In the past couple of years, we’ve seen a lot of crazy collector’s editions for AAA titles. From that Dying Light bundle that included a real zombie-proof shelter to the million dollar Saints Row IV special edition that included space travel and a Lamborghini, you can really see how much major marketing teams are stepping up their game. Devil May Cry 5 is no exception, and their special edition is nothing to scoff at.
Exclusive to Japan, the bundle comes in three variants, each with a copy of the game and a floor length jacket from the game character of your choice, at varying unreasonable prices. The lowest priced “Ultra Limited Edition” includes V’s jacket at $5,300 US. The mid-tier jacket belongs to Nero and will set you back roughly $6,500. Finally, the most expensive jacket is Dante’s, which will cost a whopping $8,000 dollars.
Whether or not you think spending thousands of dollars on a cosplay accessory to be a wise investment, the option is there, and it surely will be interesting to see if anybody actually buys it. For this price point, they had better be the greatest crafted jackets in recorded history.
What do you think about this special edition? Do you think the quality of this clothing is good enough to charge thousands, or is this a large misstep on Capcom’s part? Hit the comments to let us know what you think!
