Two More Characters Revealed For RE5, Wesker Is Back!
It's not going to make it out this year, but that doesn't mean there's any less hype or interest. In fact, given the delay, there will probably be more interest when Resident Evil 5 finally releases in early 2009.
Thanks to some new Famitsu scans of the game, we've learned of two new characters that will be included the game: first up is a familiar face to all fans of the long-running franchise, a big, sunglass-wearing punk who goes by the name of Albert Wesker. He first popped up in the original Resident Evil way back when, then kept returning in subsequent entries, including Resident Evil: Code Veronica and Resident Evil 4. Some might say an RE without our buddy Wesker is no RE at all, so this is good news. The other confirmed character is a new member of the RE crew; it's Excella Gionne, the president of the African headquarters of TriCell Pharmaceutical. She's a corporate executive, yes, but she's also a raging middle-aged hottie. You can check out the scan over at Kotaku if you don't believe us. Anyway, she's new but Wesker most certainly is not. Welcome back, ya evil bad-ass.
As more information becomes available for RE5, we'll continue to keep you updated. There's no denying it's going to be one of the biggest titles of 2009, and hopefully, it'll launch before spring. Stay tuned.
