Sony has launched a limited edition Walkman to coincide with the release of Final Fantasy XV for PS4 and Xbox One. The A-Series Walkman comes with pixel-art versions of the heroes in the latest game – arriving November 29 – etched onto the rear, with Final Fantasy’s typical Roman numerals above it.
The Walkman, which also delivers Hi-Res audio, is accompanied by a pair of Sony hear.on MDR-100A headphones for 24,380 yen (~$220) and a hear.go SRS-HG1 Bluetooth speaker for 29,380 yen (~$260). Aside from its packaging, there doesn’t seem to be much separating the Walkman from a regular A-Series edition Walkman (though the icons in the software may have a slightly different color).
Final Fantasy XV is the long-awaited latest instalment in the main Final Fantasy series, reportedly in development for the last ten years. Though the single player version is exclusive to consoles, it was announced earlier this month that Machine Zone – the developers of Game of War – had partnered with Square Enix to make a Final Fantsy XV mobile MMO.
The FFXV Walkman will go on sale for 33,880 yen (~$300) in Japan but, like the other accessories, it probably won’t be sold in the West.
