To celebrate the release of its new zombie game Dead Island Riptide, publisher Deep Silver announced a special edition of the game for Europe and Australia. Called the Zomie Bait Edition, the package includes a gory figurine of a dismembered bikini-clad torso.
Check out our previous story to see what it looks like.
Judging from the apology Deep Silver made, it would seem there were a few people out there who didn't like the gruesome tchotchke.
"We deeply apologize for any offense," said the publisher. "We sincerely regret this choice… we are committed to making sure this will never happen again."
What do you think the Deep Silver should do? Do you think it should yank the sucker out of the package or do you think it should go ahead and sell it to whoever wants to buy it. Maybe you think it's only fair that they sell a mutilated male statuette as well. In a Speedo. With a package.
