Dead Rising 2 Limited Edition Includes Zombie With Interchangeable Heads

That European limited edition of Dead Rising 2 we revealed last week will also be available in Australia, according to Capcom. but where can you get it and how much will it cost?

The Dead Rising 2 Outbreak Edition can be found shambling around EB Games, GAME and JB Hi-Fi and will chainsaw-rake $169.95 RRP from your wallet.

It contains:

* Detailed 12-inch zombie figurine complete with interchangeable heads

* Dead Rising 2 game

* A making of the game DVD

* A “Sports Fan Theme Pack” including exclusive skills and a unique costume, pictured below

* Tape It Or Die catalogue detailing how to make your own zombie-destroying weapons

Plus, there’s a couple of console-specific extras:

* PS3 owners get a unique PS3 Dynamic Theme

* Xbox 360 owners get the Dead Rising Sun full-length movie directed by Keiji Inafune

Be warned, Capcom has advised that only 700 of each format will be available in Australia. So I would imagine that means you’ll need to preorder to get hold of one.

Speaking of preorders, GAME is advertising a separate preorder bonus which includes a totally different zombie figurine. This one stands a mere 9.5cm tall and is wearing a tasteful Hawaiian shirt.

EB has its own preorder bonus – a ninja costume! It’s available for both PS3 and Xbox 360, but not PC. JB has yet to reveal any preorder details.

Standard question, then: who’s getting what and from where?
