Resident Evil 2’s Japanese Collector’s Edition Features the Infamous Typewriter

Setting aside the fact that Qwerkywriter's keyboard doesn't resemble the in-game typewriter, this isn't a bad collector's edition when combined with everything from the previous set. It'll be only for PS4 since the local Xbox One release is just digital.

The big picture: Capcom's Resident Evil 2-inspired Lexington typewriter-style Bluetooth-enabled wireless keyboard is absurd on all levels but for the sake of diehard collectors, I'm glad stuff like this is being made.

Capcom has just announced the Resident Evil 2: Z Version Premium Edition, the highest tier available and priced at $972. The keyboard is also available without the game for 81,000 yen taxes included. 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. All of these editions are for the PlayStation 4 version.

Hippo bite kills tourist in Kenya
His 62-year-old friend, Wu Peng Te survived the tragic encounter and is recuperating at Lake Naivasha Lake Naivasha Sopa Resort. Taiwan's foreign ministry has since confirmed that the two tourists involved in the attack were from the self-governed island.

It also includes a Leon S. Kennedy statue, a poster, an art book, a soundtrack, a copy of the game, and some DLC bonuses.

This means buyers are basically paying over $650 extra for the keyboard. While the game comes in several different collector's edition configurations on the Japanese site, the centerpiece is a working bluetooth and USB keyboard modeled after the series' iconic typewriter.

You'd have to be a pretty hardcore, and rich, Resident Evil fan to pony up for that, but we can't pretend the keyboard isn't highly desirable. While it's a safe bet this package won't be coming stateside, the more reasonable collector's edition and its contents will be available in the USA for $200.
