Resident Evil 6 is set up to be not only one of the best games of this year, but quite possibly the greatest entry ever in the storied franchise. Pretty much everything fans could want from the sequel is going to be delivered. Character movement looks fast, fluid, and accessible, a stark contrast to the “tank controls” that used to be the series’ staple. There is a blend of action and survival horror. The story appears to be a little darker and less campy. And I’m pretty apathetic towards Chris “boulder-punching” Redfield’s inclusion, Leon’s return has me pretty stoked.
As if the anticipation wasn’t high enough, Capcom revealed two videos at E3 today. The first is a brand new trailer that highlights more of the story elements of the game. The second is a gameplay demo that looks fantastic. Resident Evil 4 was one of the best games ever made, but if the demo is any indication, RE 6 may just give it a run for its money. Check out the videos and feel free to let us know what you think below.
