Resident Evil 2 Gets $900+ Premium Edition in Japan Including a… Keyboard

Resident Evil Remake 2's Japanese Special Edition Is Awesome

Not the first time Capcom has gone insane with their Collector's Editions, Resident Evil 6 also had one priced around $1000. The keyboard is also available without the game for 81,000 yen taxes included.

The upcoming Resident Evil 2 remake is receiving an official Lexington typewriter USB keyboard with the Japanese Premium Edition of the game, and it will only set you back about $900 US. The keyboard is full-size, uses premium Cherry blue keyswitches, and is said to have a seven-day battery life.

Capcom says it's made of aluminum alloy, adding that the return bar functions as the enter key and the paper knob can be used to adjust volume or scroll on a page.

While the Resident Evil keyboard is compatible with Windows, MacOS, iOS, and Android, it's actually just a custom version of the typewriter-inspired keyboards from Qwerkywriter, which sell on their own for $250. Those who spend almost $1,000 to purchase the Premium Edition will get all four. There's a copy of the game, DLC pass, soundtrack CD, art book, post, and a 12-inch statue of hero Leon Kennedy.

This means buyers are basically paying over $650 extra for the keyboard.

If you're just after the keyboard, you can opt for one of the keyboard manufacturer Qwerkywriter's other models, all of which lack the price markup of this "Resident Evil" edition. Naturally, some will be satisfied to just buy the base content, but many fans will definitely want the option to splurge on special versions of the game to grow their collection of memorabilia, so the publisher and developer will be giving its Japanese audience the chance to do so with a $900 Premium Edition.

Resident Evil 2 releases for PC, PS4 and Xbox One on January 25, 2019.
