On September 28th and 29th, to celebrate the release of Resident Evil 6, Capcom turned the Smithfield Meat Market in East London into the Wesker & Sons meat market. A selection of food artists created a number of different dishes shaped to look like human body parts that were available for sale. Not for the vegetarians, the meat market offered various limbs made from sausage, prosciutto, cold cuts, and even tongue sandwiches.
Once at the Wesker & Son butchery, members of the public will be invited to sample and purchase a dizzying array of edible human limbs including hands, feet and a human head, which will be available to buy directly from the shop. As well as these specially created products, gamers will be able to buy ‘Peppered Human & Lemon Sausages’ and ‘J’avo Caught Human Thigh Steaks’ along with some specially made pots of Red Herb and Green Herb. All proceeds from the sale of the meat will be donated to the Limbless Association, which provides information and support to the limb-loss community.
In addition to the pop-up human butchery and morgue, Resident Evil fans will be invited to attend two days of lectures at St. Bartholomew’s Hospital Pathology Museum, which have been designed to explore some of the themes in the game and their links to real life.
