The header image you see above depicts an exact replica of the bonus you’ll receive if you pre-order Resident Evil 6 through the Capcom Store. That’s right, you won’t get some bonus DLC like a strong weapon or alternate character skin; no, you’ll get an umbrella!
I’m a big fan of wacky pre-order incentives, and while Capcom hasn’t exactly been my favorite company as of late, I have to admit this whole umbrella thing is pretty interesting. But as you can tell, this isn’t just some plain water protection device. This umbrella resembles the Umbrella Corporation’s logo, and it even says “Umbrella” on there! That should make it easier for you to find it on those wet, rainy days.
Seriously, though, this is a pretty offbeat pre-order bonus. But hey, that’s fine, because it should be. I remember when companies used to hand out insane items to gamers who pre-ordered their games. I mean, to this day my favorite pre-order bonus is still that awesome Scribblenauts rooster hat.
So, will you be pre-ordering Resident Evil 6 through the Capcom Store? I’ll be honest, I probably won’t because I’m not really looking forward to that game. But if you are, you should totally snag this umbrella.
