Thank you for the lyrics translation, I can't wait to sit down and listen to it properly :D

Note: The topic has been split :)

I preordered my limited edition from Play-Asia yesterday (Yesasia have it available too), 7/7 can't come soon enough! :)

Here they are:

The standard version is US$31.99 + Free international shipping (when ordering over $39), which is cheaper than the Play-Asia price of US$24.90 + $9.40 shipping fee.

This is so expensive for me! I only need to purchase 68.8 yuan, that is 10.6 dollar for a standard version~ Looks like we finally found something benefit living in China

Everything is a lot cheaper in China for us (I;m not surprised that things are more expensive once imported though!)

Well, that is to be expected. A newly released game in North America normally sells for $59.

if they are selling the traditional chinese version then the price is not really high anyways - the price of standard version in taiwan is NT$850 (which is about 30 USD / 190 CNY) :shock:

I was just browsing yesasia today and noticed it and came here to post if there wasn't any. Guess I should come here more often.

I also put in a preorder for the limited edition one. Hope that's a art book in the yes-asia photo. Can't wait :)

The standard edition is just the game. The collector edition comes with goodies.

By the looks of it looks like a necklace, postcards, some sort of scroll, a book (hopefully a art book), and some other type of small book or pamphlet.

Yup, that's correct! Though in Mainland China's "Special Edition" there's also other goodies included (not in the above versions)

Just a word of warning - Play-Asia have changed the availability of the XJ5 limited edition to "Soon", meaning you can no longer preorder it. To make matters worse, when I emailed them this morning they stated that even though I preordered on May 26th (and had already paid in full with Paypal) they weren't able to guarantee my preorder as they were having problems securing the stock with their supplier.

In the past when I have sent them panicked inquiries about limited stock items they have told me that I will receive the item as I'd preordered and not to worry, which is why I'm bringing this up here.

Lastly, Yesasia are still accepting preorders for the limited edition version ;)

Email response in full -
Dear Kimimi,

Thank you for contacting Play-Asia.com.

I am sorry that we cannot guarantee that we must be able to fulfill your
order as our supplier seems cannot fulfill our order. We are still
checking with them. If you want to cancel the order, please kindly contact
us again for a refund.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Best regards,

Michelle
