Capcom has finally announced Resident Evil 6. Out of nowhere, the game developer raises the curtains on the game and shows a full length trailer at the same time revealing the game's release date. Resident Evil 6 is coming out on November 20, 2012 for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360, with a PC version to be released in the future. Check the trailer after the bump.
Quite a surprise to see the first look of the game at the same time a release date of this year. In the game's official Twitter account, They mention that the game has been in production for two years.
Coop is said to make its return with of course the traditional single player format.
With Leon S. Kennedy making a return and is pit with yet another incident similar to Raccoon City, Chris Redfield also makes a return dealing with another outbreak in China. It's good to see that Capcom will be placing players on different locations with different protagonists compared to previous games. Chris and Leon are not the only playable characters it seems.
They also seem to adapt a cover system. Shown in the trailer, Chris runs for cover but gets caught by some claw showing its still not safe. Resident Evil 6 also seem to have a lot of variety of enemies to face this time around.
“Resident Evil 6 represents a giant stride forward in the evolution of the series,” said Capcom’s R&D and marketing head Katsuhiko Ichi.
“The development team, led by Hiroyuki Kobayashi, is working tirelessly to deliver the most impressive Resident Evil title ever both in terms of scope and production values. We are all genuinely excited by the title and cannot wait to share it with the world.”
Kobayashi added: “From the outset the team’s intention was to create an experience that delivers a gripping storyline, tense single-player and co-op action all set against a constant theme of horror. We are calling this fusion dramatic horror and are confident it will resonate with both existing fans of the series as well as newcomers.”
The game is looking good, and a bit fast paced. But it might just be the trailer fooling us. I personally didn't like how Resident Evil 5 turned out. Resident Evil 2 and 4 were the better games, so hopefully 6 comes out more as those games or something completely different that will shock us all.
What do you think? is this what we want for the next Resident Evil?
