Mr. Keith Posted November 1, 2004 Report Share Posted November 1, 2004 It looks like the folks at Capcom Entertainment were only kidding when they sternly insisted over and over again that the GameCube action-thriller Resident Evil 4 would forever remain exclusive to Nintendo's console. The company today announced that, due to demand from users and shareholder influences, a PlayStation 2 build of Resident Evil 4 is now also in development. The GameCube version will release on January 11 of next year in the US and just two weeks later in Japan. Meanwhile, the PlayStation 2 build is set to debut at the "end of 2005," according to the publisher. The surprise announcement was posted to Capcom's official Japanese website over the weekend. Readers can check out the official release right here. IGN contacted Capcom USA for further comments and clarification, but reps for the subsidiary could not be reached over the weekend. Resident Evil 4 stars franchise hero Leon S. Kennedy on an all-new quest to save the President's kidnapped daughter from a European threat. When Kennedy travels to an isolated village, he finds himself attacked by hordes of zombie-like villagers and smack-dab in the middle of an evil plot involving ungodly creatures, dark monks and a dangerous virus. The game's cutting-edge graphics and ambient atmosphere have won it acclaim from critics ever since it was unveiled more than a year ago. We'll have more on all versions of the game when the information becomes available. Stay tuned. credit to IGNcube.com Good for PS2 owners, TERRIBLE for GC owners who thought we actually had something over them. :grumble: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
