Believe it or not, the “Resident Evil 2” remake is retailing for around $900 in Japan. Despite its hefty price, fans will find that purchasing a copy is worth it given all the items it comes with.

According to IGN, the Japanese Premium Edition of the “Resident Evil 2” remake has a very expensive price tag. But this is justified by the official Lexington typewriter USB keyboard that comes with the game.

The special keyboard is modeled after the series’ iconic typewriter. Its dated yet sophisticated look is backed by its Bluetooth functionality. Fans can use the keyboard wirelessly, and they may connect it to their compatible Windows and MacOS devices. It also works with iOS and Android devices. Unfortunately, the peripheral does not work with PS4 and Xbox One consoles.

For those who only want to buy the Lexington keyboard, it is retailing for 75,000 yen or US$675. There’s also a version with a typewriter ribbon prop, but that one costs 82,800 yen or $750, as per GameSpot.

The expensive price of the keyboard is also understandable because the device has special features included. It is designed to be as traditional as possible, so the makers have assigned the return bar to also function as another enter key. The paper feeder has also been built to serve as a volume knob and a scrolling tool.

Also included in the Premium Edition are the following: a statue of Leon Kennedy, four ribbons and the boxed Collector’s Edition of the game. The box comes with a Raccoon Police Station poster, an art book, a soundtrack CD, a copy of the game and a DLC voucher. If fans opt for just the Collector’s Edition, they will get all of the aforesaid items found in the Premium Edition save for the Lexington typewriter keyboard.

Sadly, the Premium Edition of the “Resident Evil 2” remake is only limited to the Japanese market. It is now available for purchase on Capcom’s Japanese website. U.S.-based collectors will have to find for their copies from import shops, or purchase them in Japan. The Collector’s Edition, on the other hand, is coming to the U.S. with a $200 price tag.

The “Resident Evil 2” remake is scheduled for release on Jan. 25, 2019 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC.
