Resident Evil Rises Again

Capcom announced today that they are developing Resident Evil 6. In other news, bears crap in the woods, water is wet, and the Pope is Catholic.

As you can see in the lovely-looking trailer above, Leon S. Kennedy is chums with the president, who apparently wants to reveal the truth behind the decade-old Raccoon City incident in the hopes of curbing bioterrorism. But when bioterrorists attack the venue (as they do), Leon must face off against a president... transformed. Meanwhile, Chris Redfield heads to a China under bioterrorist attack (they're really busy) and it seems the entire world is under siege. And I'm probably not alone here hoping for some bromantic moments when Chris and Leon... "team up" to defeat the threat.

"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 EvilĀ® 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 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."

Resident Evil 6 is slated to release on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 20, with a PC version to follow. And if you're really super-eager, they've also started their pre-order campaign at GameStop, Best Buy and Amazon.com, with each retailer offering an exclusive map that will function with various modes in the game. Further information about the maps and modes will be coming later on down the road, so I would think it'd be best to hang on and see what's what. I mean, who pre-orders a game 10 months before its release anyway?

Now if only an announcement for Persona 5 I would be so happy as I am hearing about this a while ago,looks good to me.

Leon's section looked good, not so much Chris' CoD-wannabe gameplay...

That all said, I'm hopin' for a big character cull as attaching 'Survival Horror' to all these guys is getting abit ludicrous! :P

It is nice to finally see RE6's reveal. However, I am sorely disappointed that the cast for RE6 (thus far# seems to focus on Leon AGAIN and Chris AGAIN. It's as though Capcom forgot that there *are* other colorful characters that have their own followings and storylines. Claire, Jill, even Rebecca.

I had high hopes Claire would be one of the starring characters for RE6. :( The focus on so many dude characters #particularly after they received several games in a row prior to) is making me feel a little wary. So far the only ladies we see in this trailer are victims or healer-support tropes. I hope there's more to it.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
