A new premium edition has been revealed for Resident Evil 6 in Japan, which includes a leather jacket so that you can dress up like Leon Kennedy.

Special editions of games let you pay extra for everything from downloadable costumes to tiny Master Chief helmets, but Capcom is taking things a step further by letting you dress up like Resident Evil 6 star Leon Kennedy — all for the low price of ¥105,000 ($1,297). The newly unveiled "premium" edition is available for both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game, and comes with a quartet of character-themed tablet covers and, more importantly, Leon's leather jacket. And considering that a copy of the game with one tablet case will run you around $98, it's one expensive jacket. Unless you're in Japan, it may not matter anyway: it's not being advertised outside Capcom's local market at the moment. Resident Evil 6 will be coming out on October 2nd, and be sure to check out Polygon's preview from Captivate 2012 for a closer look at the game.
