Capcom has pushed the launch of the Versus mode add-on for Resident Evil 5 back to April. Japanese gamers had been promised a 26th March release.

The publisher "deeply apologises" for the delay, according to a short statement on Kotaku.

Capcom will use the extra time to straighten a few issues, ensuring the premium content - which costs USD 5 for PS3 and 400 Microsoft Points (GBP 3.40 / EUR 4.80) for Xbox 360 - delivers.

The Versus mode includes two competitive modes: Slayer's Rule, where you take out zombies for points, and Survivor's Rule, where you take each other out. Both modes support up to four players.
