Capcom and airsoft gun manufacturer Tokyo Marui are collaborating to release release a new airsoft gun designed after Leon S. Kennedy’s starting handgun in the Resident Evil 4 remake. The replica model is called “SG-09 R,” and the toy is set to release in late March 2023 in Japan. It will cost 32,800 JPY (roughly $244 USD). [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]
The “SG-09 R” airsoft replica comes with a special magazine, titled “Survive Magazine #18,” and it contains a report on the features of the gun. Additionally, the airsoft gun also includes two extra magazines. The packaging of the toy is designed to replicate the same container that Leon’s gun uses in the game.
The reproduction includes a serial number on the left side of the pistol slide, and the Kendo logo is engraved on its right side, a reference to Resident Evil character and guns manufacturer Robert Kendo. You can check out the Resident Evil 4 airsoft gun in more detail in the gallery below.
A different piece of merchandising that was considered, but ultimately didn’t make the cut is a reproduction of the iconic RE4 chainsaw controller, that originally released for the GameCube and PS2.
The “SG-09 R” airsoft replica is releasing in late March 2023. The remake of Resident Evil 4 will come to the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam on March 24, 2023.
