It's easily one of the most popular games of the year, so when Capcom announced the The Alternative Edition for Japan, North American gamers were a little peeved.
However, you needn't worry. As reported by GameSpot , this new edition that features all-new content plus support for Sony's new motion-sensing controller will be US-bound in the form of downloadable content. You'll be able to nab it off the PlayStation Network or Xbox Live Marketplace this coming spring, and that should give you a good excuse to revisit the land of the walking dead. Also, for all you veteran fans, you should know that this Alternative Edition boasts two heroes from yesteryear: Chris Redfield and Jill Valentine. They'll be included in a new episode that is based on that flashback scene you encounter in the RE5 storyline and in all honesty, we can't wait to see our favorite RE characters again. They're kinda like icons in the survival/horror genre, you know? RE5 is the type of game that could always use extra content; excuses to justify another play-through and come spring, y'all might be interested in that idea. Then again, maybe you're already anticipating RE6…
We don't have a price just yet but we'll give you that info when it becomes available. We might not get the disc, but we're getting the next best thing!
