Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Will Finally Infect PlayStation 3 In March Next Year.

That headline contained a pun so awful it could probably wipe out humanity through a chorus of collective groans. Seeing as we're still here, writing this story, we're going to guess that we got away with it.

On topic: after lowing the game's commercial expectations earlier in the week, Capcom has attached a March 20th North American release date to its Slant Six developed squad shooter Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City. Pre-orders from a variety of retailers will net players with an additional character costume and two bonus weapons.

A limited edition version of the game will also be made available featuring a steelbook, Umbrella Security Service embroidered patch, Spec Ops Field Unit embroidered patch, and eight bonus weapons.
