Tenacious D in-game guitar if you pre-order

News posted by Ryan on May 6th, 2009 at 4:38pm GMT

Tenacious D guitarIf you were kind of thinking about pre-ordering Brutal Legend rather than waiting to pick it up once it hits the shops, there’s now one massive incentive to do it via GameStop: an epic guitar that can be used instead of Clementine, built from the demonic force of Tenacious D.

The exclusive Tenacious D guitar features:

  1. New sound effects
  2. New voice-over work from Jack Black and Kyle Gass
  3. New visual effects suite

Clearly you have no option but to go and pre-order Brutal Legend right now. You may also want to check out a screenshot of the guitar.

An interesting tidbit revealed by this news is that there’ll presumably be an in-game way to switch between Clementine and the Tenacious D guitar. Possible implication that there’ll be many more to find and use throughout the game?

I am absolutely in love in The D, this is an AWESOME preorder gift, dare I say one of the best ever? Just because of how well it fits!

2. Udvarnoky 13 years, 3 months ago

I’m confused…it’s an in-game guitar and Gamestop gives you an unlock code for it?

I’m hoping this guitar is given with pre-orders from Ebgames in Canada as well, cause I’ve had the game pre-ordered since back when the game was being put out by Sierra.

The voice overs for the guitar should be funny.

DAMN IT! I have had mine paid for, for over a year. That was when a Brutal Legend t-shirt would be given for each pre-order. DAMN F***ING EA! I had been waiting over a year for that shirt, a real life item not just a stinking add on to the game. I understand most see this as kick ass, but I only have cash and can’t order the t-shirt even if I have the money needed for it. I thought not only would I get a kick ass shirt (both the Name T and the Eddie Rocking version are available and Brutal Legend related thought was possible) of Double Fine I would get it without the worry of never getting it. (Problem when sending cash threw the mail it is all hopes and dreams.) DAMN YOU EA FOR CRUSHING MY DREAMS!

this… is… F***ING AWESOME!!!!!!!!
consider it pre-ordered as of NOW!

PS- what do they mean with the guitar having new voice over work from JB/KG??? sorry for the apparently dumb question =P thanks in advance!

8. Kroms 13 years, 3 months ago

Not sure yet. Errr…the guitar talks?

9. Lord Lui 13 years, 3 months ago

HAHAHAHAHA!! that’s what i understood from it too… but it cant be that, can it??

10. Coggs 13 years, 3 months ago

Thats what I figured, that the guitar will talk.

11. Ryan BRUTAL! Staff 13 years, 3 months ago

Heh, Mykal. :(

Just watch as another company like Best Buy comes out with another exclusive item. Something similar to that happened with Psychonauts, meaning if you wanted both exclusive t-shirts you had to buy the game twice.

I guess it’s just business. GameStop would have been willing to pay for something special, and Double Fine delivered.

12. Mykal 13 years, 3 months ago

I know, just something that pisses me off. It is just something small I am pissed off at is all cause I was looking for it and it got changed. I was as pissed when the release date got changed. Something you will get use to, just still sucks that it happen is all.

13. J-Weed 13 years, 3 months ago

Is it only if you pre-order from gamestop? because the only real game retailer’s in NZ are EB games and they don’t even have brutal legend listed…

14. Kroms 13 years, 3 months ago

Sadly yes, J-Weed.

15. Coggs 13 years, 3 months ago

Ummm, EB Games and Gamestop are the basically the same company EB Games is owned by Gamestop as a division of Gamestop. As far as I know you get the same thing if your pre-order from either store. We used to have an EB Games at our mall and we always got the same stuff that you got if you preordered from Gamestop. However, now the changed the signs to offically make it into a Gamestop as opposed to an EB Games.

16. Ryan BRUTAL! Staff 13 years, 3 months ago

I think it’s very probable the offer will make it into other territories, but I’ve not seen anything confirming it yet. If anyone does spot their local stores offering it with the bonus, let me know as I’ll want to incorporate that into an ordering information section I’m going to do.

17. tredlow 13 years, 3 months ago

What character will KG play?

18. Snakeproof 13 years, 1 month ago

From what ive read the guitar talks to you and you play tenacious d songs that incorporate their voice into the game

I pre ordered the game so i look forward to the D’s guitar

19. Hastor 12 years, 11 months ago

I pre-ordered a long time ago. I had to go ask for a code, and realized when I got home that it was just an early demo code. Are they giving out codes for the guitar yet, or are those when you pick the game up?

20. Metalkitten 12 years, 10 months ago

Is the guitar code being given away in pre orders in the UK?

21. Potatoe sam 12 years, 10 months ago

yar kitten it be

eddie plays with himself

22. Lovecraft Rides 12 years, 10 months ago

Metalkitten, if you preorder from Gamestation in the UK, they have the guitar code exclusively. I know this because i have done it, Oh yeah! The D is coming home!!!!!!! \m/

23. Mykal 12 years, 10 months ago

Metal Beast I believe is what you are thinking of. http://brutallegend.wikia.com/wiki/Metal_Beast as the Brutal Legend Wiki says. Though I hope they are wrong since Metal Meows is my favorite possibility for them.

24. Greg 12 years, 10 months ago

i cant find the guitar and nothing on web shows where its at!

25. jack 12 years, 10 months ago

if you find it let me know

26. ThorofAsgard 12 years, 10 months ago

Go to the Motorforge. You can change guitars there.

27. Potatoe sam 12 years, 10 months ago

yeh but did anyone get it?

28. Potatoe sam 12 years, 10 months ago

KG plays kyle the cannonier theres a video on youtube

29. Juggalo Taco 12 years, 8 months ago

I preordered the game and they didn’t give me the code for the ps3. I am extremely pissed. Can you give me the code please cause i payed extra money for the code as in $65 instead of $59.99

30. Ryan BRUTAL! Staff 12 years, 8 months ago

Sorry to hear that Juggalo, however this is a fan site so unfortunately I can’t have extra codes dispensed to you. I recommend shooting a tweet to the official Brutal Legend Twitter page — they may be willing to quickly send you a new one to make up for GameStop’s mistake.

31. Shannel 12 years, 8 months ago

I had the same problem… the code I was given by Gamestop did nothing more than give me a week’s early access to the demo.

32. omagoden's bitch 12 years, 7 months ago

i thought since it said it was an in game guitar that eventually you unlock it. now im hoping that they release it as a game add on.
cause a really REALLY WANT IT!
