PSX Extreme writes: "Resident Evil has long been a staple of Capcom's portfolio, demonstrating continuous quality and attention to detail from nearly every release the series has seen, excluding the spin-offs, of course. The series is now ready to enter its third generation of games with a release on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in March 2009. Following the absolutely epic success of Resident Evil 4, Resident Evil 5 has some rather large shoes to fill, but based on our time with the game this past Summer and the additional info we know, it shouldn't have any trouble filling those shoes.
No longer in Raccoon City or Europe, we are taken to Africa. As you know, RE5 stars Chris Redfield, our her from the first Resident Evil and Code Veronica. Chris has allied with a new counter-terrorism group and tracks down a new biohazard threat in Africa. This new threat transforms the citizens and animals of the villages into rabid and mindless beings, and you'll have to figure out where this threat is coming from."
