TGS09; Resident Evil 5 getting motion controls as well
LittleBigPlanet isn’t the only game to be getting the motion control treatment. Capcom’s popular Resident Evil 5 will also be gaining motion controls similar to the styles of Resident Evil 4 on the Wii. Demoed on stage at the Sony press conference, Jun Takeuchi showed off the game using Sony’s new controller.
Players will use the Dual Shock 3 in one hand, using the trigger buttons to control firing. Using the motion wand in the other hand, you’ll be able to move and look about. If you are attacked and grabbed by a Manjini, you can wave the wand to shake the undead creature off.
While the idea of motion controlled Resident Evil 5 is pretty awesome, we can’t help but wonder about having to hold both the DS3 and wand in each hand, after all, the DS3 wasn’t designed for single-handed use.
Unlike LittleBigPlanet, we get the feeling that this will be a complete re-release of the game. Even the voice actress of Jill Valentine let is slip that Capcom was working on a Director’s Cut version of the game. Perhaps it’ll include the new control scheme along with the Versus DLC and extra content.
