As if the announcement in this week’s Famitsu of Resident Evil 5 on Xbox 360 and PS3 (no Nintendo love this time?) wasn’t enough, Capcom are hinting that an appearance at the Tokyo Game Show is a distinct possibility, which is seriously fantastic. I loved RE4 so a sequel that follows the same formula but with the extra muscle of the 360 and PS3 will be great, and when you look at how beautiful they made it look on the GameCube imagine what they’ll be able to do.
I can see a move on the scale of the one that took you from the mansion/labs of Resident Evil into the city environment of RE2, but even more pronounced. Hopefully you’ll be given more free reign of the city this time instead of being shepherded into a distinctly mansion-like police station within ten minutes.
