RE: Operation Raccoon City brutalizes the PC on May 18; new trailer released

According to Capcom, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be absolutely brutal. And if this new trailer is anything to go by, they’re right. Allow me to channel my inner Joe Bob Briggs for a second here as I catalog all the carnage…

We’ve got exploding zombies, flaming zombies, stabbed zombies, headshots, kneeshots, throat slashes, ninja-fu, bra-fu, and kicking-a-mutant-in-the-balls-fu. If Joe Bob Briggs were still on the air, I’m sure he’d say “Check it out!”

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 20 with a PC version to follow on May 18.

Capcom dates RE: Operation Raccoon City, Asura’s Wrath

It looks like our return to Raccoon City will be delayed as Capcom has announced 2012 release dates for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City and Asura’s Wrath.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be released for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on March 20, 2012 with a PC release scheduled for later in the year. Capcom has also announced that their retelling of Resident Evil 2/3 from Umbrella’s viewpoint will be available in a Special Edition that includes a copy of the game, in a Steelbook case with exclusive art, stylized foil sleeve, Umbrella Security Service embroidered patch, Spec Ops Field Unit embroidered patch, and eight in-game bonus weapons.

Operation Raccoon City will be beaten to stores by action game Asura’s Wrath. Developed by CyberConnect2, the game will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 21, 2012.

These two titles join Capcom’s previously announced 2012 lineup including the Vita version of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 (February 22), Dragon’s Dogma (early 2012) and Resident Evil Revelations (February 7).

Meet the Umbrella Security team in new RE Operation Raccoon City trailer

Another trailer for Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City has clawed its way out of Capcom and this one highlights the Umbrella Security Squad that’ll be hunting down Leon Kennedy and battling with the U.S. Spec Ops team in the zombie ravaged Raccoon City, circa 1998. Although why a team of badasses with cloaking devices care about a rookie cop in a town overrun with zombies is beyond me.

We also get our first closeup of the trenchcoated Bio-Organic Weapon from the game’s first trailer. Sadly, it’s not Nemesis.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will be available for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this Winter.

Capcom celebrates 15 years of Resident Evil with five games

Capcom is resurrecting a ton of games for the 15th anniversary of the Resident Evil series. Not only that, but the publisher is injecting some new blood into the series with a pair of original games. And they want to get that blood pumping with the new trailer above that showcases all of these titles.

First up there’s Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D, a multiplayer 3DS game based on the “Mercenaries” mode found in previous games in the series. And speaking of previous games in the series, the trailer also includes another look at the PSN/XBLA HD versions of Resident Evil: Code Veronica X and Resident Evil 4.

Capcom plans to bring out the new stuff later in the year including the return of Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine in Resident Evil: Revelations (also for the 3DS). And capping the celebration is a return to the RE2/RE3 era in the brand new Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City (which is coming to the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360).

That is a lot of Resident Evil and this is a pretty neat trailer.
