The blood drive for RE5

As we noted here a little more than a week ago, Capcom was having their blood drive today to not only help trumpet the release of Resident Evil 5, but also to aid the perpetually good cause of donating blood. We weren’t there, but they sent over some shots. Take a look. The event drew in a few hundred.

Capcom wants you to bleed

To help promote Resident Evil 5‘s launch on Friday, March 13, Capcom and the American Red Cross are going to be hosting a blood drive at the World of Wonder Gallery from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In addition to the happy feeling you get when you give blood, you’ll also be privy to blood drive swag, chances to grab copies of the game, and your name entered into a drawing for a red RE-themed 360. No word yet on whether it’s the same shade of red as the RROD. Also, you’ll get a chance to play the game at various gaming stations.
