UPDATE: Our friends over at XboxGaming have received word from local distributor Nu Metro that South Africa will be getting copies of this Collector’s Edition in “limited quantities”. Get your pre-order finger ready kids!

Original Story: Pray to god that we get it in South Africa, because everybody’s desk needs a gruff, pensive Batman statue to guard their workspace at night. Everybody’s!

The Batman: Arkham City Collector’s Edition comes loaded with the usual fare that you’ve come to expect from the extra pricy versions. You’ll get that awesome Batman statue, complete with its mini diorama backing and drawer compartment base (the whole thing doubles as the Collector’s Edition packaging); a copy of the game’s soundtrack as a digital download; a hardcover art book; access to the Iceberg Lounge Challenge Map DLC as well as The Dark Knight Returns character skin; a copy of Batman: Gotham Knight animated film. Of course, a copy of the game will be in there somewhere as well.

It looks fantastic, and I especially approve of the way they’ve kept the whole thing black and white with splashes of red, like all the official Arkham City publicity media to date. I must have one. Batman: Arkham City launches on 21 October 2011.
