Yesterday, the western arm of Capcom unveiled the costumes and bonuses that will be included in the Deluxe Edition of Resident Evil 2.

Today the Japanese arm of the publisher released a series of 1080p screenshots showing the two Noir costumes for both Leon Kennedy and Claire Redfield.

Interestingly, the announcement also mentions that when you use one of these costumes, a black and white filter can be activated, turning the game into a rather believable reproduction of a noir film. The screenshots themselves show the effect.

Another image provides more details compared to the one showcased yesterday, showing all the bonus costumes from head to toe, instead of just from the waist up.

Incidentally, this DLC package will also be purchasable separately at launch if you don’t get the Deluxe Edition.
