Capcom is selling a stupidly expensive coat (again) to promote Resident Evil Village


Capcom is once again asking for your financial support as the Japanese publisher is selling a stupidly expensive replica of Chris Redfield’s coat from Resident Evil Village on its website.

The charcoal-colored coat is, by all accounts, a fairly standard wool coat. It comes in medium, large, extra large and a bizarre ‘Original Model’ size that’s supposed to fit Chris Redfield’s in-game proportions. 

The kicker, though, is that Chris’ coat costs an eye-watering 159,731 yen, which is just over $1,500 (around £1,100 / AU$2,000), and it doesn’t even button up if you want to protect yourself from the elements. It’s also so nondescript that you’ll inevitably have to tell people who’s coat it actually is, only to be laughed at once you reveal the price.
