A splattering of new info on Resident Evil 5 has come from the pages of Famitsu that says there's be a new trailer soon.
The nuts and bolts of the info has been rounded up in a NeoGAF post, which says a new female character (shown holding a shotgun, wearing a tank top and boots similar to Jill's in RE3) will appear.
From the info gleamed it sounds like Capcom is looking at making light and dark areas of the environment dynamic in terms of how the game will play. According to the post 'there will be an intense contrast between light and dark'. How that'll go past 'I can't see in the dark' to 'oh, I've got a flash light now I can see' remains to be seen.
Famitsu has got its hands on new artwork too, which depicts "Chris fighting villagers near a crashed helicopter, that same helicopter flying amidst a smoke-filled sky, and Chris witnessing the helicopter being shot down." Someone, or something, crash lands then.
We'll keep a look out for the trailer and let you know when you can see it.
