We live in an age over-the-top collector's video game is a common thing. It's no surprise to see versions of games that cost a few hundred dollars or more and include everything from mini statues to movie DVDs to a bunch of useless crap. Nevertheless, Premium Edition of the forthcoming Resident Evil 2 Remake for Japan is beyond ridiculous. It contains a Bluetooth keyboard and is priced at a jerky $ 900.
Officially named Biohazard RE: 2 Z Version Premium Edition in Japan, the set's main feature is a mechanical keyboard designed to look like a traditional Lexington typewriter, which is iconic for the early Resident Evil titles, as they acted as storage games in the game. The keyboard is full-size, using premium Cherry Blue key switches, and is said to have a seven-day battery life. Even the design is functional, with the lever as an additional Enter key, and the paper feeder button is used to scroll up and down.
While the keyboard Resident Evil is compatible with Windows, MacOS, iOS and Android, it's actually just a customized keyboard keypad keyboard from Qwerkywriter, which sells on its own for $ 250. $ 900 Premium Edition has much more than just a keyboard, but. There is a copy of the game, DLC pass, audio track CD, art book, post and a 12-inch statue by hero Leon Kennedy. With the exception of the keyboard, all of the above is included in the game's standard collector edition, priced at around $ 240.
This means that buyers basically pay over $ 650 extra for the keyboard. Of course, Resident Evil fans who do not mind paying that price but do not even want to bother with the game are lucky, for the keyboard is sold separately for around $ 675.
The Biohazard RE: 2 Z Version Premium Edition is currently exclusive to Capcom's Japanese online store, priced at 99,800 yen ($ 900). Although it is a safe bet, this package will not come aside, the more reasonable collector edition and content will be available in the US for $ 200. Resident Evil 2 Remake is scheduled for release January 25, 2019 , for PS4, Xbox One and PC.
