Capcom’s looking to do something “totally different” for its upcoming Resident Evil title on the PSP, the company said today.

Capcom’s super-confidential Resident Evil Portable had such a bare bones announcement during E3 that you’d be forgiven for forgetting that the game even existed. Now Capcom’s Chris Kramer has divulged some info on the game, but it’s more likely to simply fuel even more groundless speculation than anything else. But hey, it’s something.

Kramer can’t tell us much, but he “can tell you that Capcom is working very closely with Sony on this title, as it’s something that both companies have wanted on the PSP for quite some time.”

Here’s some good news: it’s not a remake of a previous RE game (phew) but “an all-new title created specifically for the PSP platform, with the PSP Go in mind.” Huh, so something that’s designed for hardware that’s defined by its lack of a physical disc drive? Maybe something downloadable, episodic? Maybe “Chris Redfield vs. A Boulder” the game? “I’ve managed to sneak a look at a very early game design document for this title and all I am allowed to say is: Wow. Totally different for a Resident Evil game,” Kramer said.

As for when the game’s going to be coming around, don’t hold your breath. “The game is some ways off, so don’t be expecting this one to come home with you when you upgrade to the PSP Go in the fall,” Kramer said. If we upgrade to the PSP Go in the fall, that is. If.
