From Software and certain stores across Japan have teamed up to provide a special promotion for their upcoming GameCube RPG, Rune (known in North America as Lost Kingdoms). Anyone who reserves the game at a participating store will take advantage of From's "Rune Triple Premium Campaign," and will receive three original items for their effort. The items will include a plastic "control guide sheet" containing descriptions of all the cards in the game, memory card stickers, and a "creature guidebook."
The promotion will begin on April 20th, and it will continue past the release date until May 6th, or while supplies last. The game itself will be released in Japan on April 26th, for 6800 yen (about $51), with the North American version arriving less than a month later on May 15th. No news on a similar promotion for the North American release has yet been announced, but RPGamer will bring news as it arrives.
