Earlier this week, Capcom let the cat out of bag with the official reveal of the PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii U versions of Resident Evil: Revelations and to mark the occasion, the company has announced a trio of special Collector’s Editions.
The first comes with the standard collector’s items including a soundtrack CD and BSAA card case, and of course the game itself. This bundle will only set Japanese gamers back 7,490 yen (that’s about $83).
The second option is the fancy “Unveiled Edition”, which is priced at 42,000 yen (roughly $467). Wow. Now that’s a pretty penny! What are the cool items that bring about this hefty price tag? Well, you get the game, the soundtrack, the card case, and Jill Valentine’s watch…and that’s it. Wow. That’s quite a downgrade from Leon’s jacket.
To be fair, the watch is made by US Agency and it’s cool and slick (and it has numbers that glow in the dark, neato!) but it doesn’t appear to be the kind of thing Resident Evil (or BioHazard in this example) fans will pay an additional $384 for, unless they happen to be insanely hardcore collectors. Now Jill’s hat from the first game on the other hand… wouldn’t be worth the $384 either but it’d be a much cooler item, at least in my opinion.
The third option is the “Unveiled Edition” without the card case or soundtrack, and it’ll only cost collectors 39,900 yen ($443). Well, that’s slightly cheaper.
There’s no word on whether or not these collector’s items will leave Japan but I guess we’ll find out before the May 21 launch.
So g1s, would any of you be willing pay up the $467 to get your hands on Jill’s fancy watch?
