Capcom Reveals $1,300 Resident Evil 6 Premium Edition

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.
