Here’s the Japanese special edition for Secret of Mana. As you can see, it is pretty hot shit. You got your game, your soundtrack, figurines of the three characters, and then a freaking pop-up book with the Mana tree, so you can set the figures next to the tree and recreate the game’s iconic cover art. (And we don’t even get a physical edition at all in the US...)
