The Xenomorph comes with both the Xenomorph Tail Back Bling and Xeno Menace built-in Emote, and Ripley comes with the Nostromo Crew Outfit variant, and Weyland-Yutani Cat Carrier (complete with Jonesy the Cat).

There’s also the Space Gear Bundle available. The themed Bundle includes the P-500 Power Loader Arm Pickaxe, the Cheyenne Dropship Glider, and a new emote that features a Llama bursting from Ripley’s chest.

This is just the latest cross-over for the game, as just last week, Ryu and Chun-Li from Street Fighter were added to the Item Shop. Ryu came with his traditional white gi, black belt, and red headband or you could choose a Battle variant and there’s also a built-in Shoryuken emote.

Chun-Li also came with two outfits: the Chun-Li Outfit and Nostalgia Variant and features the Lightning Kick emote.
