Collector’s Edition for Resident Evil 6 announced for Europe

RE 6

Capcom just announced the Collector’s Edition for Resident Evil 6 for Europe. What about the rest of the world you say? No word yet, but hopefully this package is available worldwide because any Resident Evil fan would love the contents. Here’s what you get in Resident Evil 6′s Collector’s Edition.

  • Resident Evil 6 Game
  • Zombie Steel Book
  • Exclusive RE6 hardback artbook showing concept art from the game
  • Resident Evil 6 Avatar DLC code for 360 owners OR a Resident Evil 6 Dynamic Theme for PS3 owners
  • Ivy University, Tall Oaks hooded sweatshirt (one size)
  • ‘The Resident Evil 6 forces emblems’ – High quality enamelled zinc alloy emblems of the three main protagonists squad insignias, mounted and set in a limited numbered frame authenticated with signatures from Senior producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi , Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and Resident Evil 6 Director Eiichiro Sasaki.  A must have piece for any fan of Resident Evil.
  • All of the above amazing goodies are bundled together in the lenticular ‘Needle Bomb’ collectors box

Man, I’d take the sweatshirt any day. Then again, I do live in a tropical country so that’s a bad idea.

Resident Evil 6 Anthology and Archives

There is also a Resident Evil Anthology spotted in the wild. Amazon is again advertising products not officially announced by the company providing them. For the PS3 version of the bundle, it will include: Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil: Director’s Cut, Resident Evil 2, Resident Evil 3, Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition and Resident 4 HD.

Since Xbox doesn’t have the first three games, the Xbox 360 version will include: Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition, Resident Evil 4 HD, Code Veronica HD, and a copy of CGI film Resident Evil Degeneration.

So what’s better the Collector’s Edition or the Resident Evil Archives? I’d go for the Archives, if it ever gets officially announced. Archives will go for 89.99 and that’s a lot of Resident Evil games for that price, not to mention you get the new one too. The Collector’s Edition has yet to be priced.
