RE5 Alternative Edition DLC Coming to North America and Europe

The official Capcom blog announced today that extra content included in the upcoming Japanese release of "Resident Evil 5 Alternative Edition," will be available in North America and Europe as downloadable content for the Xbox 360 and PS3.

"You will not be asked to purchase a new copy of the game just to get at the new stuff," states the announcement, "just make sure to hold on to your RE5 disc and you'll be ready to roll in Spring 2010." Pricing for the DLC hasn't been announced, but the post also mysteriously alludes to, "some other things we haven't told you about yet," and cautions against selling or trading away your copy of the game.

As reported, the method of distribution was partly decided by the results of an online poll conducted by Capcom. Of the nearly 2,400 respondents, roughly 1,500 voted for DLC, while almost 900 voted for physical packaging.

    Wow, that's kind of cool that Capcom listened to people.

    I wonder if they'd do the same for SFIV. :(

      Doesn't look that way and this is probably to say "Sorry!"

      SSFIV is a different scenario altogether, a MUCH larger batch of new content, characters, and modes. They did say that there is a reward for those of us that kept our SFIV discs, so hang on too it.
