Unusual Resident Evil 6 bonus

Capcom may be up for an award to win the most unusual pre-order bonus gift with Resident Evil 6, when it arrives at the beginning of October. The developer has recently announced that they will be offering a very cool looking Umbrella Corporation umbrella with all RE 6 pre-orders through the Capcom web store.

As you can see from the image above, it looks pretty nice doesn’t it and definitely something which we wouldn’t mind rocking ourselves when the heavens open. Believe it or not, Capcom appears to have a fetish for the physical umbrella, as it isn’t the first time that they have given away umbrellas as free items.

The company also had a Resident Evil 4 umbrella to give away way back in the days of the Nintendo GameCube, although that one definitely isn’t as sexy as the one you see above. If you’re interested in getting hold of one, you better act soon as Capcom has said on their blog that supplies are already limited.

The downside is that you’ll have to pay the full $59.99 retail price on Capcom’s web store, but this is the only place that you’ll be able to pick up an Umbrella umbrella. Having said that, those of you who have already pre-ordered the game elsewhere but still want the umbrella – there is a solution for you.

We’ve noticed in the collectibles section of Capcom’s web store, the umbrella is available separately for a price of $16.95. The status at the moment though is backordered, so hopefully Capcom are working on getting more stock in asap. Do you wish more developers came up with more unusual pre-order bonuses like this?

What is the most unusual item that you’ve ever received from pre-ordering a game? Resident Evil 6 is out October 2nd.
