Resident Evil: Operation Racoon City was said to have a Winter 2012 release date - and it looks like the game is, well, it's going to miss it by one day. The four player online co-op game is slated to be released on March 20th, 2012 according to Capcom. Along with the news of its release date comes new screenshots and information about a special edition.
Fans who pre-order the game with GameStop, Amazon.com, or Best Buy will receive one additional costume for each of the six playable characters in Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, along with two bonus weapons that are unique for each retailer. A Special Edition of Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City will also be available featuring a copy of the Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City game, a Steelbook with exclusive art, stylized foil sleeve, Umbrella Security Service embroidered patch, Spec Ops Field Unit embroidered patch, and all 8 bonus weapons.
In related news, Capcom downgraded its sales targets on the game; estimating the PC, 360, and PS3 copies of the game would collectively move 2 million copies - down 500k from the original 2.5 million estimated. 2 million copies of a game is still very respectable and the latest screens definitely make the game look really slick.
