Capcom will usher in the launch of RESIDENT EVIL 5 (on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3) on Friday, March 13 by partnering with the American Red Cross to host a blood drive. On the way to pick up copies of RESIDENT EVIL 5, gamers in the L.A. area will be invited to give back to the community by donating blood at the World of Wonder gallery on Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood, California from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
In addition, fans of the series will have the chance to get exclusive limited-edition RESIDENT EVIL 5 Blood Drive collectibles, win copies of the game, enter a raffle for one of several exclusive red Xbox 360 RESIDENT EVIL limited edition consoles and most importantly, do their part to help a good cause.
Kiosks showcasing the game will also be on-hand for fans to get a sneak peek at the eagerly anticipated new game before heading to retailers to buy their own copy. Generous fans who donate blood will receive exclusive RESIDENT EVIL 5 limited edition items created specifically for this event, including a series of hand-numbered stylized posters, bumper stickers, buttons and a chance to win a copy of the game or an exclusive red Xbox 360 RESIDENT EVIL limited edition console.
All "Type O" fans will learn that they can "B Positive" agents for their community, and they will find that "AB"-it of blood can go a long way.
Those who would like to participate can pledge and schedule appointments by visiting Capcom-Unity.com. For more information on blood donation eligibility requirements visit http://www.givelife2.org/donor/faq.asp.
