You can pre-order Silent Hill 2 or get James’ jacket for $120

by Konami Silent Hill 2 Remake gets closer and the fog clears when it comes to getting your Silent Hill 2 pre-orders confirmed. THE Silent Hill 2 Remake is about to arrive with all kinds of bonuses to get your horror fix sooner, but the real terror manifests differently: fashion.

If you’ve ever wanted to don James Sunderland’s drip from Silent Hill 2, then Konami is bringing you the limited edition jacket release based on his appearance. While it could be a great collector’s item for fans of horror games, the jacket’s considerably high $119.99/£94.39 price tag might be enough to keep PS5 gamers away. Factor in shipping costs and the cost of merchandise for the new PS5 game jumps to $130.98/£103.03. However, James’ jacket won’t be available for long.

The “exclusive edition” jacket is only available on the official Konami store and is expected to start shipping in September 2024 – a month before the release date for the Silent Hill 2 remake arrives. According to Konami, the jacket is perfect for gamers who want to exude “rugged style and a mysterious allure.”

Does this sound like something you would be up for? Otherwise, you can set aside your money for a Silent Hill 2 pre-order, and now we know what each edition includes. You may be disappointed to see that there isn’t a Collector’s Edition with cool goodies, but there is at least a Deluxe Edition with the following incentives:

If you’re looking forward to playing the game early, the Deluxe Edition is currently the only version offering 48 hours early access, starting Sunday, October 6, 2024. The Silent Hill 2 remake has a lot riding on its shoulders, and despite a recent look at its scares and thrills, I’m not sure it will hold a candle to the original.

Silent Hill 2’s atmosphere and poignant reflections on grief and loss are some of gaming’s best storytelling, but switching to a Resident Evil 2 remake-style shooter might lose some of that nuance. Silent Hill 2 is considered one of the best games in the horror genre, and that legacy won’t be easy to match.
