Dead Rising 2 is going to be released on the 28th of this month. I absolutely loved the original, and as I write this, I`m waiting for the Dead Rising 2 Case Zero Demo to finishing downloading. As I wait, I figured I would look over some of the nice swag the series has seen.
The actual game is seeing several Collector Editions when it launches.
The NA Zombrex Edition includes a fake syringe of the Zombrex medicine featured in the game plot, along with an accompanying safety information card, a Zombrex-labeled steelcase, a sales brochure, and a prescription pad. The360 version also comes with the Zombrex Dead Rising Sun movie whereas the PS3 version has a voucher for a Dead Rising 2 XrossMediaBar dynamic theme and a behind the scenes featurette.
The Outbreak Pack, which is exclusive to Europe, features a red box and a twelve inch zombie figurine complete with interchangeable heads (among other art related things). It seems that Australia will get both editions, but they will actually be limited – 700 units each.
Anyways, here are some cool promo stuff related to the series.
Greene`s Hardware Dead Rising 2 Shirt (M) – This shirt was given away in limited quantities at an exclusive Dead Rising 2 release party thrown by Capcom during the weekend of PAX 2010. There`s also an XL for a third of the price.
