a) An RE5 (Biohazard 5) demo which covers two stages in the African town of Kijuju and has co-op play will be released on Xbox LIVE on December 5th in Japan available to gold members only. The Capcom Blog makes mention of a PSN demo for PS3 and that the North Amercian demos will arrive at a later date sometimes after the JPN demo.
b) The Japan release for RE5 has been moved up to March 5, 2009 and the rest will still remain at March 13, 2009.
c) Capcom's e-Capcom sales site in Japan will be selling a LE version of RE which includes:
- a 32-page all color art bookSource: IGN (UK), 1up
- a complete with exclusive staff commentary
- a BSAA waist pouch that's meant to look like an item Chris wears in the game
- a 2 gigabyte USB memory card shaped like an anti virus item from the game

Here's hoping we'll hear more on this (such as worldwide mentions of at least the demo) in the coming weeks.
