Capcom has released some new screens for Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, showing off the new outfits that are set to arrive via retail and DLC.
Sheva looks so business-like in some.

Capcom has released a couple videos, showing off the outfits Chris and Sheva can wear in the Mercenaries Reunion DLC for Resident Evil 5.
While Sheva’s “Fairy Tale” outfit resembles a strippers rendition of Little Red Riding Hood, Chris’s outfit, “Warrior,” looks a bit Village People meets Mad Maxx. To us at least.
A boxed copy of Resident Evil 5 (Gold Edition) containing all DLC released, plus Lost in Nightmares, Mercenaries Reunion, costumes and another TBA episode will retail for $49.99 as a single Blu-ray disc for PS3 or as a DVD with a token for the downloadable content for Xbox 360 on March 9.
Lost in Nightmares and Costume Pack 1 will be released on February 17 and 18 for 360 and PS3, respectively.
Another episode (title TBA) along with Costume Pack 2 will hit on March 3 and 4 for 360 and PS3 respectively.

Below the break there’s a video for the Lost in Nightmares portion of the DLC for Resident Evil 5, or the Gold Edition – however you prefer it.
We posted this video before, but since the news of the Gold Edition was announced, we decided to post it again.
At first we thought we’d dreamt of posting it before because it took a while to find it. We even thought Capcom may have beamed it into our brain while we slept innocently in our bed – but no. It was posted way back on October 1.
Anyway, here it is again courtesy of Joystiq.

A video for the motion control-enabled Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition is posted past the break, courtesy of Joystiq.
It’s basically RE5 with a new flashback mission starring Jill Valentine set in the Spencer Mansion, but spruced up with jiggling of the PS3 controller.
Capcom’s Jun Takeuchi said at TGS that the new content may come to 360, but in a “different format,” meaning a possible release on XBL.
More through the link.

Patricia Ja Lee, the voice actress for Jill Valentine, has revealed that she will reprise her role for the character in Resident Evil 5: The Director’s Cut.
Granted, a Director’s Cut has not been announced despite this being TGS week, and Lee may be referring to DLC instead.
Who knows really. We will mail Capcom and see if anyone bites.
There’s a video of her admission after the break. It happens about seven minutes in.

Looks like some more DLC may be heading to Resident Evil 5, according to Capcom’s Christian Svensson.
Speaking with VG247 during its latest podcast, Svensson stated that currently the firm is discussing the possibility of releasing more downloadable content for the title, and is looking to the community for ideas and suggestions.
“We’re talking about it. I don’t know if you have seen some of the threads on Capcom Unity, but questions came up on whether we are going to do any more,” he said. “I asked what people would want to see and that spawned a thread that was literally hundreds of posts long and had tens of thousands of views.
“I mentioned that thread to the team and we have discussed it ever since. So I will leave it at that.”
More DLC is always a good thing. Especially when it involves shooting parasite infected enemies out to get you.

Resident Evil 5 producer, Masachika Kawata, sat down with PC Games Hardware to talk about the technology and pecs behind the PC version.
During the interview, Kawata talk about Capcom’s MT Framework engine, physics, pipeline rendering, and other techie stuff some of you may like.
“We use our own proud game engine, ‘MT Framework’,” he said. “The current version is compatible to PC (DX9/DX10), Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 formats. It allows the sharing of application source code and resources for each platform that exempts us from the need of individually developing for each platform in case of a multi-platform title such as RE5.
“Also, by continually researching and developing a game engine internally we can maintain high standards of technology and stay up to date. This then means that we can alter the engine as we like, even when we update the hardware. Another benefit is that it allows information sharing between systems and applications so the application could demand a change to the system or vice versa, very speedily.”

Starting today at 6.00pm EST (3.00 pm PST) members of the Home Community Team and Capcom will enter the RE5 game space to join in co-op gameplay with regular Joes like us.
Play sessions are limited to one chapter of co-op or one match of Versus until 10.00pm EST (7.00pm PST).
Here are the specifics, along with the gamer names you need to look out for:
- Home Moderators will NOT be sporting the yellow text, or MOD/HCS tags as usual, as we’ll be playing on regular PlayStation 3′s and not our special units. We WILL, however, be wearing staff jackets, so that will be the best way to spot us.
- In order to quicken the process, feel free to start your own Game Launching session.
More information can be found on the US PlayStation Blog.
