is it hot in here?The following Resident Evil 5 details have traversed three languages (from Japanese to German to English), so accept with caution. According to Famitsu Xbox, via GameFront, passed along by GamersReports, Capcom won't release the next Resident Evil until 2008, stalled in part by an effort to get the game running at 60 fps.

While the game will attempt greater environmental interactivity, more interestingly, Resident Evil 5 will allegedly feature hot and cold weather changes, affecting certain (unspecified) gameplay mechanics (possibly dehydration, frostbite, etc.). Developers are also focusing on enhancing character models, including facial muscles capable of a full range of expression, and realistic hair and skin rendering.
