2011 is the 15th anniversary of Resident Evil. A few months back, Capcom announced a massive anniversary box of all the main games apart from 5, which includes HD remakes of Resident Evil 4 and Code Veronica, and now they're releasing limited editions of iconic items from the games.
Among them is the limited edition "MISSION LINER" bag, given to BSAA members like Chris Redfield when they join the elite task force. It's in collaboration with designer bag maker BRIEFING, and according to the article, it's a "tough," "hard" and "luxurious" bag, "worthy of being an item to celebrate the 15th anniversary." Prices are to be confirmed in the future, and the release date is early 2012.
Whatever you think about the bag, there are also other items the article mentions -- a couple of baseball caps; iPhone 4 covers; and most impressively -- a replica of Barry Burton's gun. But it doesn't stop there. Capcom has a special Biohazard site, filled with tons and tons of Resident Evil goodness, many of which you'll probably find to be much more appealing and iconic. Highlights for me are the jackets from Resident Evil 2 and Code Veronica worn by the S.T.A.R.S Alpha team and Chris respectively; the gloves Leon wears from Resident Evil 2; and a 1/6th scale figurine of Ada Wong in her China dress from Resident Evil 4.
Being on the Japanese e-Capcom store, and with no option to ship worldwide, there's very little chance we'll ever see these items here, so all we can do is dream, bitch and whine. Even if they did, the prices are typically expensive, sure to put off many.
Nevertheless, if money and postage weren't an object, are there any items you would love to have?
Back when we first reviewed Capcom Arcade Cabinet we told you it would probably be best to just buy all the titles at once rather than dealing with the staggered releases of game packs. That time is now. You'll get all 15 gam...more
Sure, the meme is a bit old but the added sound effects to the Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate video is what really made this spoof for me. Bravo, Capcom-Unity. [Thanks, Dale!]more
Some time ago, we learned off a rather odd project from Capcom -- a gritty Mega Man X FPS idea that never saw the light of day. Yep, Keiji Inafune gave ex-Retro Studios alumni the idea to re-imagine Mega Man similar to Metroi...more
