Capcom Announces "Resident Evil® 4: iPad Edition"

Legendary Survival Horror Series Available for iPad on App Store

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - April 3, 2010) - Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, today announced that "Resident Evil 4: iPad Edition" is now available on the App Store. The game features a new high-resolution art set designed to take full advantage of iPad's larger display. The improved graphics capture the "Resident Evil" world in terrifying detail, making the gaming experience even more immersive.

It has been six years since the destruction of Raccoon City. Leon S. Kennedy, formerly Raccoon City Police Department's idealistic rookie cop, is now a U.S. agent with a top-secret mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the President's daughter. Leon begins his investigation in an undisclosed Spanish-speaking village in Europe, where he encounters a horde of unruly villagers who pledge their lives to Los Illuminados, the cult that perpetrated Ashley's kidnapping. As Leon encounters unimaginable horrors, he must find out who or what is behind everything.

Since its inception, the "Resident Evil" series has sold more than 42 million copies worldwide including the recently released "Resident Evil: Degeneration™" and "Resident Evil 4" App for iPhone and iPod touch. For the iPad version, Capcom has leveraged user feedback from the App Store and added numerous platform specific enhancements to create the finest portable "Resident Evil" game to date.

Additionally, "Resident Evil 4: iPad Edition" uses an enhanced Visual Pad control system that makes gameplay a more fluid and intuitive experience. Players can engage in running gun fights against crowds of enemies, climb ladders, equip binoculars and jump out windows.
