Shinji Mikami Won't Play RE5, But You Can... Right Now

CVG reports that the Official Playstation Magazine spoke to Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami recently.  Mikami, now with ex-Capcom studio Platinum Games, isn't exactly looking forward to playing Resident Evil 5.

It'll just cause me stress if I play it. I think it could be fun for gamers to play it, but not for someone who has developed Resident Evil games.

If I see anything in Resident Evil 5 that isn't done well, I'll be angry!

About that last sentence, we wholeheartedly agree.  Adding co-op to a series as popular and well done as Resident Evil is brilliant.  I know what I'll be doing on March 12, when the game is released.

Perhaps you aren't like Mikami, and are anxious to play the game now?  How about a way to play the recently released in Japan demo, without making a bogus Japanese Live account (which might not work anyway)?  Kombo has all the details on how to download the demo files, burn them to a CD, and play it on your 360, regardless of region.  Find out how right here.  The demo even includes co-op, how cool is that?
