NAMCO BANDAI Games Announces
Pre-Order Campaign for Dead to Rights: Retribution

Downloadable Content Packs
Available Exclusively for Pre-Orders from Major Retailers

NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc.
announced today a pre-order campaign for Dead to Rights: Retribution for the
Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Customers who pre-order the game from GameStop or will have access to a downloadable pack that provides bonus content
to enhance their experience with the final retail game. Each downloadable pack
will offer players an opportunity to play as modified versions of one of the
game’s main characters, and feature an additional bonus mode that alters the
gameplay experience.

The “Jack Pack,” exclusive to
GameStop in-store or online pre-order customers, features special Grant City
Anti-Crime (GAC) armor for Jack Slate, which provides an increased health boost
as he battles for justice amidst a city in chaos. In addition, a guns-blazing
“action mode” switches up the gameplay with explosive rounds, increasing the
damage and impact of all shots fired. Token cards with redeemable codes will
accompany in-store retail copies of the game, while an electronic code will be
issued for online orders.

Available for pre-orders at, the “Shadow Pack” allows canine companion Shadow to use camouflage
which reduces detection when stalking enemies with his stealth move. This pack
also offers the visually striking “noir mode” where all on-screen graphics are
displayed in black, white and dramatic blood red, further immersing players in
the deep noir themes of the game. Customers will receive a redeemable code
electronically when their game copy is shipped.

Dead to Rights®: Retribution is a
ground-up reinvention of the multi-million unit selling crime action series.
Thrusting players into a mature neo-noir crime drama as vice cop Jack Slate and
his canine companion Shadow, the game introduces an innovative new hybrid combat
system that seamlessly blends third-person shooting with hand-to-hand brawling
and AI partner. Deadly on their own, Jack and Shadow are even more formidable as
they team up to defeat the threats they uncover in Grant City.

Developed by Volatile Games, Dead to
Rights: Retribution will launch for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 system in North
America on April 13, 2010. For more information, please visit or
