Capcom has launched the Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition website and it is all looking very good. Planned for March the 12th, the new edition will contain Resident Evil 5 (of course), two new episodes called Desperate Escape and Lost In Nightmares, four new costumes, The Mercenaries Reunion and extra Versus characters. The Mercenaries Reunion sounds very good. In it, players are placed in a timed situation and the only way to extend your time is by racking up those kills. Sounds a bit like the old arcade games but you need kills, not coins, to keep going.The PS3 version will have all the content on disc, whereas the Xboxers will need to download the additional content using the provided voucher.
The box art has been revealed too and it definitely is very gold.
All the the extra DLC will also be made available on the PSN and Xbox Live over the coming months, in case you already have Resident Evil 5. Each new episode will be $4.99 (400 MSP) and the costume packs will be $1.99 (160 MSP).
The trailer for the new episodes is below for your viewing pleasure.
