Capcom Europe is promoting Resident Evil 5 in the United Kingdom by hiding fake body parts around London and encouraging gamers to find them, take them to Westminster Bridge and wave them around screaming “Kijuju.” I kid you not. Capcom is basically going to get its fans arrested or killed.
“Find as many of the bodies as you can, or what is left of them, and return them to Westminster Bridge by 11am,” challenges Capcom. “Alert us to your presence by standing on the bridge, holding the artificial body parts over your head and shouting “Kijuju!”. We will be there, watching you, and will approach when you make yourselves known.”
The publisher will award points depending on what body parts you find. Arms and legs are worth 2 points, torsos are worth 3 points and heads are of course worth 5. The lucky soul who manages to earn enough points without being apprehended by law enforcement will win a trip to Africa. It’s possible they won’t be allowed back into England after they leave.
This is … inventive to say the least. It also has the potential to go incredibly, disastrously wrong and cause a lot of trouble. Either way, I can’t wait to see the fallout of this one. Full press release is after the jump.
The infected have been and gone – but they have left behind the bloodied remains of their victims. Find the bodies on the morning of Thursday March 12th and win a holiday to Africa.
