Japan’s Famitsu magazine carries within it some long-awaited Resident Evil 5 info this week. Could this be the first indication of the title’s big reveal?

At the beginning of this year, conservatives seemed to think that it was unlikely RE5 would make it out in 2008. However, murmurs have begun to rumor that it will make a surprise appearance…this fall.

The new info isn’t extensive, but there is a video on the Capcom 25th Anniversary DVD included with the magazine that has a brief interview and shows the game up and running in a few short clips. You can even watch it here:

The featured gameplay takes place in a bright village locale– thought to be Africa– and looks to be based closely on RE4. Melee and context specific actions will return.

The game is definitely looking sharp and Capcom, in a slick move, may be sneaking up on us with this one.
