Title

BIOHAZARD i SURVIVOR

BIOHAZARD i SURVIVOR is a cell phone game that was released exclusively on the i-mode service in Japan. Consequently very little is known about this portable game, although it appears to be a hybrid card based action game.

Overview

i-Survivor sees the introduction of new S.T.A.R.S Members in a card based videogame. Main locations in this game looks to be Raccoon Hospital with the heroes encountering Zombie Cops and Cerberus. Also, the power station is a main location for the action. i-Survivor plays out in a Top Trumps card battle game, something akin to Metal Gear Acid.

Development History

Developed by LivingMobile2, the use of i-Mode technology allows a local area network to connect groups of players into one network and work corperatively to solve the mysteries of Raccoon City. Players can team up from their cellphones to defeat Zombies. Furthermore players can trade information, weaponary and Green Herbs.3i-Survivor was never released in Western terratories due to the lack of coverage and the overall popularity of the i-mode service. With Wifi becoming a mainstay on many high end cellphones, i-mode has ceased to be an essential addition. The service was mainly used by MAC owners to sync their Notebook and mobile phone contacts.

The service went live in Japan in Spring of 2001, but it is unknown as to whether or not it is still operating.

Canonicity

Despite i-Survivor having clear and direct references to the main franchise, indeed it cites clearer than any of the Confidential Report games ever did, the fact remains, i-Survivor is a non-canon entry in the franchise. Developed by a 3rd party, and in this case, regular cellphone developer, LivingMobile, it is not an in-house title, and subsequently it has to be deemed non-canon.

It also introduces created S.T.A.R.S members confirming this game to be a non-canon entry.
