Capcom has announced that 200 copies of the Devil May Cry 4 Collector’s Edition have been hand signed by DMC4 producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi (also producer of Resident Evil 4) himself. Not satisfied with the amount of extra goodies packed in with the upcoming Collector’s Edition they pulled 100 copies of the Xbox 360 version and 100 copies of the PS3 version to be signed resealed and randomly redistributed among the games going out for sale “Golden Ticket” style.
The signature appears in silver marker on the back of the case over Dante’s Shoulder with Kobayashi-san’s name written in Roman-ji (Japanese words with “Roman”/English style lettering). The placement of the signature was chosen because it will be hidden by the slipcover that goes over the case. This way no one will know which games have been signed until the seal is broken and the slip cover is removed.
