    I don’t know what they are doing in Europe but in America I believe the game is a gamestop exclusive.

    Really? wow…

    It seems we have similar case with Freedom Wars, It is on Amazon and few british shops… but there isn’t a single local country with pre-order.

    Erm ok… I am confused…

    that “Soma Link Edition” is a name for Japanese collector edition :)

    That name isn’t above picture of a game right? It is besides of it and there is even “+” indicating that it is another element. So yeah it seems that day-1 is simple day-1 and “Soma Link Edition” is the name of this big box from JP (cool stuff).

    I hope that this draw will be for all EU citizens :/ Bandai Namco in the past did similar thing but only for Britons :/ (not cool)
