Earlier this month, Capcom gave us a first in-depth look at the gameplay for the next Resident Evil Village in addition to a detailed presentation of the different collector’s editions available worldwide. Japan, however, has taken an already impressive Collector’s Edition and made it even better – at least for those with $ 1,800 to spare.
The Collector’s Edition of the full set comes with the standard Chris Redfield statue, commemorative box, art book, and more, but it also comes with a portable replica of Chris’s coat. This chic style can be yours, but it will cost you dearly, as this particular set sells for $ 1,800 (or 192,500 yen in Japan).
This isn’t the first time Capcom has done this, especially when it comes to the Resident Evil franchise. Resident Evil 6 also saw an expensive collector’s edition in Japan, but with Leon Kennedy’s jacket. This set costs players $ 1,300, which is slightly more affordable than its Resident Evil Village counterpart.
While the jacket certainly looks well made, which equates to a higher price tag, it’s not exactly the most unique. Leon’s jacket was iconic, but this? This is just a gray pea coat. But, as an avid collector, who am I to judge? If that makes you happy, you can shoot your photo by grabbing one on the right here.
As for the game itself, the PS5-specific demo is now available appreciate. As for the full adventure release, Resident Evil Village will launch on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on May 7, 2021. Thoughts on the most expensive Collector’s Edition seen above and this that we’ve seen so far from Resident Evil Village?
