During a panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Capcom announced that its upcoming survival horror game, Resident Evil 2, will be getting a collector’s edition as well as a deluxe edition in North America. The company also detailed preorder bonuses you can nab with the game on release date.
The deluxe edition will come with a host of downloadable goodies, while the collector’s edition will come with the deluxe edition contents plus some extra physical items. The main attraction of the collector’s edition is a 12-inch figure of one of the game’s main characters, Leon S. Kennedy. Preorders of either edition will come with two deluxe weapons: “Samurai Edge – Chris Model” and “Samurai Edge – Jill Model.”
Here are the full contents of the collector’s edition:
