The Las Plagas virus from Resident Evil 4 has inspired a new energy drink from a major beverage company. Parasitic superorganisms, Las Plagas may be traced back to a hidden valley in the Iberian Peninsula, as any gamer can tell you in an instant.
Most fans are pleased about the potential for merchandising the title and the franchise, despite the fact that the branding doesn’t seem very nice because of what Las Plagas is in the Resident Evil universe. In addition, there was already a drink in 2021 that was also inspired by Resident Evil.
A Lady Dimitrescu Energy Package, complete with a tall tub, a new taste, and a shaker decorated with the character’s likeness, was previously available in Resident Evil Village. That partnership was created by leveraging Lady Dimitrescu’s height to make what G-Fuel promoted as the world’s tallest tub (by a margin of 47.2%). The March 2023 release of the Resident Evil 4 Remake is perfect for a new beverage collaboration with the renowned company (as reported by Gamerant).
G-Fuel, the well-known energy drink company, just released its newest item, the Las Plagas Collector’s Box. The listing claims that each box contains a 24 oz Resident Evil 4 Steel Shaker Cup and a Las Plagas Energy Tub good for 40 servings, neither of which can be found anywhere else. Fans can purchase the item for $59.99 USD after joining the waiting list. Fans of Leon Kennedy will be pleased to know that he serves as the inspiration for the design of the Steel Shaker Cup, a limited edition item of Resident Evil 4 memorabilia.
The series has done this sort of thing before, teaming up with other companies to sell new, exclusive products. The release of Resident Evil 4 and its iconic Chainsaw controller are two events that gamers will always remember. A gamer recently unearthed one of these in mint condition, therefore its price has likely gone up. The G-Fuel branded Resident Evil 4 steel shaker cup could be lucrative in the long run due to its rarity.
In response to the news, a player has developed a mod that substitutes G-Fuel supplements for the herbs in Resident Evil 4. You can also use G-Fuel tubs in place of Leon’s head and body. Although this update is unlikely to be remembered as one of the best Resident Evil 4 mods in the future, its timely delivery should pique player interest in G-Fuel and Capcom’s partnership. It’s possible the mod will be used to drum up interest in the product before it’s released.
The PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S all have access to Resident Evil 4 (2023).
