Just Cause 2 players will get a little bonus in Sleeping Dogs

Square Enix and United Front Games announced today a fun little bonus for those you picking up Sleeping Dogs that have also played through Just Cause 2 on the same console. If Sleeping Dogs detects a Just Cause 2 save file, you’ll unlock a new outfit taken straight from the closet of Just Cause 2’s protagonist Rico Rodriguez. A pretty fitting look, as Sleeping Dogs open world game play looks to be just about as crazy and cool as the stuff found in Just Cause 2, but with maybe a few less explosions.

Check out a couple shots of the outfit in the game, and the full press release below.
