Resident Evil Code: Veronica X
Sega fanboys have one less Dreamcast-exclusive game to taunt PS2 owners about come this May. That's right, Capcom's latest (if you don't count RE Survivor, and we don't) and arguably greatest sequel in the Resident Evil "survival-horror" adventure series is on its way to Sony's big black box this summer.
So why the added "X" in the title? 'Cause it's not a straight port-more like a Director's Cut. Added goodies include nearly 10 minutes of new footage (mostly cutscenes involving the villain Wesker; Wesker meeting Claire, more of Wesker fighting with Chris, etc.) and other new features still under wraps. Maybe the in-game first-person view cut from the DC version? Super-obsessive RE freaks (like us) will also notice that even Steve's hairstyle has been altered (our guess: Capcom got a call from DiCaprio's lawyers). But the best new addition would have to be the playable demo of RE creator Shinji Mikami's next title, Devil May Cry, that will come with REC: VX in Japan, and hopefully here too.
