Given all the buzz surrounding Resident Evil Village, Capcom is riding high at the moment. In fact, if not for the positive reception, releasing a US$1,500 jacket veers close to madness.
But for cosplay fans who want nothing but the best, this one screen replica jacket worn by Chris Redfield is spot on.
The Japan-exclusive coat is an impressive facsimile. True to its screen counterpart, the coat comes with no buttons. The coat comes in 4 sizes. The usual Medium, Large and Extra Large. But also a “Original Model” that used 3D scanning of the in-game character to duplicate a carbon copy of the protagonist’s coat in the trailer itself.
You could also get a complete set of the Resident Evil Village collectible set by adding a miniature equipment set and an art book named “Village of Shadows”.
The coat is released on the Capcom website on 8 May 2021. You can get one for JP¥159,731 (or US$1,530). The equipment set and art book bundle cost JP¥12,100 (or US$116).
