If you’re patiently waiting for the release of Resident Evil 5: Alternative Edition, and you’re going to buy it even though you’ve already lashed out for the previous version, then not only are you a little like me, but you’re going to be more than a little interested in these tasty tidbits.

The ever timely Magic Box has posted some recently released shots of the new mode. The new mode is set 3 years before, when Chris and Jill pursued Wesker in that creepy-looking mansion we saw in the flashbacks, remember? Man, does this mansion ever look like classic Resident Evil stuff? But with Resident Evil 5’s gameplay and graphics? For that alone, Resident Evil fanboys (like me) will probably already wet themselves. Apparently, the combat system in the game will feature new elements that are completely different to those in the main game – and that doesn’t mean just swinging the motion controller around. There will be gameplay elements featuring the PS3’s upcoming motion controller too, for the PS3 version.

Anyway, Resident Evil fans, check out all the shots here.

This is just too juicy. A piano puzzle section. Come on --- Resident Evil 1 fans, huh? Fanboy moment, come on.
