If you're an avid collector and you want to know how much the Resident Evil 4 remake Collector's Edition is going to set you back, I've got good and bad news for you. The good news is there will indeed be a Collector's Edition, and it'll come with some fun goodies. The bad news is that it's eye-wateringly expensive, as you might imagine.

The Resident Evil 4 remake was announced back in June, alongside a release date of March 24th next year. Since then, more details about the game have been trickling out, but yesterday, Capcom held a Resident Evil Showcase in which the studio showed off more gameplay details for the reimagined 2005 horror classic, as well as giving us a look at the RE4 remake Collector's Edition bundle.

Here's what you get. The game itself is included, and it'll come with a nice steelbook package as well. Extra DLC has been bundled in with the game, as well as a Leon figurine, an artbook, and a map of Resident Evil 4's play area. All of this will come in a rather snazzy-looking box, but get ready to hand over many of your hard-earned pesetas to the merchant if you want it, because the Collector's Edition will set you back $250. Ouch.

The Resident Evil 4 remake Collector's Edition looks pretty snazzy, but it had better, considering how much it costs.

If you're not quite ready to splash out on the Collector's Edition, there's also a Deluxe Edition up for grabs. This includes several costumes, an exclusive treasure map, and special weapons, as well as some fun-looking screen filters and the ability to hear the original game's soundtrack instead of the new one. All of this stuff comes with the Collector's Edition as well, of course. Pre-ordering the game will net you special inventory case skins and charms, too, so be sure to take a look at the pre-order site if you want to get in on that action.

The Resident Evil Showcase also gave us a look at some of the ways in which Capcom has updated Resident Evil 4's gameplay for the remake. It's pretty faithful to the original, but the visuals have been vastly improved, and Leon's got access to more moves in combat as well.

The trailer specifically focused on an early encounter with several Ganados (the basic villager enemies in the game), who now use more attacks and clever tactics when swarming Leon. To beat them back, Leon can now use several new moves, including an emergency escape and a new knife parry.

In an interview with IGNResident Evil 4 remake producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi said the knife is intended to stop players from being "forced to play in a certain way", and that gameplay supervisor Kazunori Kadoi is "obsessed" with using the knife to its fullest potential. Sounds like it'll be a pretty key part of Leon's arsenal.

It sounds like QTEs will be a reduced presence in Resident Evil 4.

Hirabayashi also revealed that the story and characters will be expanded on in the upcoming remake, and that sequels like Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 7 will contribute to a "restructured" narrative. If you're more worried about the gameplay, Hirabayashi says there are "barely any" QTEs in the Resident Evil 4 remake; although there are "times when you need to press a button based on a situation", there will be no mid-cutscene button prompts, so you can watch the cutscenes without fear of suddenly missing a prompt and dying.

You can watch the Resident Evil showcase in full right here. It also contains information about Resident Evil Village's multiplayer companion Resident Evil: Re:Verse, which is landing on October 28th and getting an Early Access event on October 24th, as well as the upcoming Resident Evil Village DLC that expands and concludes the game's story. To put it simply, if you're a Resident Evil fan, you're going to want to check out the showcase if you missed it.

The Resident Evil 4 remake is due to arrive on March 24th next year on PC, PlayStation consoles, and Xbox Series X|S.
