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

Forget getting your Silent Hill 2 remake pre-order locked in, you can dress like James Sunderland but it’ll cost more than the game itself.

Konami’s Silent Hill 2 remake is drawing closer, and the mist is clearing when it comes to getting your Silent Hill 2 pre-orders confirmed. The Silent Hill 2 remake is set to arrive with all manner of bonuses for getting your horror fix early, but the real terror is manifesting itself differently: fashion.

If you’ve ever fancied donning the drip of Silent Hill 2’s James Sunderland, then Konami have you covered with the release of the limited-edition jacket based upon his appearance. While it might be a great collector’s piece for horror game fans, the jacket’s considerably steep $119.99/£94.39 price tag might be enough to ward PS5 players away from it. Factor in postage, and the cost of the new PS5 game’s merchandise jumps to $130.98/£103.03. Nevertheless, James’ jacket won’t be available for too long.

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

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

If you’re eager to play the game early, then the Deluxe Edition currently stands as the only version offering 48 hours early access, beginning on Sunday, October 6, 2024. The Silent Hill 2 remake has a lot riding on its shoulders, and despite a recent look at its frights and thrills, I’m not quite sure if it will hold a candle to the original.

Silent Hill 2’s atmosphere and poignant ruminations on grief and loss are amid the best storytelling in gaming, but shifting to a Resident Evil 2 remake style shooter may lose some of that nuance. Silent Hill 2 is regarded as one of the best games in the horror genre, and that legacy won’t be easy to match.
