Come on, own up: who doesn't want to own Chris Redfield's coat? We know you've all been waiting for the opportunity to splash the cash on the Resident Evil character's getup, and now the opportunity has finally arrived with a Resident Evil Village collector's edition that'll only set you back $1,800. It's a bit of a bargain, but since this version of the game is only being offered in Japan at 192,500 yen, delivery charges will see that price rise a little bit more.
Alongside the stylish garment, you'll get all the other items included in the standard collector's edition. That includes a statue of the man himself, a poster featuring the in-game map, a box, artbook, and steelbook. Capcom plans to flog all of that stuff at $219, which means the developer reckons Chris Redfield's coat is worth in the region of $1,580! That's certainly a high price, as the Resident Evil 4 Merchant would put it.

As much as I like Resident Evil, I fail to see how this is in any way a bargain. Minus the collectors edition items, that means you're paying around $1500-1600 for a no name, unbranded coat where by the quality status is questionable.
You could buy a $1500 coat from one of the finest coat vendors in the world at that price.
This is a great example of a company taking advantage of the most fervent and dedicated fans shelling out way over the value of the items, just because it's limited in quantity.
It had better come with a pocket full of steroids
This would go well with my "iconic" Aiden Pierce Watchdogs hat.
@Grindagger It’s a joke 😂
I'll take four, please.
Man RE 6, DMC V, now RE Village CAPCOM love hocking them jackets XD
For that price, I’d expect to get an actual boulder to punch.
I've seen better in my local charity shop for six quid.
Coat is overpriced and not even a decent size, M is too small for a coat
Looks like it weighs a ton, which would be good for the cold weather.
@LiamCroft Thank god for that. Still wouldn't put it past any company to cash in on a very prominent product like Resi. I also couldn't say with my hand on my heart that there would't be people out there willing to shell out, if this were a real thing.
Would it make me taller and able to punch boulders into lava?
PLEASE NOTE: In reading the terms of service it states "We do not accept delivery outside Japan." SO DON'T BOTHER GUYS, IT'S A SHAME!
Back in the day I had a jacket that was the spitting image of the one from Resi 4 (think it's still hanging up under the stairs actually). I can't remember but I'm gonna assume it was under £100
What the frigging [email protected]#k
Heh.... I bet it'll be sold out fast, then some of them will end up on Ebay for auction, and finally be sold at 2x ... 3x the price.
But can you punch Rocks in it?
Interesting how much focus is being placed on Chris this time out. Yes, i know he is in the trailers briefly, but all the talk has been around Ethan Winters as the main character. It will be interesting to see what role Chris plays
$1800?? 🤣🤣🤣🤣 y'all are definitely smoking the green and red herbs. And if it gets you so high, that you envision an $1800 collector's edition for the fans as a good deal, hell, I'd rather have them red and green herbs.
Coamt is expemsive.
@Grindagger well it is the actual coat he wore in the game!
I don't want his coat I just want a steelbook and a few of those Healing herbs.
