When Leon S. Kennedy isn't gunning down zombies in Raccoon City, he's busy updating his actual Twitter feed with details on his fictional struggle for survival. The PR stunt is part of Capcom's recent push to publicize its forthcoming game Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles, which continued today as the publisher announced the game will ship November 17.
Darkside Chronicles is an on-rails shooter sequel to 2007's Resident Evil: The Umbrella Chronicles, which focused on stories from Resident Evil 0, the original Resident Evil, along with other bits of series lore. This time out, up to two players take control of Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield as they revisit locales featured in Resident Evil 2 and Code Veronica.
The Wii has proven to be a virulent breeding ground for Resident Evil games. In addition to the pair of Chronicles spin-offs, Nintendo's catalog already includes Resident Evil 4 and the original Resident Evil on the Wii. Meanwhile, Resident Evil 0 is expected to lurch onto the system later this year.
