Sorry America, Your Tekken 7 Collector’s Edition Features No Season Pass

By   /   Jan 25, 2017

When the Tekken 7 Collector’s Edition was announced yesterday by Bandai Namco, many were quick to notice that it made no mention of the game’s Season Pass.

It’s unfathomable that a company would choose to cut out content from a Collector’s Edition bundle, specially when it’s being slapped with a massive $150 price tag.

As it turns out, there’s a stark difference between the Tekken 7 Collector’s Edition being sold in America and Europe.

The Collector’s Edition being sold in North and South America is devoid of the Season Pass. However, the European version of the same edition is not. This was confirmed earlier today by official Tekken 7 channels.

The Season Pass grants access to three content packs that will include new playable characters, stages, at least one new game mode, costume packs and a bonus 35-piece Metallica costume pack. Bandai Namco is yet to explain why it decided to restrict the American player-base like so.

Furthermore, Collector’s Editions are mostly released for consoles. In America, the Tekken 7 Collector’s Edition is only available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, the European edition is available for purchase on consoles as well as PC.

You can compare for yourself the product listings on both the U.S. and U.K. branches of retailer giant Amazon.

The Collector’s Edition features the original soundtrack, base-game, a Steel Book case, and a 12″ x 18″ statue of Kazuya locked in combat with Heihachi. There’s also a Digital Deluxe Edition which bundles the base-game with the Season Pass. Reportedly, it also features two additional characters.

It needs to be reiterated that there’s no reason for Bandai Namco to remove content from the Collector’s Edition of a specific region. Besides collectibles, such limited editions always include the offers and features from the cheaper editions being sold. If the Deluxe Edition comes with the Season Pass then why isn’t the Collector’s Edition as well?

Hopefully this is a mistake on the company’s part.
