Swag of note: Lost Planet and Phoenix Wright
I thought it might be fun to start taking an occasional look at some of the goofy stuff I get in the mail from various publishers, video game and otherwise.
Well, it'll be fun for me at any rate.
A recent package from Capcom came with two little oddities. First up is this promotional item:
This little mech suit on skis is taken from Capcom's new game, "Lost Planet." I haven't had a chance to check the game out yet (I hope to start tomorrow), so I can't tell you much about the figure. Just that it's a "vital suit" and it came included with the game if you preordered it (I think you can still get it if you purchase it from EBgames.com).
I must admit he does look kind of keen. I wonder if they plan on releasing a full line of figures from the game?
More significant to me though was this little tie in item to the new lawyer-cum-mystery Phoenix Wright game: "Justice for All":
Yes, that is indeed a finger-shaped pointer for the DS, complete with wrist-strap and little spongy Japanese exclamation (I'm guessing it says "Objection" though it could also say "Hold It" I suppose).
I'm pretty psyched about this little doo-dad. Now I can point at my wife and kids and yell "Objection!" all day long. Finding a new way to annoy your family is always a cause for celebration!
