Namco Bandai Games has announced the preorder bonuses for the special editions of From Software’s highly anticipated 3rd-person action epic Dark Souls II.
These bonuses vary from distributor, but they are incredibly rare and will definitely be sought after.
Those who pre-order any edition of Dark Souls II from GAME will receive a t-shirt, while pre-ordering via Amazon UK will get you a “Steel Art Card”. These art cards feature concept art from From Software’s dark epic, and are limited to 2,500 prints. As if that wasn’t exclusive enough, each one of them is given a unique number and features an etching of Dark Souls II director Yui Tanimura’s autograph.
If you pre-order from Zavvi, you’ll be able to receive a 22-page comic based on Dark Souls II. This will be a physical copy, signed by the writers themselves.
ShopTo are offering gamers an exclusive iPhone 5 cover when they pre-order the Collector’s Edition or the Black Armour Edition online.
Finally, GameStop UK are giving fans high-gloss limited edition posters. These posters will be individually numbered and will come in a tube case.
These pre-order goodies are exclusive to each retailer, and are in extremely limited supply, offered on a first-come-first-served-basis. Namco Bandai suggests that to avoid disappointment, fans are advised to pre-order before January 2014.
