resi5One of the most anticipated and hyped horror games of the moment is Resident Evil 5, a game that is reported to deliver quite a few unexpected twists and surprises to the franchise’s fans. Until then, Capcom decided to hook us up a little more and revealed the official box art of the upcoming game. Which is, as you can see in the upper left corner, scary and very well done.

The scribblings you can see on the cover were first revealed on the game’s official website, but their exact meaning is still unknown. However, seeing them again on the box art only means that they are quite important. But we’ll tell you as we have more details.

The game presents Chris Redfield, returning Resident Evil hero, who has followed the path of the evil literally around the globe. After joining a new organization, Chris heads to Africa where the latest bioterrorism threat is literally transforming the people and animals of the city into mindless, maddened creatures. Chris must take on the challenge of discovering the truth behind this evil plot. And that will happen pretty soon, since the game is slated for release on March 13, 2009.
