1) Capcom is taking its time over the game instead of rushing it out to cash in on the success of Resident Evil 4. Chief producer Jun Takeuchi confirmed recently that it won’t be released until 2009.
2) There’s some top, seasoned talent onboard. Writer Haruo Murata and director Kenichi Ueda also did the same jobs on RE 4, while producer Jun Takeuchi worked on the first three Onimusha games as well as Lost Planet: Extreme Condition for Xbox 360.
3) After two years of speculation, Chris Redfield definitely is back as the lead character. He looks proper hard and beefed-up like he’s overdosed on steroids, as opposed to the slightly weedy model last seen in Resident Evil Code: Veronica.
