Some blurry scans have been making the rounds showing a few new screenshots of Resident Evil 5, but now GamesRadar has got the real images right from Capcom. The first few all seem to be taken from the trailers we’ve already seen, but the last ten they posted today are all new, including a look at a brand new character.
Looks like Chris isn’t going to be alone; he’s seen accompanied by a woman in these pictures. It doesn’t look like anyone we’ve seen before in the series, and if the rumors flying around right now are true, a second player will be able to take control of her, and you’ll be able to do online co-op.
Given that the first Resident Evil was originally planned to have co-op, and that it’s a feature that’s never yet made it into the series, the inclusion of co-op in Resident Evil 5 would be a huge feature and would make perfect sense with the series’ propensity for always featuring two main characters rather than one.
And yes, that’s definitely a chainsaw of some sort…
