This Resident Evil 2 Collector's Edition Goes Old School With a Typewriter

The information regarding the highly anticipated Resident Evil 2 Remake continues to come pouring in and many horror fans can't wait to see all of the delicious reworks Capcom has in store for our beloved franchise. The information about the absolutely amazing Collector's Edition also keeps coming. Though the stateside version comes with an amazing Leon statue, the folks over at Japan are taking a slightly more unusual approach. Spoiler: That means a typewriter.

The Japan version comes with a vintage typewriter Bluetooth keyboard (which retails in US dollars for a whopping 675 dollars!) that brings tons of nostalgic memories from the franchise as a whole ... just with a modern twist. The Premium Edition for this specific region comes with the following:

  • Raccoon Police Station Poster
  • A copy of Biohazard RE: 2 (Called simply Resident Evil here)
  • Extra DLC pack product code
  • Leon S. Kennedy Statue
  • Art book and Soundtrack CD
  • Four typewriter ink ribbons

Though this is only available for Japan, the need for it is mighty! Though to be fair, our collector's edition is pretty swanky as well. You can see the NA/EU Collector's Edition for yourself with our previous coverage right here, but here's what that edition includes:

Leon S. Kennedy (R.P.D. Version) Figure

"Ben's File" Art Book

- A 32-page book left behind by Ben Bertolucci, a freelance journalist who makes an appearance in Resident Evil 2. This file contains photos and files documenting events after the Raccoon City tragedy, and was filed away as a highly confidential document by the U.S. government. It's never been seen by the public… until now.

"R.P.D." Renovation Design Poster
