doesn't look very good.

this has had a visual downgrade like devil may cry 4.
Not really, textures seem to have taken a hit (though that could just be the scan quality washing out the detail), but otherwise it looks the same as the E3 trailer

This wouldn't happen to be the same girl from Resident Evil:Gaiden now would it?
I think the general gaming population Capcom would rather just forget that game existed.

Honestly everything about the latest scans just scream quality. The locations, the atmosphere, the visuals, the characters, EVERYTHING.

If anyone can clarify this point better from the Japanese info I'd appreciate it myself.


Famitsu says

The mysterious shadow. This particular "swaying shadow" behind an iron fence might be holding the key/answer to the story.
Observing the picture below, you can see a naked man rusting away/out inside a prison. He is slouching somehow, his left hand juts out, his right hand is dangling loosely. It seems he is imprisoned by somebody. This man seems to be a very important character for Biohazard 5, perhaps because he's holding the key/anwser to the disaster that occured in this town. This man has a close resemblance to Nosferatu (from BioCV) and Lisa Trevor (from Biohazard remake). Which means that if Chris has to face him, he should be a tough opponent...

The game indeed looks gorgeous. Hopefully, they'll come with new animations for Chris and the ennemies when the trailer is released (cause in the last vid, all the animations were exactly like in RE4...)

Oh man. I can't wait for this game but the black sidekick is the biggest [[[[[NOT RACIST, SOME OF MY BEST FRIENDS ARE BLACK]]]]] ever seen in a video game.

In the cold.
Hmm....I don't know about the skin color.

If it is white (albeit quite tan) could be Jill....and I would definitely like a return to two character options after 4. But somehow, I don't think we're that lucky. The earring she's seen to be wearing throws off the Jill vibe, too, as well as the small ponytail....but the outfit does seem to be an amalgamation of her Nemesis and RE1 outfits....hmm.

Edit: Ah, saw the "translations". Not Jill, then, at least...supposedly.

And yeah, I'm thinking it is Sherry that Chris is holding.

Maybe, but it looks more like a tan and one thing Africa has most is sun and heat. Although I was expecting a Carl Weathers like character for Chris's PC sidekick.

She looks like someone from south america. Definately not black though. Also she seems pretty small, but I like petite girls :D

- A new trailer will be shown in the very near future.
- For now, Famitsu will show images and some info from one part of that trailer. (intro paragraph written by Takeuchi)
- There's a new female character, shown holding a shotgun and wearing a tank top and boots similar to the ones Jill wore in RE3.
- In addition to areas that make use of sunlight as a gameplay dynamic, there will be darker, shadow-filled areas as well, such as a cavern where Chris utilizes a flashlight. There will be an intense contrast between light and dark.
- Chris is shown using his knife, a sniper rifle above a bridge that's above a river, and of course the handgun.
- A few pieces of artwork are shown, such Chris fighting villagers near a crashed helicopter, that same helicopter flying amidst a smoke-filled sky, and Chris witnessing the helicopter being shot down. There's also some kind of garden in the cavern with a giant hole above it, allowing the sunlight in.
- Chris is shown holding a blond girl noticeably shorter than him in a building.
- A picture of a chainsaw and the right leg of its weilder is shown.
- Chris will be up against very powerful enemies once again, and this shot of some creature behind iron bars is reminiscent of Chris's previous enemies, such as CODE: Veronica's Nosferatu (although it was Claire who faced him) and the REmake's Lisa Trevor. Those two creatures were imprisoned at some point as well.

I can't be the only one who laughed at this :lol
