Game bundles are not a new concept, with most “A” titles offering some sort of premium edition with extra goodies. These days, the most exclusive editions can get very, very expensive. Capcom’s “Ultra Limited Edition” Devil May Cry 5 Dante Bundle ups the ante for how much they can ask for a video game bundle. It costs 900,000 yen plus tax, or roughly $8,600(USD). Say what?
So what does all that money get you? The bundle comes with a copy of the game, interchangeable box art, and a handmade leather Dante jacket based on the one worn by the video game’s motion actor. If this is too expensive for you, they do offer two other Ultra Limited Edition bundles, Nero and V, that are a bit less pricey, in the $5,000 to $6,000 range. Who in the hell buys a game bundle for that much? Not me. There’s no way the jacket alone is worth that kind of money.
These Ultra Limited Edition bundles will be available in only Japan. You can pre-order the Devil May Cry 5 bundles between October 22 and November 19. I would be very interested to know how many of these get sold at full price.
