Japanese Resident Evil fans can start saving up now for one of the coolest, and most expensive, collector’s editions ever seen. Break that piggy-bank and pre-order while the RE2 Remake CE is still available.

It must be hard to think up what to put in some game’s collector’s editions, when the game’s setting doesn’t really lend itself to anything useful or obvious. Which is presumably why so many just give up and throw in a cheap-looking statute. Red Dead Redemption II was mocked by some fans for including a jigsaw puzzle in its collector’s edition. But the one for Resident Evil 2 is a lot cooler: it comes with a Bluetooth keyboard that looks like the typewriters from the game. As any Resi fan will know, the old school Lexington typewriters were used to save your data in the game, as long as you had an ink ribbon with you.

And that also comes with the special edition: although it’s only masking tape. That is pretty cool. A European collector’s edition hasn’t been announced yet but the America one comes with a Leon S. Kennedy statue, art book, and item box; which is also listed on Capcom’s Japanese website as the ‘Z Version’. The keyboard alone costs the equivalent of £530, while it’s available in a bundle with just the game for £590 or as a combination with the Z Version called the Premium Edition. Which costs the equivalent of almost £710.

Long awaited by fans

The Resident Evil 2 Remake might have finally been announced by Capcom merely a few years ago, but it’s already shaping up to be one of the more exciting horror games in recent memory. In this Resident Evil 2 everything we know guide, we’ll be walking you through all the confirmed details you need to know so far about Capcom’s horror remake, including the final Resident Evil 2 release date in January 2019, all the Resident Evil 2 gameplay that we’ve both seen and played for ourselves so far, as well as the full list of Resident Evil 2 PC specs, which could be a handful if you want the game running at full capacity. 

Everyone’s pretty excited about the upcoming RE2 Remake, and from what we’ve played so far, there’s good reason to be. We’ll be keeping this guide on the Resident Evil 2 Remake entirely up to date with all the latest information about the game, right up until it releases near the beginning of 2019. 

Just below, you can check out the RE2 Remake trailer, which was a bit of a surprise when it was debuted back at E3 2018. Nobody expected the remake to look quite as impressive, and even more impressive was the release date of January 25, 2019. We’ve got no idea how Capcom managed to turn around this game so quickly, and it looks downright stunning.

The Resident Evil 2 Remake was announced by Capcom back in 2015, after long time fans of the horror franchise had repeatedly appealed to Capcom for a remake of the game.
