Resident Evil 6 To Be Yet Another Revamp?

Posted in Rumours with tags , , , on April 19, 2011 by Cazza

A recent comment from Masachika Kawata of Capcom has revealed that the next entry in the Resident Evil series may be another complete revamp. This is what Masachika had to say on Resident Evil 6;

“The series will see a complete renovation with the next entry on every level. But we can’t forget about all the previous entries that have led to the creation of many possibilities for the franchise. I can’t say if we’re going to make it (Resident Evil 6) survival horror or a shooter, but I can say that it’ll be totally different.”

I say we can take this as confirmation that Resident Evil 6 is going to be something we’ve never seen from the series. With Operation Racoon City bringing about a change to the series too, it seems Capcom are becoming quite experimental with the franchise. E3 is just around the corner so who knows? Maybe they’ll shed some light on this then.



Resident Evil: Revelations is looking promising

As a huge fan of Capcom’s 2009 title; Resident Evil 5, and subsequent additions to the long running franchise, I must admit I was concerned that the newest instalment would be hitting Nintendo’s 3DS.
I was afraid the game would not control as well as the console titles that came before it.
After this video hit the web today, my fears were thankfully put at ease.

The controls are displayed in Japanese on the lower screen in this tech demo. As I have little to no understanding of the language, I cannot tell which action corresponds to which action. From what I gather, you use the Right Shoulder Button to aim, at which point, you are thrown into first person perspective, ala Dead Aim. The Left Shoulder Button will be used to fire, and ‘Y‘ will be used as your ‘Action Button‘.

Not a lot of gameplay was shown, but what was available has me very excited. The one thing I wish Capcom would implement, is an option to keep the game a fully third person experience.
