Pre-order bonuses, as a rule, are pretty scummy. I get that publishers really need that cash now, but providing in-game incentives, some of which are not sold later (or, even crazier, just included in the game — weird, I know), is not good.
It’s hard to get hopping mad about this Project X Zone 2 content though. For pre-ordering, you’ll get a challenge stage, a Sun Sword item, a 3DS theme, and two in-game accessories. Starter items are usually eclipsed after a few hours, and considering the sheer amount of content this sequel promises, I’m not sweating one stage.
So if you want it, it’s there. You have until February 16, 2016 to decide.
