Japan queues for Resident Evil 5

Capcom horror sequel released in the Far East today

Famitsu has released pictures of the mounting Japanese queues for Resident Evil 5, which is released in the Far East today.

Sadly, no fit Japanese cosplayers turned up in super sexy Sheva gear, but it's nice to see that being spotted queuing for a 360 in Japan is no longer as embarrassing as a 16-year-old inching into the chemist for some condoms.

The long-awaited Resi 4 follow-up arrives in the west next week on Friday, March 13.


Joining it is the special edition 'blood red' Xbox 360 bundle which comes packaged with a copy of the game and lots of red accessories.

Look for our review in the next few days.
