In recent months, Bandai Namco has shared a lot of information about THE FIRE RING, the most anticipated game of their lineup for next year. The title will be sold in an expensive and great edition that caused great problems for users when trying to buy it.

You may remember that Bandai Namco introduced the ELDEN RING Premium Collector’s Edition, which includes among other things, a statue and a life-size replica of Malenia’s helmet, and which would be sold exclusively through the official Bandai Namco online store.

When all the editions were announced, the Bandai Namco North American online store was not receiving pre-orders, but consumers would have to wait. Today said wait ended, but it was not to the liking of the players.
