Dark Souls trilogy, collectibles and remaster – praise the sun!

It’s a very busy week for Dark Souls fans as news are popping up everywhere. Fans are overloaded with the announcement the first game’s remaster, the Japanese collectible trilogy box and now Fangamer is releasing a line of collectible figurines and apparel based on Dark Souls.

Let’s start with the collectible box. The box has only been announced in Japan for now, but it will contain the remastered version of Dark Souls, Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin and Dark Souls III: Ember Fades edition. The download content for all three games will be included in the box and in physical discs instead of downloadable codes.

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. The box set will also include a bookend statue that features the flagship knight of the third game, plus the iconic bonfire from the series. These parts can be placed next to each other to form a single figure if you don’t fancy using them as bookends.

There are three dictionaries included in this set, one for each game. The dictionaries will contain items, weapons, armor and spells. There’s been no mention of any concept art being included in these dictionaries.

Finally, we have the bonus soundtracks from each game and they’re also shipped in physical discs instead of downloadable content, plus 10 official illustrations and a special frame (yes, just one).

If you expect this to be expensive, then you wouldn’t be disappointed in knowing that it’ll cost you 49,800 Yen or around $450.

This box set, along with the remastered version of Dark Souls, will release at the same time on May 24, 2018 in Japan and for those who are interested, there’s also a limited edition bust for sale on the Dark Soul official page.  Pre-order for the Remastered version and the bust has already started, with the game costing 4,800 Yen or roughly $45.

If that doesn’t satisfy your craving, then consider the new merchandise that Fangamer is going to release soon. They’ve teamed up with Bandai Namco and will be producing a few collectible figures and clothing from the Dark Souls franchise.

No specifics have been confirmed on which merchandise will be available, nor which characters they will feature, but know that they are in the works and will be released in Spring.

Fangamer is a merchandise seller who has previously released collectibles for over 50 games. You can check out their site here.
