Super Groupies will release a collection of items inspired by characters from the Resident Evil series. This includes a series of watches, wallets, and bags. These items are designed after specific Resident Evil characters and their appearances in certain Resident Evil games. This includes items inspired by Albert Wesker, Chris Redfield, Jill Valentine, and Leon S. Kennedy. These items are also available for international shipping, with pre-orders now available for those located in Japan. [Thanks, Famitsu!]
The first series of Super Groupies and Resident Evil collaboration items are a line of inspired watches. Each watch carries some kind of visual design to reference the character it is inspired by. This includes color schemes, watch faces, and straps. The inspired watches will cost ¥23,980 or approximately $216.
The next items on the list are a line of wallets. Each wallet comes embossed with the name of the character on the inside, along with the Resident Evil (also known as Biohazard in Japan) 25th anniversary logo on the lining of the inside of the wallet. Each wallet will cost ¥10,780 or roughly $97.
And lastly, Super Groupies will release a line of Resident Evil inspired bags. These items aren’t nearly as discreet as the wallets, but still retain a level of inspiration from the character designs they are intended to reflect. As you can see below, these designs are based off of specific appearances of the selected Resident Evil characters.
The Jill Valentine bag is based off of her Resident Evil 3 remake appearance, whereas the Leon S. Kennedy bag is based off of his design in Resident Evil 4. The Chris Redfield bag is based off of his appearance in Resident Evil 6, while Wesker’s line of inspired items draws inspiration from his design in Resident Evil 5. The bags will cost ¥16,280 or approximately $147.
Super Groupies has collaborated with Capcom on other inspired merchandise in the past. This included a Devil May Cry 5 collaboration, which saw the release of boots inspired by Dante, Nero, and V.
