Resident Evil 5 Alternative Edition As DLC

Capcom has revealed the upcoming Resident 5 Alternative edition set for release in Japan early next year, will be offered to US and European users as DLC.Following a vote on the Capcom Unity blog, it seems the Resi fans decided that they’d prefer to get their hands on the Alternative edition as DLC rather than a boxed retail copy.“We let the poll run for a couple weeks and then snagged a bunch of your comments from the original blog posting as well as from threads in the forums and presented it all to the RE5 team in Osaka,” reads the blog.“As of this morning, we had close to 1500 people vote for DLC and close to 900 vote for a new physical product. In addition, we had over 300 comments on the blog posting, which is amazing to all of us here at Capcom.”The Alternative edition will add PS3 motion controls to the mix as well as a brand new scenario, Lost in Nightmares, in which Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine infiltrate the Spencer Estate back in 2006. The blog also hints at more unannounced content. “You will not be asked to purchase a new copy of the game just to get at the new stuff, just make sure to hold on to your RE5 disc and you’ll be ready to roll in Spring 2010 when we make available new Resident Evil adventures (and some other things we haven’t told you about yet) for you,” it states.“Keep that in mind when thinking about selling RE5 back or handing it off to a friend ;)”Check out our reviews of Resident Evil 5 and the Versus Mode.
