Resident Evil 5 demo 'unlikely' this year

Resident Evil 5 demo 'unlikely' this year

While Japan will get a Resident Evil 5 demo this year, the rest of us will have to wait until sometime next year.

This news post is half news, half apology. Last night you see, I got Richard all excited when I told him I'd heard a co-op demo for Resident Evil 5 was coming to the Xbox 360. You should have seen him tremble with excitement.

As it turns out though, I was wrong.

According to Capcom the Resident Evil 5 demo will be hitting consoles on December 5th, but only in Japan. Sorry, Rich.

Capcom confirmed today that Western fans won't be getting a Resident Evil 5 demo this year at all, with not even a vague date announced for the demo in America and Europe.

In fact, in Japan, the release date has been moved forward to the 5th of March, while in other regions it remains as Friday the 13th. Unlucky, that.

Of course, just because the demo is only officially hitting in Japan doesn't mean that American and European players won't be able to get their hands on it. As Eurogamer coyly points out, PlayStation 3 gamers at least will be able to access the demo by tinkering with their regional settings.

The flip side to that of course is that you'll have to play the entire demo in Japanese. Is it worth the sacrifice? Let us know what you think in the forums.

It's resident evil, and a demo! I'm sure the gist of what you're trying to do will make it across the language barrier. Maybe the dialogue will actually seem less retarded in Japanese (unlikely, but one can hope) :P

This is why I made that Japanese account on my PS3 :)

You don't need to know a foreign language to know you should SHOOT the bag-headed monster wielding the massive axe.
