What does the Ultimate Edition Look Like?
The main difference between the versions is the physical presentation (i.e. the size of the DVD/Blu-ray cases, the Ultimate Edition packaging) and the art used on the discs themselves. So please note that the disc art included on the individual DVD/Blu-ray differs to what’s included in the ultimate version. Also keep in mind the Ultimate Edition is limited to 1000 units only! So once they’re gone, they’re gone.
Have a look through the pictures below to see what to expect if you purchase the Ultimate Edition. (Click on the photos below to enlarge them.)
NOTE: On the images relating to the sketch book, you will see a varied colour tone on the red cover and ‘sketch marks’ on some pages of the pages. This is part of the design and not a fault with the product.
We hope you enjoyed this preview of the Ultimate Edition of Giovanni’s Island. Do let us know if you’ll be buying this – we’d love to hear your thoughts.
