In an announcement today that has me salivating more than that first zombie in the Spencer Mansion, Capcom and the amazingly inventive merch company Numskull Designs revealed the official Resident Evil 2™ merchandise range, that they are releasing to coincide with the upcoming launch of Resident Evil 2 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC next year.
In their words:
Resident Evil 2 fans can feel like they’re part of the action with the official scented candle and R.P.D. pin badge, can look the part with snapbacks and t-shirts, and can join in on the action with a flashlight keychain inspired by the flashlight used by Leon and Claire throughout the game.
The full range of merchandise includes:
- – R.P.D. Steel Mug
- – Zombie Scented Candle
- – Resident Evil 2 R.P.D. Collector’s Pin
- – Resident Evil 2 Pin Set
- – Flashlight Keychain
- – ‘Made in Heaven’ Keychain
- – ‘Made in Heaven’ T-shirt
- – R.P.D. T-shirt
- – R.P.D. Snapback
It’s hard to decide what my favourite piece of this range is, but I love idea of the Zombie Scented Candle, which is described as having ‘the curious, distinctive scent of the undead’. Also, I will very likely be picking up the “Made In Heaven” t-shirt and that gorgeous pair of pin badges (both pictured above and below).
If you like the look or sound (or smell) of anything here and want to see the full range, you see and pre-order this range right now here. Select products will also be available at retailers around the world including Amazon, GAME, GameStop, Target, Best Buy, EB Games and many more from January 25th.
Do you think you’ll pick any of this range up (I know I will be)? Let me know on Twitter, or in the comments.
