Capcom Hosting Resident Evil 5 Blood Drive


Capcom is marking the launch of Resident Evil 5 in the U.S. by holding a blood drive at the World of Wonder gallery on Hollywood Blvd. in Los Angeles.

Being held on March 13 by Capcom and the American Red Cross, the blood drive will offer Resident Evil fans a chance to do a good thing and earn some sweet loot in the process. People who donate blood will receive exclusive Resident Evil 5 Blood Drive swag created just for the event including hand-numbered posters, bumper stickers and buttons as well as a chance to win copies of the game and even one of “several” limited edition red Resident Evil Xbox 360 systems.

Capcom will also have kiosks running Resident Evil 5 set up for the event, so anxious gamers can get some hands-on experience with the game while helping out their fellow man. And since Capcom will be giving away copies of the game, they recommend donating blood before buying your own copy – on top of everything else, you might even save a few bucks.

Drop-ins are welcome but Capcom is asking gamers who plan to attend to sign up in advance at
