Capcom just sent an email over detailing news about their newest announcement for Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero getting an official ship date. The game will ship December 1st, 2009. Just in time for the holiday's, the game will have an estimated MSRP of $29.99.
Prequel to the game that started a multi-million dollar franchise, Resident Evil Archives: Resident Evil Zero exposes the back story and internal tyranny of the Umbrella Corporation and lets players discover the origins of the T-Virus in an epic storyline that tells the horrors leading up to the infamous mansion incident.
Only available on the Nintendo GameCube until now, Resident Evil Zero brings Rebecca Chambers – rookie member of S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team – to Raccoon City , where she must investigate a series of gruesome murders. Almost immediately she stumbles upon a military transport truck filled with corpses and her journey of horror begins.
Along the way Rebecca meets Billy Coen, an ex-Marine convicted on circumstantial evidence for the murder of 23 people. Players will get to control both Rebecca and Billy simultaneously using the Partner Zapping system, as they fight their way out of Raccoon City in the last of the main titles to use the original Resident Evil gameplay system prior to Resident Evil 4.
