Resident Evil fans with itchy trigger fingers might have something to add to their holiday gift list this year. According to retailer GameStop, Capcom's Wii-exclusive Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles is set to hit shelves on November 17 of this year.
While retailer listings aren't always the final word on this kind of stuff, it's interesting to note that GameStop had previously had the game listed for a general release sometime in March of 2010. The listing was recently and suddenly changed to the earlier, rather specific, November release date. Capcom. A quick check in with the brick and mortar stores tells us that its system hasn't been updated, still showing the March 2010 release.
The trailers and marketing materials for The Darkside Chronicles simply states it will release in this Winter, which could mean late 2009 (like say, November 17?) or early 2010 (March, perhaps). Capcom isn't ready to talk specifics on the release yet, either.
"Capcom has yet to announce an official release date for Resident Evil: The Darkside Chronicles," they told us today.
