In many stores Dark Souls’ initial stock consist of Limited Editions (it is also called as Day One Edition), so you can get a special package for the price of a standard game.
The outer box is very simple, because it is made of thin paper, so it damages quite easily. The box art is unique, but has a very plain design without embossed and shiny captions. Inside you can find the standard edition game; it includes a redeem code, which allows you to download the mini strategy guide. The most important item of the package is the hardcover art book. This release contains only images without any description texts. The first page holds the soundtrack CD and you can find the “Making of … “ DVD on the very last page.
