Capcom has revealed that PAL PlayStation 2 owners will be able to sample their own version of the quite wondrous Resident Evil 4 (our only perfect 10, PALGN fact fans) sooner than expected. In a statement released today, the developer announced that the PS2 Resident Evil 4 would be released on November 4th, with the U.S. getting it a little earlier on October 25th.
It's comforting news for PS2 owners, after the absence of the title from Capcom's E3 line-up seemed to point towards a 2006 release. But representatives from Capcom have divulged to us that code of the game is already with print magazines and that the port is 'surprisingly close to the GameCube original', despite the fact that Capcom have had to make some minor sacrifices in terms of texturing and facial detail.
Check back in the near future, and we should have a review up for you.
