The lights are on
Resident Evil’s protagonist Leon S. Kennedy has become a pretty stylish guy since moving away from his straight-laced RPD officer duds and altar boy haircut. I guess barely surviving a zombie outbreak awakens a man’s hunger to dress well while enjoying what little we have of this crazy thing called life. Anyway, he had a pretty mean fur/leather coat in Resident Evil 4, and his motorcycle jacket in Resident Evil 6 is looking even more bad-ass. Guess what? You can look just like Leon for the, eh... unique price of $1,300.
Silconera has translated the Japanese-only advertisement for the premium edition of the game, which retails for 105,000 yen. It includes four exclusive tablet covers – one featuring Chris, Leon, Wesker’s son Jake Muller, and a secret character – and, of course, the game itself.
Or, you could just walk into your local mall and buy pretty much the same thing, with enough cash to spare to buy your entire extended family copies of RE 6. But it’s your money, who am I to judge? It does looks pretty warm. And those pockets could problem fit lots of green herbs and spare handgun bullets. Maybe the leather is tough enough to protect against gnashing human teeth. Who knows? It might be the purchase that saves your life.

Leon is the best no doubt about it.
Yeah... how about no...
That is ridiculous.
The Jacket is incredible. The price on the other hand, not so much..
Hahaha I love the sarcasm at the end of this article as some might think its childish I really enjoy the paragraph. I'm thinking the same thing as I read this I mean really who is going to play that to look like the guy from Resident Evil... I dont know there some crazy people out there hahaha.
That's just stupid...
Why would anyone buy that.
Unless that jackets interior is lined with kevlar I'm not interested.
$1300 for a brown leather jacket as seen from RE4? Makes sense.
Wow I wish I had an extra 1300 dollars...
would rather buy a dirt bike for the summer
Its sad because a lot of people will buy this when the coat is probably no better than one in a store that's a tenth of the price. Remember they have to make a profit, so it certainly isn't worth 1300 dollars lol.
Wow. Just wow..........$1300?
I'd rather just give Capcom $1,300,
and they give me RE6.
Scratch that, I would never pay that much for a video game.
wow....can we say over the top.....i can get the same jaket for 50 bucks at the local flee market granted it pleather but who can tell......lol....
I wish I had enough money but then again I would never waste it like that.
I could buy a leather jacket anywhere that would be more to my liking, better made, and less expensive. I honestly don't know who this appeals to.
It's called the internet, But there are people out there that will buy this..
