Square Enix announced a Collector's Edition of Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII will be available in North America at launch. It will be available exclusively on the Square Enix online store for $89.99 and is available for pre-order now.

What does the extra $30 get you? First, there's the collectible box art with the original Japanese cover. Inside, there's an 80-page art book filled with character designs and environment sketches, with content from the game's character designer Tetsuya Nomura and art director Isamu Kamikokuryo. Also included is a silver embossed pocket watch featuring the game's logo, a classy and subtle piece of memorabilia for fans. Last but not least, the Collector's Edition comes with the Aerith Gainsborough ‘Midgar’s Flower Girl’ costume DLC to dress Lightning as the classic Final Fantasy VII girl.

If you pre-order, the Collector's Edition will come with the same pre-order bonus as the regular edition: Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strige SOLDIER 1st Class Uniform outfit and Buster Sword weapon.

The finale to the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy arrives February 11, 2014 in North America and three days later on Valentine's Day in Europe.
