Margin Makers: Guide to Resident Evil merchandise

Margin Makers: Guide to Resident Evil merchandise

Capcom’s Resident Evil VII: Biohazard is unquestionably the biggest game to launch this January.

The latest entry in the beloved survival-horror series will launch on January 24th and comes with a wealth of tie-in items. Merchoid has unveiled a brand new collection created by accessories brand Bioworld Europe, which comprises one hoodie, one sweater and six T-shirts. 

Merchoid’s community manager Jessica Adams commented: “The new Resident Evil game looks to be the most horrifying yet. We’re sure fans will want to welcome it in by picking up some incredible Resident Evil merchandise. Don’t worry though, the prices aren’t scary.”

However, all merchandise manufacturers actually want a slice of Resi’s cake, so there are a lot of other products available for Resident Evil fans to purchase, as well as two special editions, both of which are GAME exclusives in the UK.

For more on Resident Evil VII, you can check out our recap and predictions for the game and read more from Capcom’s associate brand manager Stefano Barolo about the title’s marketing campaign in this week's MCV.


Resident Evil: Gas Mask Sweater

This jumper is part of Merchoid’s new official Resident Evil VII collection, which is due to ship on January 20th, just in time to have a new outfit to celebrate the release of the game on January 24th. It’s already available to pre-order.

‘Blood, Sweat and Fears’ 4D VR candle

This is probably the most unusual tie-in item ever. This ‘4D VR candle’ allows gamers to actually experience the smell of Resident Evil VII’s Baker mansion while playing in VR. According to the merchant’s website, the candle has “notes of old timber, leather (and maybe some blood)” and will last long enough for a complete playthrough of the game.

Resident Evil: Umbrella Co. Hoodie

The evil Umbrella Corporation is inseparable from the franchise, which is why Bioworld included this design in Merchoid’s new range. And by the way, if you look very carefully while playing Resident Evil VII’s demo, you can apparently see Umbrella’s logo at one point.
