Capcom Wants to Release Resident Evil Toys via Happy Meal

Capcom wants to see figures from its Resident Evil game series released as Happy Meal toys in McDonald’s outlets. The company stated its desire by posting a new tweet on its Resident Evil series’ official X account.

The figures shown in the tweet are based on in-game collectible items from the series. From left to right, they are Mr. Everywhere from Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, Mr. Raccoon from the 2019 remake of Resident Evil 2, Charlie Doll from the 2020 remake of Resident Evil 3, and the Clockwork Castellan from the 2023 remake of Resident Evil 4.

Capcom’s tweet is available to view right below:

McDonald’s has previously released Happy Meal toys based on video game franchises like Pokemon, Kirby, and Sonic the Hedgehog. These franchises share a similarity, in which most of their entries are available for children with the ESRB E (Everyone) and CERO A ratings. On the other hand, most Resident Evil games are generally geared towards a more mature audience with the ESRB M (Mature) or CERO D ratings.

The only entries to receive lower ratings were the Game Boy Color title Resident Evil Gaiden and the Resident Evil 2 port for Tiger Electronics‘ Game.com handheld console, which ESRB gave the T (Teen) rating. But still, there are no series entries released to date that have received an ESRB E or CERO A rating to make them suitable for kids.

It remains to be seen whether Capcom’s wish to have these Resident Evil figures available as Happy Meal toys will become a reality, whether in McDonald’s Japan or other countries.
