Dark Souls 3 Gets Pricey Special Edition Guide Book

Dark Souls 3 Estus Flask Edition
Prima Games is releasing a special edition of their Dark Souls 3 guide, and it’s up for quite a premium, and for good reason.

For $ 160, Prima is bundling six premium items to come with the guide, in what they call the Dark Souls III Estus Flask Edition Guide Book. Fans are debating the worth of the bundle online, but at least this is only for the guide, and not a bundle or special edition for the game itself.

This is what is included in the special edition:

  • Estus Flask replica in resin
  • Wolf Knight’s Greatsword replica, at the right side to be used as a bookmark
  • Dark Souls 3 Darksign Journal, a high quality moleskine notebook
  • Mobile friendly eGuide code
  • Premium hardcover copy of the Prima guide
  • Dust jacket for the guide featuring artwork from the game

Part of the justification for the price also seems to be the limited print run for the guide itself. Would you buy this special edition guide, or get help in playing Dark Souls 3 in different ways? Would you purchase it as a Dark Souls collectible? Share your thoughts with us in the comments.

Dark Souls 3 will be released on March 24, 2016, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows. There will also be a special edition Dark Souls 3 PlayStation 4 in Japan, and Microsoft Australia offered the original Dark Souls as a digital pre-order incentive.
