Updated July 27, 2018: If you've been looking to pick up the Resident Evil 2 collector's edition, preorders are now back in stock at GameStop.

Recently, a Resident Evil 2 remake was announced at the PlayStation E3 2018 event. Unfortunately, it was unclear if the game was a PlayStation 4 exclusive or coming to other platforms. Luckily, we reached out to Capcom and the team provided us with confirmation that Resident Evil 2 was indeed coming to Xbox One on January 25, 2019 with Xbox One X enhancements in tow.

Today, Capcom announced an extremely special Collector's Edition for the game. According to the company, Resident Evil 2: Collector's Edition is the ultimate Resident Evil 2 experience and is designed as a reproduction of the familiar item boxes that shown up throughout Raccoon City. The package contains the following items.

  • Resident Evil 2: Deluxe Edition
  • Item Box packaging
  • Leon Kennedy figure
  • "Ben's File" book
  • Digital soundtrack
  • "R.P.D." poster

Now comes the price. The Collector's Edition will set you back $199.99 and it's only available at GameStop in North America. Select retailers will also carry in other territories.

Resident Evil 2 originally launched in 1998 and is considered a cult classic. The title features tense exploration and puzzle-solving gameplay that are staples in the series even to this day. For those unfamiliar with the story, players join rookie police officer Leon Kennedy and college student Claire Redfield, who are thrust together by a disastrous outbreak in Raccoon City. The illness transforms the population into deadly zombies who just want to kill. Both Leon and Claire have their own playable campaigns, allowing gamers to see the story from a different point of view.
