Hitman: Absolution Professional Edition Announced…For Europe Only

Square Enix revealed today their Limited Professional Edition for Hitman: Absolution, scheduled to release sometime this year. Before you get too excited about this edition, be advised that this is for Europe only.

From Square Enix's announcement:

Featuring a premium hardcover Art Book with a foreword from Game Director Tore Blystad, and an exclusive behind-the-scenes “making of” video, all packaged up in a clamshell box that looks as sharp as Agent 47 does in his suit, the Professional Edition is the ultimate way to experience the living, breathing world of Hitman: Absolution.
 
Hitman: Absolution Professional Edition also includes advanced access to a range of in-game Agency Weapons, giving the Original Assassin a deadly edge over his enemies from the outset. The Agency Jagd P22G pistol will suit the silent assassins, whilst the Agency HX UMP SMG and the Agency SPS 12 semi-automatic shotgun will give Agent 47 the power to fight his foes head on.

It's always possible that the Professional Edition will come stateside, but Square Enix has rarely done so in the past. I'm still bitter that I couldn't get a Crisis Core PSP to release over here. 

Grumble, grumble...
