OK, it’s not actually called that but a Collector’s Edition of the upcoming 6th (if you don’t count the other 17) game in the Resident Evil franchise has just been announced!
The Resident Evil Collector’s Edition will include the standard retail game housed in a Zombie Steel Book. In addition to this, fans will also be treated to:
- Exclusive RE6 hardback artbook showing concept art from the game
- Avatar DLC code for 360 owners OR an exclusive Dynamic Theme for PS3 owners
- Ivy University, Tall Oaks hooded sweatshirt (one size)
- The RE6 forces emblems – High quality enamelled zinc alloy emblems of the three main protagonists (Leon, Chris & Jake) squad insignias, mounted and set in a limited numbered frame authenticated with signatures from Senior producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi , Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and RE6 Director Eiichiro Sasaki
- All of the above amazing goodies are bundled together in the ‘Needle Bomb’ collectors box (as seen in the RE6 announce trailer) with lenticular images
Will I pick it up? The game definitely, as I was a huge fan of RE5. In fact it’s one of my favourite games on the Xbox 360, mostly due to it’s incredibly intense couch co-op.
Will I pick up the Collector’s Edition? Maybe, the art book, emblems and hoodie are cool but everything else is just filler. So ultimately like most things it will come down to price… which has yet to be announced.
A limited number of the Resident Evil 6: Collector’s Editions will be available for pre-order in Australia through EB Games and JB Hi-Fi.
