A plethora of new footage on Capcom’s upcoming Resident Evil 5 has been released in light of the game’s extensive showing at the E3 Media and Business Summit this week.
Available for viewing below, the new videos include an alternate take on the recent E3 trailer (focusing on several new characters) in addition to numerous gameplay videos set in the now infamous village location, which depict the new co-operative mode in full swing.
Resident Evil 5 takes place approximately ten years after the events of the original game, and pits players in the shoes of former S.T.A.R.S operative, Chris Redfield, as he investigates the latest bio-terrorism threat in a remote African village.
The game is scheduled for release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on March 13, 2009.

Wow it looks amazing. It's actually looking better than I was expecting. Good job Capcom!

It looks great, but it does look a lot like Las Plagas again. As this is supposed to be going back to the source of the virus, I was expecting something more along the lines of the good ol' zombies and creatures from the earlier games. Las Plagas were just an infestation of parasites, and not a virus as such. I guess maybe there could be a plot twist... like maybe the virus mutated some creature that became Las Plagas, and we might see zombies later in game. Who knows?!
Don't get me wrong, though... RE4 was a fantastic game, and if this does turn out to be 'just' RE4 in hi-def, that's fine with me. I'll be buying this no matter what.

I prefer zombie's, but I'll still be getting this game - Mainly for the co-op, I can't imagine playing a horror game by myself (I got scared of the weird zombie-like creatures in Uncharted... Whimpy, I know.)

Im dissapointed with this game. It looks exactly the same as RE4. They should have added new things. Its too much of the same. Hopefully it is different, i mean, im still going to get it. But im very dissapointed. I really wanted Zombies again. Zombies are awesome. RE4 was fun but i want something a little different. We'll see closer to release date if it will be any better. I heard that there was a completely different control scheme. We'll see

Yup. I want it. I really hope it plays as well as RE4. It looks great and I can't wait to try it first hand.

If this turns out to only be even an RE4 in Medium Def- I'm buying it! That game set the standard for fun playing a game for me.

Nice, I can't wait. kinda sad though i was in denial when they said march 13, on E3 thought maybe it was gonna be delayed for the $h!tbox 360 and not PS3.
