Capcom was busy today, with a date announced for the PC version of Resident Evil 5
. Expect to find it on store shelves (and possibly your favorite digital download site) on September 15th in North America and Sept 18th in Europe. The PC version will probably be worth the wait for some, as it adds the snazzy NVIDIA GeForce 3D Vision technology, new costumes and improved mercenary mode with 3x the amount of baddies. If you can’t wait to September, check out the game at Comic Con this weekend in San Diego in Booth #5133 and at PAX later in the Fall. I can say that the 3D stuff is pretty cool, as we experienced it
at CES and John talked about it
