E3: Resident Evil 5 / Biohazard 5

New trailer from the boys at Capcom of the upcoming addition to the massively popular (and freaky) Resident Evil / Biohazard series.

Resident Evil (or Biohazard as it's known in Asia) is a long-running survival-horror game from Capcom which first debuted on the Playstation in 1996. Whether or not it was the first actual game in the survival-horror genre is debatable, but Capcom were quick to coin the phrase as their own.

The game is tentatively penciled in for a early 2008 release, and details regarding the plot and storyline are sparse. The setting is purported to have a feel similar to that of the movie Black Hawk Down, and will be directed by Jun Takeuchi, director of Onimusha and producer of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. He has stated that Resident Evil 5 will be a sequel to Resident Evil 4, confirming earlier information from the game's former producer,
Hiroyuki Kobayashi.

Guess they ran out of ideas seeing as the whole futuristic-city-invasion has been played out to death.
