While the rest of the world will be shooting zombies next month, Japanese gamers are forced to wait until early next year for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles to be released. But it isn't all bad news for our Far East brothers and sisters: Japanese gamers will have the opportunity to purchase a special collector's edition of the game.

According to Siliconera, the collector's edition includes a soundtrack CD labeled Darkside Symphony, a promotional DVD, a (sweet, we guess) reversible cover and the game for 8,390¥ ($91 USD). Also, in the seemingly never-ending world of preorder bonuses, Japanese gamers willing to throw a deposit down for the game will nab a detailed character booklet called the Darkside Report.

No zombie shirt? We win.
