Namco Bandai Games America Inc. announced today details on the roster of exclusive incentive items for customers who purchase ENSLAVED: Odyssey to the West from participating retailers. The selection of enticing options ranges from DLC)to limited quantity retail packs that come bundled with the game and bonus item. Additional premium post-launch DLC will also be available and details will be released in the coming months.
Several retailers are offering DLC packs including alternate versions of Monkey or Trip which are not only visually distinct, but also provide unique functional advantages that boost the final retail gameplay experience. For EB Games Canada and GameStop pre-order customers, they will receive a code for deadly, ebony-clad “Ninja Monkey.” With access to unlimited amounts of otherwise rare stun and plasma staff blast ammo, Monkey turns into a bona fide assassin against his enemies. Walmart and Walmart Canada will offer the game with a download code card for “Classic Monkey,” adorned in a striking red and gold ensemble that pays homage to the game’s classic Chinese novel influence. This traditional variant also channels the fearsome warrior-spirit into Monkey’s melee damage, allowing him to strike with double the power. Best Buy U.S. and Canada customers can get the game with a download code card for “Sexy Robot Trip,” a literal mesh of her feminine and technological wiles. This hybrid Trip is both visually and functionally stunning, doubling the duration of all stun moves in the game including Monkey’s ranged stun blasts and melee stun charge attacks, as well as Trip’s own EMP blasts.
Limited quantity bundle packs that include the game and exclusive bonus item are also available from participating retailers. Amazon.com and Amazon.ca customers will have exclusive access to the official soundtrack for the game, which will be offered as part of a limited set of bundles with the game. Future Shop Canada and Target will offer retail packages which include the game and a mini-comic published by renowned entertainment specialist, Marvel. The custom-created 40-page comic book focuses on Monkey and Trip’s origins, with an eye-opening glimpse into their backgrounds which won’t be seen in the game.
