CAPCOM CONFIRMS RESIDENT EVIL 6
LATEST ADDITION TO THE ICONIC SERIES TO RELEASE ON NOVEMBER 20


London — January 19, 2012 — Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, is very proud to announce that Resident Evil™ 6 is in full development and scheduled for release on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system on November 20, 2012 with a Windows PC version to follow. Blending action and survival horror, this latest instalment in the multi-million selling franchise, is the most ambitious, immersive and feature rich title of the series to date and promises to be the dramatic horror experience of the year.

It has been ten years since the Raccoon City incident and the President of the United States has decided to reveal the truth behind what took place in the belief that it will curb the current resurgence in bioterrorist activity. Due to be by the President’s side is his personal friend and Raccoon City survivor, Leon S. Kennedy, but when the venue suffers a bioterrorist attack, Leon is forced to face a President transformed beyond recognition and make his hardest ever decision. At the same time, Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance member, Chris Redfield arrives in China, itself under threat of a bioterrorist attack. With no country safe from these attacks and the ensuing outbreaks, the entire world’s population is united by a common fear that there is no hope left.

In a first for the franchise, Resident Evil 6 sees series favourites Leon and Chris come together to face this unprecedented threat. They will be joined by new characters, each with their own unique perspective and involvement in this relentless dramatic horror experience enacted on a global scale.

“Resident Evil 6 represents a giant stride forward in the evolution of the series,” commented Katsuhiko Ichii, Head of R&D and Global Marketing. “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.”

Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Resident Evil 6’s Executive Producer 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.”

At first i was like 'fuck yeah'...looked like there was gonna be a return to a more slow paced, horror experience like racoon city with actual zombies, then it turned into a retarded shooter, with retarded mechanics and retarded dialogue...resident evil really is dead. Meh.

At least the Leon scenario would be interesting. But the rest will be dudebro shooting stuff, sadly. :(

The problem is you'll probably have to endure the shitty chris sections to get any sort of value from the game, or to see the whole story. Seems like another rental, much like RE5 was.

Looks like a fucking sausage fest. Rainbow 6 with zombies. Where's Jill? Claire? And what's up with Leon's design? He's a little too old to be rocking the Bieber

You never know..they might be showing alotsa action scenes just to make it all look ...vavoom and stuff.

As with the revelations trailers. They start slow and end up in action scenes. And trust me Revelations is everything BUT action-based.

So I believe that they will somehow make it survival horror with action parts. Instead of Action all the way like Resi5.

Even Resi 4's trailer/game starts the same. Slow at beginnings and then more action.

Leon is all Resident evil needs.

I ... don't know. I'll just wait for more footage.
Commented on 2012-01-19 23:48:39
I love the fact they gave Leon his iconic leather jacket back!

His previous one was stolen by a ganado who actually walked the town wearing it.

Is it before RE5?

That would make sense if it is.
Commented on 2012-01-20 00:04:05
Oh joy, another mindless shooter. Resi used to be a real stand out, but no more.

Exactly what I was thinking. It's brain dead dreck. Surely we have enough shooters now, don't we?

    Megido @Sdarts: Don't hate on pixel art you douche :) (23 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Industry Icon is not usually for one game, but your contribution to the gaming industry I feel. There are several developers that I feel deserved it before Kojima I should have said. (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And heck one of my main complaints about the Monkey Island 1 remake is that you can't play the talky version with the OG graphics. Pixels don't offend me. (26 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A GOG version would be.. pretty much ScummVM. And you totally do not need HD assets to enjoy LucasArts games. Played Sam & Max Hit the Road like two months ago. It's still beautiful. (26 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts If only GOG had a version. Either way, an HD remaster made just to work with new systems and some HD assets is all I need. (29 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Megido: Lost the CD a long time ago between movings. I have used ScummVM and VirtualBox before, but playing though a window or fullscreen at very low resolutions does more harm than good. (31 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Sdarts: If you have the original you can just play it with ScummVM :) (45 minutes ago)
