Capcom had a little bit of a surprise in content to show off this week for Resident Evil 2 as we see Claire Redfield in some different gear. If you happen to buy the Collector’s Edition or the Deluxe Edition of the game, you’ll get this military costume of her as one of the many yet-to-be-named bonuses that will come with those editions. The costume itself doesn’t make a lick of sense as Claire has no military training in the character’s background, and the costume itself is just that, it’s a costume with no benefit to the character beyond looks. So… we’re really confused as to why this is here. They could have given her an outfit from any other game she’s been in after this and we could have rolled with it as an homage, but this is just weird.
