Namco Bandai Partners Australia has announced today that Sleeping Dogs will have an special edition exclusive to ANZ.
The special edition will carry the same price tag as the standard edition, but will be limited stock only. It will see players through 2 new missions, each of which will carry its own outfits and other bonuses, as well as a new signature ‘flying punch’ move for the main protagonist.
Namco has also confirmed an Australian / New Zealand release date of 16th August this year, putting it in a month traditionally known for being a dry spell in the gaming industry, which should see the bold new IP have a significant amount of room to capture a new fan base before the end-of-year rush begins.
The core game sees players navigate a treacherous open-world recreation of Hong Kong, playing as an undercover cop in an action-adventure game with a focus on hand-to-hand combat and old-school brawling mechanics.
Sleeping Dogs will be available on PS3 and 360 for AUD$109.95 or NZD$109.95, or on PC for AUD$89.95 or NZD$99.95.
