Japan-Exclusive Resident Evil 2 Premium Edition Costs $900+, Comes With a Keyboard

Spending $100, $200, or sometimes more on one video game’s collector’s edition definitely feels like an expensive endeavor. But if you really want to go all out on a single game, Capcom is offering the Biohazard Re:2 Premium Edition in Japan for a whopping 107,784 yen ($972). For those unaware, Biohazard Re:2 is Resident Evil 2’s Japanese name.

You’re probably wondering what you get for all of that money. The main attraction is the Biohazard Re:2 Qwertywriter S Lexington Typewriter Bluetooth Keyboard. Basically, it’s a wireless keyboard that is based off of the Lexington typewriter that appears in the game. You will also receive a complete set of four physical ink ribbons. Ink ribbons are a resource used with a typewriter in the original Resident Evil 2 in order to save your progress.

Added to this, this edition also comes with all of the contents from the previously announced Collector’s Edition, which includes:

  • Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition
    • Full Game
    • Special Deluxe Packaging
    • Extra DLC Pack Card
      • Give Leon and Claire a new look or a blast from the past with unique costumes:
        • Leon Costume: “Arklay Sheriff”
        • Leon Costume: “Noir”
        • Claire Costume: “Military”
        • Claire Costume: “Noir”
        • Claire Costume: “Elza Walker”
    • Ensure the undead stay undead with a special weapon
      • Deluxe Weapon: “Samurai Edge – Albert Model”
    • And bring on the nostalgia with classic tunes:
      • “Original Version” Soundtrack Swap
  • Leon S. Kennedy (R.P.D. Version) Figure
    • An expertly-crafted 12-inch figure of Leon on his first day in his new RPD police uniform, re-created to mirror his in-game design down to the smallest details. A must-have for any Resident Evil fan or collector!
  • “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.
  • Digital Soundtrack
    • A voucher code for a 25-track album featuring new songs from the remake of Resident Evil 2, as well as a selection of arrangements from the original game.
  • “R.P.D.” Renovation Design Poster
    • A diagram reminiscent of blueprints, this poster illustrates how the building was renovated and transformed from a museum to a police facility when work was being done on the  building in 1969.

Those looking to empty their savings account can purchase the Biohazard Re:2 Premium Edition exclusively on the e-Capcom online store. It is only available for PlayStation 4.
