298w ago - Sketchy details emerged early last week about the possibility of yet another version of Resident Evil 4 being readied for the marketplace.

But is this truth or nothing more than an elaborate April Fools' joke?
According to Web site 'The Horror is Alive', this is definitely the truth and nothing but the truth, with Capcom eager to squeeze even more sales out of the highly rated entry into the popular Resident Evil franchise.

When asked what's coming up from Capcom, he replied, "We have a really fantastic year ahead of us, a year that's going to include games like... Resident Evil 5...".
