Bandages are sexy?

New scans from Famitsu reveals Ada’s bandaged look for Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles. The game came out this week so more news should be out shortly. I’m definitely picking up a Wii Zapper so this is on my short list of titles I’m interested in, but $50 is pretty steep.

In addition to the snow suits shown previously, this is an exciting trend of variant/new outfits for familiar characters. I’m not a fan of bandages as a fashion statement though.

Holiday Costume Outlook

Guitar Hero III - I picked this up the other day and hope to have some costume pics next week. Once again there is at least one alternate outfit, but there are a whole bunch more color and style variations. Hopefully there are more than what I’ve seen already.

Virtua Fighter 5 Xbox 360 – I haven’t had time to pick this up, but I’m both excited and a bit intimidated by its promise of 75% more items to buy/unlock over the PS3 version.

Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles – RE games almost always have extra costumes although I’m not sure how useful it will be since you don’t see your character that much. These snow outfits are new. Most likely they are just tied to a new level and not something that is unlocked. We’ll see.

Folklore – Aside from VF5, this probably has the most costume potential. It’s been out for a few weeks and I’ve been waiting to see if there is some holiday sale before committing.

Soul Calibur Legends – None of the footage or screens I’ve seen so far reveal extra outfits. This is going to greatly depend on impulses at the store that week.

Rock Band – I don’t know if there are featured characters like in GH so that will determine whether outfits are involved. At this point I’m only planning on buying the game (that is if the GH controller still works with it) and picking up drums whenever they become available (I already have mics).
