Resident Evil 6 EU Collector’s Edition announced
Considering the Japan only edition is 105,000 yen which converts to a staggering £817, hopefully the prices for this edition will be easier on our wallets.
As stated on Capcom Europe’s official site , the collector’s edition will contain the following:
- Resident Evil 6 game
- A zombie steel book
- An exclusive hardback artbook which contains concept art from the game
- A dynamic theme (I personally hope for one with Chris flexing his muscles and winking at me, hehe)
- A hooded sweatshirt based on the in-game Ivy University in Tall Oaks, so far there is no word on size but only one size will be offered to all
- ‘The RE6 forces emblems’ based on the three main protagonists squad insignias which will be mounted in a limited numbered frame authenticated with signatures by the producer, senior producer and director of Resident Evil 6. These will be great for collector’s and I would love to have them on display!
- All of these great goodies will be bundled together in a lenticular ‘Needle Bomb’ collector’s box as seen in the image below
It can currently be pre-ordered in Germany at Gamestop but so far there is no word on where or when it will be available for pre-order in the UK, Spain, France, Italy or Australia.
There will also be a steel book version of the game which you can pre-order now across all retail partners and it will cost around the same price as the standard version.
Despite the announcement listing the UK and French retailers as “To Be Confirmed,” the page links to GAME.co.uk and Amazon.fr, a clear hint that these are the websites that will exclusively offer them.
Will you be getting the collector’s edition, steel book, standard version of the game or not at all? Let us know in the comments!
