    Speaking to Eurogamer, director Yui Tanimura said the PC version isn’t complete and has therefore not been dated.

    “We’re still working on what options we allow players to have in order for players to customize the spec of the PC version. Our goal is to release the PC version in the same window,” he said.

    “For the PC version we’re simply saying March – we’re trying our best for PC and console. The reason we can’t announce the specific date is we’re working on more options on how to make the PC version optimal.”

    The PC version has been in the works alongside Dark Souls 2, for the first time in From Software’s history; the first dark Souls was its first PC port, and it’s been quite open about its unfamiliarity with the process.

    “With the first Dark Souls, the development team started work on the console version before the PC version, and because of that there were less options for the development team to make the PC version more optimal in terms of resolution and so on. With Dark Souls 2, the team’s working on console and PC at the same time, so there shouldn’t be an issue with how optimal it will be on day one,” Tanimura said.

    Namco Bandai has prepared two special editions for the March launch, both available in limited quantities while stocks last. The Collector’s Edition includes a 30cm knight figurine, an exclusive hardcover art book, a full-colour fabric map, soundtrack and metal case.

    The other special package, the Black Armour Edition, is a pre-order bonus. It includes a metal case and the soundtrack. Images of both are below.

    Not seeing pre-orders open on any NA sites either, so its probably a bit too early to jump on the pre-order for this.

    I didn't see a price but if its reasonable, i'll be grabbing the CE. Though unlike my Xillia CE...i'll actually open this one.

    EDIT: Also ruined my shorts when I saw a PC version that's going to be launch window. That's beautiful.

    That's what I'd like to know too. Don't want to pay too much because the last CE I bought, (MGR:R) the lamp that was basically all that drove the price up, was fragile enough that a 3 foot drop shattered it, so I've just got the sword piece now. IIRC it was somewhere over 100$ so that kind-of irked me.
    I got a ton of enjoyment out of the first dark souls though, so I might consider it even around 120$... but that's just me.
