Bandai Namco announced that they have paused pre-orders on Elden Ring Premium Collector’s Edition due to great demand. The company will announce when these limited editions will be available for pre-order again.
Elden Ring is one of the most anticipated games coming out in 2022, so it’s normal to expect demand for its Premium Collector’s Edition. Collector’s Edition is the most limited edition of the game that is available for sale. For $260, it includes an official scale replica of the helmet from the Elden Ring, along with a statue, collection box, art book, steel book, digital soundtrack, and a copy star of the game.
However, Bandai Namco has also relaunched its store with a new look and pre-orders for the Collector’s Edition have gone live. Users (myself included) encountered problems creating new accounts, as those requests were not fulfilled until later.

There’s also a problem that users can’t get over “please enter your date of birth to continue” screen pops up when trying to access the item page. Those who somehow managed to get over the age threshold and successfully add the item to their cart face another problem: the guest is not allowed to checkout and the user must have Bandai Namco Store account to confirm reservation. Because the site was having trouble creating an account and logging in, many users were stuck with the item in their shopping cart with no way to quickly check out.
We appreciate your patience with the issue of creating a new account on the Store this morning. Due to the limited availability of Premium CE, we have paused pre-orders and will notify you here again when we make it available for pre-orders.
