With the help of a great friend, Biohaze has secured high-resolution scans of Biohazard 5 Alternative Edition coverage. This week's issue of Famitsu officially unveiled the presence of Rebecca Chambers and Barry Burton as the final two playable characters in The Mercenaries Reunion for Biohazard 5 Alternative Edition. As we all know, both characters were supporting characters for Chris and Jill during the original Biohazard. Rebecca went on to be the co-star of Biohazard 0, and had a major role in The Umbrella Chronicles. Barry made a cameo in the ending of Biohazard 3: Last Escape and starred in Biohazard Gaiden.
Also in the issue is more coverage of Lost in Nightmares and Desperate Escape. Lost in Nightmares is particularly interesting in that it seems to have camera angles that resemble the remake of Biohazard.
The game hits the PS3 in Japan in 9 days, on February 18, 2010.
I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Barry and Rebecca up until now, either of them should get a fair chance on their own scenario. And if they do plan to make another DLC, then they should make 1 long scenario rather than 2 short ones.
Winner. The reason this DLC sold so much is for one reason alone.
