More pictures of Good Smile's KOS-MOS Re: figurine surface

Over the weekend, we shared news of Good Smile Company releasing a figurine of KOS-MOS Re: from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. We had just one pic of the figurine to showcase, but now we have a bunch more that show KOS-MOS Re: from all different angles! Not surprisingly, it seems like Good Smile is putting a lot of effort into this one to make sure it's as close to the in-game representation as possible.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record gets a restock in Japan

When the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record art book was first put up for preorder, it sold out almost instantly. The response from fans shocked the publisher, as they weren't expecting such a huge swell of support. This lead to the publisher pushing the release date back to Feb. 12th, 2019 in order to fill more orders. Turns out they were working on something else in the meantime!

Preorders for another printing of the book have opened up at multiple retailers, including Amazon Japan. Click here to hop on your order while they last!

Monolith Soft's special New Year's postcards make their way to fans in Japan

As we discussed late last year, Monolith Soft was running a Twitter contest to give away 300 New Year's postcards to fans. The postcards featured a celebration of the new year, and showcased Pyra wearing a Kimono. Those postcards have finally made it into the hands of the winners, as you can see above. Again, there are only 300 of these cards in existence, so these are a pretty big deal for collectors!

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record appears to be a complete sell-out

Just a few days back, we made mention of how well Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record was selling in Japan. Things went so well with preorders that the original Feb. 2nd, 2019 release date had to be bumped back to Feb. 12th, 2019. It appears the publisher is having trouble meeting that date as well, as the book is completely sold out at multiple retailers.

There was even a restock at one point, and that managed to sell out in 40 minutes! While some customers will indeed get their book on Feb. 12th, it seems some others might have to be a bit patient for their order to arrive.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record art book slightly delayed due to more preorders than expected

Some good and bad news has come in concerning the upcoming Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Official Artworks Alrest Record art book. First and foremost, the book has been pushed back to a February 12th, 2019 release. While a delay is never good news for customers, the reasoning is definitely good for the publisher. It turns out more preorders came in than were expected, so the release date had to be pushed back to accommodate all the customers!
