All-in-One Heavy Rain: Special Edition Arrives Next Week

$29.99 nabs you the full game, plus some bonus features.

I'm still pissed the game never explained what was happening during those weird blackouts.

If you missed out on Heavy Rain last year, Sony’s prepped a special edition that’s arriving next week, complete with Move support, the one and only episodic add-on (future installments were ditched in favor of adding Move), and some other bonus features to round things out.

The whole package will only set you back $29.99.

Say what you will about what Heavy Rain did wrong--and it did plenty wrong--but I’m still encouraged to see designers like David Cage trying to do something different. Games can’t get it right until they get it wrong, and maybe Cage isn’t the guy to make that kind of storytelling click, but it felt like a step in the right direction. I’ll play whatever he does next.
