Capcom confirms US package will not include Memory Card 59 ala Japan

GameCube fans will be disappointed to learn that unlike the Japanese version of the game, Resident Evil will not ship with a bundled Memory Card 59 when it launches in the States on 30th April.

Resident Evil, a remake of the 32-bit daddy of survival horror, has received mixed reviews since its release in Japan, with some publications marking it very highly and others criticizing the game for the same old Capcomisms.
