3D Resident Evil 5 coming to PC

EA Sports may be turning its back on boxed PC releases, but rival publisher Capcom has announced that it will be releasing both boxed and digital versions of some of its biggest titles on PC this year.

The headline title is next-gen hit Resident Evil 5, which will be released on the platform ‘later in the year’. First, however, will come the releases of Street Fighter IV and Bionic Commando this July.

All three titles will be fully optimised for the PC and include additional content not included in the console releases.

Street Fighter IV, for instance, will boast a higher screen resolution than the console versions as well as some new shading techniques (‘watercolour,’ ‘poster’ and ‘sumi-e ink’) giving the game a graphical feel similar to the artistic trailers that were knocking about last year.

Perhaps more surprising is the news that Resident Evil 5 will be enhanced with support for Nvidia’s GeForce 3D Vision technology, which will require the use of 3D glasses.
