By now, you’ve probably already seen Marvelous Games’ thorough unboxing video of Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash‘s Girls of Paradise Edition, due out in Europe and Australia this Friday, then North America next week – exclusively on PlayStation 4.
However, for those of you who wish to freeze frame and get a closer look at the contents, without making poor Scott feel like you’re undressing him with your eyes like some buxom shinobi, here’s a little treat for you: an unboxing gallery!
First up, is the outer box. Now, while I love purchasing Collector’s Editions, I have started to grow wary of their size. Nintendo’s The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Fire Emblem Echoes‘ sets for example, are huge. Fortunately (and perhaps worryingly on the grander scheme of things), Marvelous have clearly read my mind – as unlike most of its cast, the size of this set is comfortably modest. Below, are pictures of the top and size comparisons with the PS4 case itself:
Now of course, without delving deeper, an unboxing is just an outright lie, so let’s crack this thing open – revealing the Nararock Festival Digipack – containing not only an Original Soundtrack CD, but also, a Blu-ray disc featuring the franchise’s game opening themes (Note: as mentioned in Marvelous’ video, the audio for Skirting Shadows‘ OP has been replaced for licensing reasons. Aren’t lawyers bad people?)
Beneath the digipack lies our Hibarock Party art book, which contains production and key artwork from the game. The finish used on the cover is sort of rubbery and really nice to the touch. I won’t spoil too much of the contents, but here’s an example of what you’re going to get:
Digging even deeper, reveals the piece de resistance – and the whole reason we bought this set to begin with: the game. Which has perhaps the best, or the worst, marketing slogan on the back – we’re not quite sure which, but love it anyway.
For those wondering, the advertised DLC code is included in a pamphlet kept within the game case itself.
And there you have it! That’s Marvelous Europe’s Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash – Girls of Paradise Edition. If you’re interested in a copy, you can purchase one from their store for £59.99 (excl. p&p).
