Resident Evil 2 Australian Collector’s Edition Revealed

After staring enviously at the Resident Evil 2 US Collector’s Edition since it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20, Australian (and European) fans have had to wait patiently for their region’s collector’s edition to be unveiled. Thankfully the wait is over, with Capcom tonight revealing the contents of the Australian (and European) collector’s edition for Resident Evil 2.

Those who were hoping for something similar to the US edition will be pleased to know that the Australian edition is almost identical, with Australian version containing the 12″ statue of RE heartthrob and former hair model Leon Kennedy.

However, it’s going to cost you more than an arm and a leg, with JB Hi-Fi listing the CE for pre-order at a whopping $429. No word on when EB Games will have it available for pre-order, but we expect more information to be announced in the coming days.

The Australian Resident Evil 2 Collector’s Edition will include the following items:

    • Steelbook Case (Includes Resident Evil 2 full game)
    • 12” Leon Kennedy Figurine
    • Limited Edition R.P.D. Keys
    • Collector’s Item Box
    • Artbook & Soundtrack CD
    • ‘Made in Heaven’ Pin Badge
    • Poster
    • Deluxe DLC Pack Card:

    o    ‘Original Version’ Soundtrack
    o    Leon Kennedy Costumes: Arklay Sheriff and Noir
    o    Claire Redfield Costumes: Military, Noir and Elza Walker
    o    Deluxe Weapon: Samurai Edge – Albert Model

Resident Evil 2 will release on January 25, 2019, for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
