Capcom plans to release its latest horror-survival game on two consoles at once, a first for the series.
In an interview published in
Xbox360ism (a special edition of
Dorimaga ), Capcom Research & Development division chief Keiji Inafune said he expects Resident Evil 5 to be released simultaneously on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 if possible.
"We want to grow the Resident Evil series into a multi-platform franchise, so we hope to release it simultaneously [on the two next-generation consoles]," Inafune told
Xbox360ism. "But since we don't know the launch period for the PS3 yet, so it's hard to say [if we can]."
Inafune also revealed that Resident Evil 5 will feature online elements, although he did not elaborate.
