TAKE THAT, EUROPE! That sound you’re not hearing right now is me doing a little jig on my desk. Not because Europe isn’t getting access to this Limited Edition without importing, but because I’m a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed franchise, and I love…sorry, I LOVE really well put together limited editions of games that interest me.

The Assassin’s Creed III Limited Edition comes bundled with:
- Assassin’s Creed III video game on the platform of your choice
- 9.44″ statue of protagonist Connor (Ratonhnhaké:ton) in an action pose with an American Colonial flag flying behind him
- Embroidered 28″ x 48″ Assassin’s Creed themed Colonial flag (a limited number of these flags were sent out to certain press sites over the last week, the lucky bastards)
- 3″ x 3.25″ metal belt buckle (I’m neither a cowboy nor a hipster, so I probably won’t actually wear the oversized belt buckle, but it will look nice on a shelf)
The GameStop exclusive mission and weapon available for pre-orders of the normal version of Assassin’s Creed III will also be available for pre-orders of the Limited Edition.
