Wow. These box arts look good. Really good. (Bigger screens here and here)
I'm very impressed with the new look and feel of the Shooting Star series, but it still doesn't hold a candle to the EXE series.
According to Game Watch, those who pre order SSR3 (either version) will receive one of three special promotional at select stores. Toys R Us will carry a special pouch, presumable a DS carrying case. Apita Chain Stores (?) will giveaway a digital wall clock, and Jusco/Super Center stores will carry a leather Satellite Police case. Neato.
Releasing November 13th for 500 Yen is the Shooting Star Rockman 3 Data Book. The book doubles as a strategy guide and a special database for the in game Satellite Server. Based on my computer translation, it sounds like the book will offer special codes to receive bonus Cards in game.
