Resident Evil 5: New Famitsu Scans

The latest issue of Famitsu Magazine featured a four-page preview on Resident Evil 5. The new preview contained a bunch of new screenshots along with some new information. The new screenshots really show that the game is going along great. View the new breakdown of information at the jump.

– 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 Resident Evil 3.

– 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 wielder 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.
