As we so craftily implied with the quotes in the above headline, this Resident Evil 5 trailer
isn't technically new. It was actually shown at the 2008 Tokyo Game Show
. The catch, you see, is that it was only
shown at the Tokyo Game Show, and we were all prevented from seeing it in its full, high definition glory. But that was the past, as the trailer is now available to one and all and it's a doozy
. Seriously, this sucker is over five minutes long. It's probably the closest look at the game's story that we've been given so far -- what's Umbrella doing in an African cave? -- and it has a extra strength dose of Wesker
. Be sure to watch the whole thing, as Jill Valentine makes a cameo (of sorts).
Also, for those who'd rather watch from the couch, the trailer is now available on Xbox Live Marketplac
e as well.
