Many of our fans in Europe, especially the UK, have been slavering for any kind of information on whether or not they’ll be getting a collector’s edition of Resident Evil 3. America’s was already announced (and sold out within hours), but not a single word had been said about our friends across the pond.
Finally, European Resi fans have good news and bad news.
The good news is that Europe is getting their own collector’s edition for Resident Evil 3, which includes an artbook titled Project N & Project R, a two-sided map of Raccoon City itself, a two-disc soundtrack, which contains the original score for the game, and, most importantly, the Jill Valentine 11-inch figurine.
The bad news is, it’s going to run you £215, or around $282. This is STAGGERINGLY higher than the price that American fans will pay, which is around $180. On top of that, that price doesn’t even include shipping and handling.
Regardless, if you plan to preorder this edition, I’d recommend hopping on that ASAP. Things like this don’t tend to last very long, and rumor is already spreading that stores are selling out!
