If you think the title of this article is a joke, think again. I’m totally serious. Marvelous announced today the Japanese limited editions of the 2D fighting game Nitroplus Blasterz: Heroines Infinite Duel for PS4 and PS3, and looks like the crafty publisher found a rather funny way to represent the new console’s excess of power in comparison with the older one.
The game will be released on December 10th in Japan, and while the standard edition will cost 6,990 yen, the limited edition will be sold at 12,160 yen, which translates to just south of 100 bucks.
The limited edition will feature a 3D crystal art, a soundtrack CD, an artbook, a download code for bikini costumes, and a special case.
Here’s the crystal paperweight:
And last but not least, the critical element that differentiates the PS4 special case from the PS3 one, the cover.
The PS4 case features Ignis from Jingai Makyo, Super Sonico from the SoniComi series, and Sansei Muramasa from Sokou Akki Muramasa. The PS3 version comes with Ouka Satsurikuin from the SoniComi series, Al-Azif from Demonbane, and Saya from Saya no Uta.
Funnily, the PS4 version features the characters with the biggest breasts in the cast (intentionally depicted quite a lot bigger than usual, actually), while the PS3 version includes the less endowed ladies.
I guess those generous 8 gigabytes of GDDR5 need to be somehow distinguished from the puny 512 megabytes built into PS3…
It’ll be certainly interesting to see if the good folks XSEED Games will preserve the mammary status-quo when they’ll bring the game over to the west this Winter.
And for an anticlimactic ending, here are the pre-order bonuses, in the form of an orange costume variation for the characters, which you can see below. I already lost you, didn’t I?
