Capcom sure is an expert at marketing. Before Resident Evil 6 was even officially announced, they created the “No Hope Left” promotional website, there’s been six or more trailers, a pre-order bonus with Leon’s leather jacket, a theme park, and a restaurant. Despite all their previous antics, this new promotion is surprisingly their most bizarre yet.
In East London, Capcom is hosting an RE-themed art installation at the Smithfield Meat Market, according to Neatorama.
The exhibit is named “Wesker & Son Resident Evil Human Butchery”, and features real meat moulded and shaped into human body parts. They’re available to purchase, too! Up for sale (and for dinner, if you can stomach it) are peppered human & lemon sausages, J’avo (the new C-Virus enemies) thigh steaks and red and green herbs.
For you disapproving folks out there, don’t be completely disgusted as all proceeds of the sale will be donated to the Limbless Association, a charity for those who have lost limbs.
The event is only running through this Saturday 29th September, so hurry if you don’t want to miss it.
If you’re not planning on eating just yet, ensure you catch all the grotesque images of the event right here!
There will also be lectures at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Pathology Museum this weekend, which will discuss real-life cannibalism and viruses, and explore the similarities of Resident Evil games and real life.
Today we also brought you the latest Resident Evil 6 trailer.
