Gran Turismo 5 had a downloadable update back in October, bringing the game to version 2.0. Now that update is getting a retail version as Sony announces Gran Turismo 5 Spec II. The game will include all of the content from the Spec II update as well as a voucher for the downloadable content that was released on October 18. The game will be released on February 2, 2012 at a price of ¥4,980.
The above release does have one bit of restriction. That release date is only for Japan. There has been no word on whether the retail copy of the update shall head overseas. That’s a shame, but I’m sure this update will find its way to the West. Each Gran Turismo, including Prologue versions, have been release in all major territories, so this game should be no exception.
