Preview Alert: Resident Evil DS

For all the innovation that's present on the platform, it's somewhat unusual to find DS owners getting so fervent about the remake of a 10 year old game that's already been remade once before. Then again, the game in question just so happens to be Resident Evil: Deadly Silence, a title crammed to the brim with, silly plot developments, Jill sandwiches, puzzle-solving amulets and, most importantly, grotesque zombies. What's not to like, right?

1up has posted a nice little preview of Capcom's portable evil, confirming some of the things we were wondering about and detailing some of the differences between the DS version and the original. With a touch-controlled menu, first-person slashing sequences, cooperative wireless play and the ability to literally blow poison back into an attacker's face, it seems like the game makes pretty good use of the DS' abilities. After all, it could have been very easy for Capcom to just slap a map on the top screen, call it a day and watch the franchise rake in the cash.

Now if only we could get a version of Resident Evil 4...

[Update: Corrected a "wi-ly" typo.]
