Collector’s Edition for Resident Evil 6 Announced, Detailed for Europe

June 25, 2012Written by Alex Osborn

Resident Evil fans in Europe eagerly anticipating the release of the sixth proper installment have much to be excited about, as Capcom has just announced a collector’s edition of RE6 for the region.

The publisher made the announcement on their official site, detailing all of the contents of the robust package, not the least of which is a very sleek zombie steel book. Check out the full list of goodies below:

  • Resident Evil 6 game
  • Zombie Steel Book
  • Exclusive Resident Evil 6 hardback artbook showing concept art from the game
  • Resident Evil 6 Avatar DLC code for 360 owners OR an RE6 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 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. A must have piece for any fan of Resident Evil!
  • All of the above amazing goodies are bundled together in the lenticular ‘Needle Bomb’ collectors box (as seen in the RE6 announce trailer)

However, if you just want the zombie steel book, you’ll be able to purchase a different “limited edition” that won’t cost much more than the standard edition. Speaking of which, Capcom didn’t give any idea of how much the entire collector’s edition will cost, but considering the sheer quantity of stuff that’s in there, it probably won’t be cheap. One thing’s for sure though, it won’t cost as much as Japan’s super-exclusive edition.
