The Resident Evil® series has sold over 40 million units since the original game was released in 1996 and has spawned a multi-million dollar trilogy of films from Sony Pictures. Winning numerous awards and widespread positive reviews, Resident Evil® 5 is one of the most talked about and critically acclaimed games of the year. Game Informer honored Resident Evil 5 with "Game of the Month" status and an impressive 9.5/10 review score while PlayStation: The Official Magazine rated Resident Evil 5 with a perfect five-out-of-five score, remarking that "RE5 takes the co-op experience to a new level and reinvigorates the survival horror genre in the process." Lead Composer Kota Suzuki: "As the look of the game has changed from the previous series, I spent many hours trying to figure out how to approach it with music. We tend to relate horror with darkness, but this time the game takes place in Africa with a blazing hot sun." I contemplated on how I could stir the player's emotion by music embodying two opposite elements? After much trial and error, the director came up with a key phrase 'panic horror.' And from there, I put my focus on panic-stricken music for the players. In fact, I did often get panicky while playing this game myself. I wonder what your experiences will be?"

Co-producer and series veterans Jun Takeuchi (Lost Planet®) and Masachika Kawata (Resident Evil® 4 Wii Edition, Resident Evil®: Umbrella Chronicles) unleash an unprecedented level of fear for the new generation in Resident Evil 5, the sequel to one of the highest-rated videogames in history according to and Delivering an unbelievable level of detail, realism and control, Resident Evil 5 brings new fans to the series across the globe.
