Capcom is putting together a fancy-pants collector’s edition for Resident Evil 2. The big-ticket items? A 12″ Leon Kennedy figure in his Raccoon Police Department gear and a 32-page “Ben’s File” art book.

Look at this spread:

Resident Evil 2 collector's edition

  • Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition
    • Full Game
    • Special Deluxe Packaging
    • Extra DLC Pack Card
      • Give Leon and Claire a new look or a blast from the past with unique costumes:
        • Leon Costume: “Arklay Sheriff”
        • Leon Costume: “Noir”
        • Claire Costume: “Military”
        • Claire Costume: “Noir”
        • Claire Costume: “Elza Walker”
    • Ensure the undead stay undead with a special weapon
      • Deluxe Weapon: “Samurai Edge – Albert Model”
    • And bring on the nostalgia with classic tunes:
      • “Original Version” Soundtrack Swap
  • Leon S. Kennedy (R.P.D. Version) Figure
    • An expertly-crafted 12-inch figure of Leon on his first day in his new RPD police uniform, re-created to mirror his in-game design down to the smallest details. A must-have for any Resident Evil fan or collector!
  • “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.
  • Digital Soundtrack
    • A voucher code for a 25-track album featuring new songs from the remake of Resident Evil 2, as well as a selection of arrangements from the original game.
  • “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.

If you’re in Europe, expect to hear details about a similar collector’s edition next month. As for pricing, the set comes in at $199.99 USD / $239.99 CAD and it’s exclusive to GameStop and EB Games.

I like the police station poster, but I think I’ll stick with the Deluxe Edition, thanks. That’s a more reasonable (but still not exactly cheap) $69.99. I need those costumes and the original soundtrack.

Capcom also shared the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One box art for Resident Evil 2.
