Capcom announced yet another custom edition for the upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake today.
The Steel Book Edition will be only available in European markets. Aside from the special case, players get access to a special costume for Claire Redfield. This version is basically the next step for throwing money at this game beyond the standard version. The Steel Book edition will be a physical release for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
And while it’s not as insane as the Collector’s Edition with a Leon Kennedy statue, or as clearly over-the-top as the $900 Limited Edition with a keyboard made to look like a typewriter, it’s still great to see Capcom offering lots of options to fans of the games.
That costume is a reference to Elza Walker, the long-lost main character from the unreleased version of RE2, affectionately known to fans as Resident Evil 1.5. Check out more details about the Elza Walker costume if you want.
Resident Evil 2 is scheduled for release on PS4, PC, and Xbox One on January 25, 2019. There’s also a Deluxe Edition for the US that features a host of additional costumes for both Leon and Claire. Check out the teaser for the Steel Book Edition down below.
