Seems like everything fun happens in California, and the Resident Evil 5 launch is going to be no exception.

Capcom’s confirmed in this blog post that “new game announcements” will be made at the party, to take place on San Francisco’s Union Square on Thursday, March 12.

Attendees will be able to get a glimpse of RE5 developers Takeuchi-san and Kawata-san, play the game before they buy it, win prizes, meet the motion capture and voice actors, and participate in all sorts of other revelry.

To get in, head on over to the Powell Street GameStop before the party, get a wrist band and proof of purchase from your RE5 transaction, then go have a bit of fun.
