Ubisoft, via The Assassins Creed Experience Twitter page, has posted a picture of the PS3 version of the Assassin’s Creed II “Master Assassin’s Edition,” which will be available exclusively at GameStop in the US and Canada. The Tweet doesn’t mention any specifics on the contents, pricing or other platforms, and there doesn’t seem to be a product listing at GameStop yet, but judging from the picture the LE appears to include an art book, bonus disc, Ezio figurine and collectible box. The image also advertises a pre-order deal for two exclusive bonus maps.

Looks like a sweet collector’s edition. Hopefully the price is right!
