Resident Evil 4 for Gamecube™ - A terrifying new chapter in the world renowned series and certainly one of the best games ever shipping now

Ever since Capcom's Resident Evil series (known as Biohazard in Japan) first appeared on PlayStation™ back in 1996, it has attracted millions of fans all over the globe. In 2002, previous PlayStation™ ports found a new home on Nintendo's Gamecube™ console - a total of 5 Resident Evil/Biohazard adventures were published during the last 3 years.

Announced in the end of 2002, Resident Evil 4 has been in development for more than 2 years - and is also the first brand new and unique Resident Evil adventure on Gamecube™ since the release of Resident Evil Zero.

Being hyped by the international press as one of the best Gamecube™ titles ever, Resident Evil 4 is also one of the top ranked games at all time on Play-Asia.com - presold evenly with Tomy's Naruto: Gekitou Ninja Taisen 3 (released in the end of November 2004).

As a small confirmation, the game has been tested with the latest version of the Freeloader (1.06B) and is confirmed to be working fine on Japanese as well as PAL Gamecube™ consoles.

Resident Evil 4 is available as:

Resident Evil 4US US$ 49.90
Resident Evil 4 (w/ biohazard4 umbrella)US presold

Though both titles are priced identically, please take notice about the higher shipping fee once choosing the item that includes the free preorder gift. The biohazard4 branded umbrella features a biohazard4 logo embedded on the grip as well as its surface. The item is shipping randomly in either gray light green (similar to Leon's T-shirt) or dark black color. The dark black version is limited to 200pcs with an approx. 50% allocation shipped through us.

Below you will find some pictures of the collectible for your reference, taken from our black colored sample.

Game description

In this latest installment of the wildly popular franchise, players are reacquainted with Leon S. Kennedy, Raccoon City's idealistic rookie cop from Resident Evil 2. In the six years since the destruction of Raccoon City, the U.S. government has been able to destroy the nefarious Umbrella Corporation.
