Capcom hopes to 'heat up' Resident Evil series to coincide with next film

While the undead are typically characterized as being cold & clammy -- not to mention their whole penchant for eating the living -- Capcom COO Haruhiro Tsujimoto says he hopes to "heat up" the zombie-fueled Resident Evil game franchise to coincide with Resident Evil: Afterlife's arrival in theaters this fall.

"The 3D movie Resident Evil IV Afterlife starring Milla Jovovich is scheduled to hit theaters on September 10. Timed with the movie's release, we'd like to do something to heat up the game series," Tsujimoto told with Japanese business journal Nikkei BP. Whether that means a new game announcement, the release of a current RE title on a new platform or ... well, anything really wasn't specified. What we do know is that Tokyo Game Show 2010 will open a mere six days following the film on September 16, making it ideally timed for such a "hot" game announcement.
