. Due to the extra time needed to hand-paint each statue while ensuring the highest quality, the Collector's Edition will start to release on May 31st, and continue through June.
