Resident Evil 2 Collector’s Edition Includes Leon Figurine and Item Box Design

By Kelly Packard, 5 months ago
A collector's edition has been announced for Resident Evil 2, the remake of the 1998 game of the same name. So far, the announced edition is exclusive to GameStop and EB Games in North America. With more than 20 years having passed since the original launch of Resident Evil 2, many fans will be willing to shell out for the collectible edition despite its US$199.99 / CAN$239.99 price.

On the outside, the edition looks like one of the item boxes that are strewn about in the game. There is also bonus digital content, a 12-inch Leon Kennedy figurine, an art book, a digital soundtrack and a poster. For more details on all the above, see below.

“Ben’s File” Art Book
  • A 32-page book left behind by Ben Bertolucci, a freelance journalist who makes an appearance in Resident Evil 2. This file contains photos and files documenting events after the Raccoon City tragedy, and was filed away as a highly confidential document by the U.S. government. It's never been seen by the public… until now.

“R.P.D.” Renovation Design Poster
  • A diagram reminiscent of blueprints, this poster illustrates how the building was renovated and transformed from a museum to a police facility when work was being done on the building in 1969.
Details on the European collector's edition will be coming in August. Resident Evil 2 launches January 25th, 2019.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Resident Evil 2 achievements.
