What better way to mark the Tokyo Game Show than with one of Japan’s best loved horror franchises? Capcom agree, apparently, as they’ve delivered the goods with a brand new trailer, new demo announcement, and new pre-order details for the highly anticipated 7th numbered installment in the Resident Evil (Biohazard) series.
The ‘Opening Hour’ teaser demo has been downloaded more than 3 million times worldwide, and Capcom want to make that 3 million more, it seems. They have announced that an extended version of the demo, allowing players to explore more of the mansion, named the ‘twilight’ version will be released on PSN on September 15th. (But will hopefully be free of clear skinned, sparkly vampires).
The trailer itself, if you haven’t already grossed yourself out by watching, shows off some of the first person gameplay and combat – albeit briefly. We are also treated to a delightful family dinner scene, which highlights the danger of not appreciating a mother’s cooking.
Capcom have also announced an additional story episode to be included with the ‘Deluxe Edition‘ pre-order, the North American price is also increasing along with it (from $79.99 to $89.99) but existing pre-orders will be upgraded for free. This means that season pass holders will now get access to three additional story content DLCs.
