Capcom Entertainment today announced the release of Resident Evil Gaiden, a new chapter in Capcom’s acclaimed Resident Evil series for the Game Boy Color system. Resident Evil Gaiden is a combination of the survival-horror and first person shooting genres featuring well-known characters Barry Burton and Leon Kennedy. Resident Evil Gaiden was developed for Capcom by Virgin Interactive and has been rated “T” for teens by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.

Resident Evil Gaiden will include the following features:

Multiple players to control – Players control three characters – Barry Burton, Leon Kennedy or the new character, Lucia.

Dramatic cut-scenes – Resident Evil Gaiden will feature slide-show animation that will progress the story along and provide answers to the secrets that lie ahead.

Challenging gameplay – From finding keys, putting out fires and switching on power generators, Gaiden features all of the mind-bending puzzles that players have come to expect from the Resident Evil series.

Two genres in one – As players explore, they will view their character and surroundings in 3D isometric view. Once battle takes place, the action shifts to first-person mode, where players must face the evil zombies or fail.

Two modes of play – Top down exploration and first-person combat

Amazing graphics – Resident Evil Gaiden offers some of the strongest visuals ever on the Game Boy Color. With stunning graphics and detailed storyline, players will forget entirely that they are playing on a handheld system.

Intelligent enemies – Enemies can detect players using sight and field of view

In Resident Evil Gaiden, the story begins inside the hideout of the legendary S.T.A.R.S. elite attack force as one of the original members, Barry Burton, discusses a distressing problem with a mysterious elderly woman. A new type of B.O.W. (Bio Organic Weapon) has been developed by the insidious Umbrella corporation and it is believed onboard the luxury cruise liner, Starlight. The Starlight has already begun its voyage to Europe and now rests somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic. Leon S. Kennedy, the acclaimed star of Resident Evil 2, was assigned to eliminate the B.O.W. His last communication confirmed that he was aboard the Starlight, but he hasn’t been heard from since. For an unexplainable reason, Barry can’t figure out why a poem he learned as a child, suddenly has returned to him - “I loathe the ocean and the secrets it holds – forever deep, dark and cold” sending a chill down his spine. Have the horrors of Raccoon City returned?
