Capcom clarified today at Gamescom that the Resident Evil 5
patch that introduces Move functionality will be available on September 19 (the same day Move launches
). As previously mentioned
, the automatically downloaded patch will only be available for the Gold Edition
of the game. If you live in Italy or Spain you didn't get a "gold edition," but Capcom is releasing Resident Evil 5: Move Edition
in those countries.
A Capcom representative also let us know that folks playing together will be able to play co-op online or offline with any supported controller configurations (a Move and Navigation Controller pair can play alongside a DualShock 3, for instance). The Move controls (and all the other control options) will be available in the main story, Mercenaries and bonus episodes.
