Remember Me pre-order bonuses include art books, flash kicks

Wednesday, 8th May 2013 08:14 GMT By Alex Donaldson

Capcom has confirmed a selection of pre-order bonuses for folks who pre-order their upcoming action-brawler Remember Me – including a selection of cool cross-over nods to the world of Street Fighter.

Those who pre-order with Amazon, Best Buy or Steam will get their hands on a digital bonus in the form of Street Fighter-based preseens – special fighting moves that Nilin can use against her enemies. These include Guile’s Flash Kick, Chun-Li’s Spinning Bird Kick and the infamous Dragon Punch – or Shoryuken as it’s better known.

Pre-ordering at GameStop or EB Games will instead net a more physical bonus in the form of a free 24-page comic book. The book, from Dark Horse, tells a bit of prequel back story to the game and is something of a teaser for a fully-fledged Dark Horse art book that’s in production.

The details were confirmed over on Capcom Unity by Brett Elston, Capcom USA’s Senior Online & Community Manager. There’s no word on if these bonuses will make it to other regions just yet.

Sam posted a bunch of his thoughts and video footage of the game over on our YouTube yesterday – so check those out if you’re still on the fence about the title. It’s due out early next month.

    Pre ordering a brawler game grants you otherwise unaccessable moves? wow this game just died for me.

    They have been screwing the pooch on RM’s pre-order campaign for weeks, now. Their plan is ridiculous, and it looks to be backfiring wholesale.
    There’s nothing remarkable about what they are offering for bonuses. It’s not memorable, serves no purpose – other than now we realise to push an unrelated series that doesn’t need it. Why split attention from RM towards SF?
    The moves themselves, they’re a nice touch to have in the game, don’t get me wrong, but the way it’s been communicated and planned is not good.

    If the writer’s done right with the game itself, I shouldn’t need a promotional comic to fill in backstory – and indeed, it can be argued that it is preferable to learn from playing the game itself, much like the lead character, Nilin is set to do. I want to “support” (i.e. get) what they’re doing here but there’s mixed messaging, and I’m not all that sure how the game stands (will check Sam’s reports to help in that regard) and that almost ambiguity’s enough to hold back on pre-ordering.

    Did you see the moves? These were cheap freebies designed after the fact, no doubt. It’s the same with almost everything. Did you see the hilarious Borderlands 2 stuff, for example? This is how it tends to work, now, since they know that if it didn’t there’d be a massive uproar and a betrayal of consumer trust.

    They’re moves from Street Fighter which will no doubt be cheap, cheerful, and tacky. Much the same as any freebies you get from pre-ordering are. The only people who’ve ever really crossed that line, to my knowledge, are Activision and EA. But then that’s Activision and EA.
