- Posted May 14th, 2008 at 07:25 EDT by Michael Harradence
The latest issue of Japan’s Famitsu magazine contains some new information, screenshots and artwork on Capcom’s forthcoming horror epic, Resident Evil 5.
According to the publication, the impact of sunlight in the game continues to play a crucial role, commenting that players will experience multiple instances where they must explore both light and dark locations.
Elsewhere, the magazine also remarks that only three weapons have been confirmed to make an appearance thus far; a combat knife, handgun and sniper rifle. Additionally, it states that the title will feature similar boss encounters to previous instalments, and gives mention to Nosferatu from Resident Evil Code: Veronica as an example.
Scans can be viewed below, featuring Chris Redfield in a number of new locations throughout the village, as well as some intriguing artwork and a new female character (who we can confirm is definitely not Claire Redfield, as previously speculated by Game Informer)

More information on Resident Evil 5 will be revealed at Capcom’s upcoming CAPTIVATE 08 event later this month.
