Scratch off that Autumn release you've noted for Dissidia: Final Fantasy. Square Enix has finally given a more specific release date for the game's PAL outing along with details about a new collector's edition.
Europe and other PAL territories will be seeing Dissidia: Final Fantasy across retail shelves on September 4. It's later than the US launch, but perhaps the CE package can make up for it. Here's what it contains:
Note that the last item may be an EB Games exclusive, as the AU EB Games site says that it is. Even without a PSP to go along with it, all that content sounds loads better than the PSP bundle GameStop is offering. Shame the press release didn't mention any pricing details.
