Resident Evil 4 Gets Yellow Penciled

Capcom survival horror Resident Evil 4 wins a coveted "Yellow Pencil" design award from The D&AD Global Awards 2006
Capcom love Nintendo when they get it right, and hate them when they don't. The much talked about "exclusive rights" for Resident Evil for Gamecube wasn't all bad, in fact it resulted in an excellent Resident Evil 4 game that was loved by the public. Hurrah. It seems the industry has recognised this as Resident Evil 4 receives another award, this time by UK based organisation D&AD.
The critically acclaimed Resident Evil 4 received another when it was awarded a highly prestigious Yellow Pencil at the The D&AD Global Awards 2006 that took place earlier this week. The awards recognise the very best in design, advertising and creative communication around the world, and are judged by the world’s leading creative practitioners. This year was the first time videogames were acknowledged with their own category and Resident Evil 4 picked up the award for Outstanding Achievement.
We're sure that said yellow pencil will already be being used by the designers currently working on Resident Evil Wii. Congratulations Capcom.
