If the real question left burning in your mind after playing Resident Evil 5 was "Where's Barry?!?", Capcom has your father-figure action ready courtesy of Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition. Resident Evil alumnus Barry Burton and Rebecca Chambers (who scored a starring role of her own in Resident Evil 0) are the latest S.T.A.R.S. members to make the jump to the Gold Edition release of RE5.
To be sure, both characters are only playable in RE5 Gold's Mercenaries Reniuon mode, which is a bonus, time-based minigame separate from the main game and promises "hours of additional gameplay". Players who already own the regular edition of RE5 can choose to grab all the new content in RE5 Gold as DLC instead, assuming they don't feel like purchasing the Gold edition outright when it launches on March 9th, 2010.
As you may have guessed, Barry and Rebecca won't be made available in the same DLC bundle. Barry will be included alongside Excella Gionne in the "Lost in Nightmares" DLC to be released next Wednesday (next Thursday on PSN). Meanwhile, Rebecca fans will need to wait for the "Desperate Escape" DLC currently scheduled for March 3rd (or 4th on PSN), which also includes Josh Stone as an additional character. Both DLC are priced at $4.99 USD (or 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox LIVE).
